I tried to sew using upholstery thread, a topstitching needle ... and probably too many layers of fabric. So I am resorting to hand-stitching this thing back together. When I was up in Indiana, I managed to find a pair of Machingers gloves recommended to me a few months ago by Nay, an avid quilter who also has done bridal sewing and gave me all kinds of useful advice on sewing my silk charmeuse tunic. These do help grip the needle for pulling it through the layers, but don't protect me from accidentally putting the needle point up and under my thumbnail.
So I have one corner fixed, halfway through the other, and still one more to go. Then I have the fun of putting the "pillows" pieces back in right.
Something unusual from last night: my usually camera-shy Cuddle Kitty posed just long enough for me to snap a pic of him. This time, he wasn't posing on the new Camster cabinet (I have been shooing him and the Terrorist Kitty off that cabinet since I set it up!) or a pile of fabric. So I now have a cute pic of my only skinny cat:
