I finally figured out how to put artwork in the title box across the top of the blog, but still can’t center the text inside the box. Fortunately, the color and stitching texture draws the eye and disguises the spacing problem.

It’s cold and bright today. The sun is streaming through the windows, providing the perfect nap spot for Sydney (black lab), Elsie, and The Doggie Daddy (DH). Sydney is stretched out on the catwalk upstairs, safe for the moment, from the rambunctious puppy. And Elsie is snug on the lap of whomever is in the sun. She still won’t leave the little sweatshirt on and shivers in the slightest chill, which is no surprise given her size and lack of insulation.

The photo today is the two-page spread in the next round-robin book. The rust-dyed fabric background provides interesting color and texture—and I really like the additional complexity of the stamped ivy leaves.

I'm putting the finishing touches on a rust-dyed gift set give away, so stay tuned for details!
