Mum took her hook and hooked away joining all those squares to create a re-incarnated blanket for the Cat. Alas, poor Ratty did not live long enough to see the transformed holy mess. The blanket is as good as new and should last another few years.
Cat will have another blanket to snooze on ...
... and Mum will turn her attention on the bits left over.
Who knows - there may be another creation in the making.
