    Ink blot begone

    Someone (temporarily in the doghouse) left a book bag with an accidentally uncapped ink pen on my log cabin cushion, and it bled all over a few of logs. Ugh. Tried washing, of course, didn't work. Took quite a bit of unstitching and restitching, but the cushion cover is good as new/old again.

    Nice fix! Can the culprit come out of the doghouse yet?
    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!

    IMHO, that 'person' (most beloved, I'm sure) needs to make some serious restitution for their actions. --- Jane

    I'm sorry it happened, but I'm glad it caused you to share your cushion. It is beautiful and I have that bench, too, so I may have another project.

    Yeah. Sometimes you just have to grit your teeth and do it, you know?

    And thanks, everyone.

    Beautiful cushion and so glad you were able to save it. I think the "someone" feels really bad and needs a hug

    Love the cushion and you did some job on the repair. Is all forgiven?

    Oh I would have been upset too, that's a beautiful cushion!! Did you try some rubbing alcohol? And I've gotten great results from hairspray too...spray it on the ink, let dry, and launder.

    Gorgeous cushion. Hope there's not a next time but if so try using a cheap hair spray to remove ink - it works.

    Did you try milk to remove it. I'm not sure why but it did remove some inks from my father's shirt pocket sometimes.

    If this happens again, Heaven forbid, try using rubbing alcohol to remove it. Keep blotting it, usually removes most if not all. Love the cushion.

    I think he/she should take you out to lunch, and then to a fabric shop. That'll teach 'em.

    Boston1954 has a great idea - have the culprit take you shopping at the local fabric shop. You did a beautiful job of repairing - no one would know!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
