My latest project

Here is my latest project.  A mat for my cats.  I find that my bed sleeping felines make a very furry mess on my quilt so I decided to make them their own personal rug to sleep on.
This was the first time I had done binding on a quilt and I was happy with the result.  The 4 corners are appliqued with cat things. The side panels are a black background with little paw prints all over it.
I backed it with fleecy so in the cold winter months they can cuddle up on the warm side ... spoilt pusses!!!!
It seems to be very popular so I may have to make another one, or maybe two, so I can cover the couch as well.  But I will make them larger ... this one is just not big enough for 4!!!!


A happy, sleeping Bob cat.

Is it me .... or is it them????

I am currently feeling very frustrated with the new templates on blogger. I find I cannot make the adjustments I used to be able to make. For instance, having my title centralised in my header.  
I spent about 4 hours yesterday trying to tart up my blog with new backgrounds, buttons and boxes with about 3 of those hours wasted on what I shall refer to in future as 'the title in the header saga'. 
As is normal,  I just want my title to sit in the middle of my header but do you think I can find where to adjust it? No, of course I can't.  Now, I ask myself, have the wonderful people who have written this program left out a vital piece of info somewhere? Mmmm!! However, looking at everyone else's headers', with their titles' beautifully situated in the middle of their headers, where they should be, I have begun to suspect the problem is mine and I am unjustly wanting to pass the blame due to my incompetence.
So lovely people, if you happen to pass by here, and see an empty box at the top of the page where writing should be, and above the empty box writing where there should be none ...blame me!!!!!
And if you should happen to have any info that could help me rectify what has become to me, an insurmountable problem, I should love to hear from you.
Thank you for listening.
