"Binky's Garden"

I finally finished "Binky’s Garden," the little memorial quilt to a neighbor’s cat I began working on a couple of years ago. Binky used to spend most of his time in our yard. He liked to sleep on our car (or in it!) whenever he had the chance. He was especially fond of our garden and always took time to stop and eat the flowers. And if our front door was open, he’d just sashay right in and visit for a while. DH and I absolutely adored him and he knew it. The neighbors never took proper care of him (and we couldn’t keep him because, technically, he belonged to one of their younger children). Binky disappeared one night after a big snowstorm. We were heartbroken… A few years later, we named one of our kittens after him.
