Authentic Blogging

Article Archive

OK, I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a bit of a blog critic.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good blog and relish the small amount of time I find to follow my favourite colleagues on their travels.  Sometimes though, I will admit I’m a little sceptical about the authenticity of some of the photos!  You know the ones I mean, the strategically placed cup and saucer with art pens scattered on the sketching book, the casually draped fabric pieces, showing a hint of a new book release underneath!

So when I turned around from the ironing board on Friday to throw some folded squares on the kitchen table I laughed out loud at the sight before me!

Authentic Blogging (Medium)

Dutch Cottage rolls (not very strategically) thrown on the table to work on for another new project for the Culture Club, and the new Dutch Sewing Totes waiting to have their lining opening sewn up.  Plus a pattern sketch I’ve already finished for the club, along with some sensational new fabric samples (Apple of my Eye) that my friends at Riley Blake sent me.  I was working out if I could adapt the same technique to use with these fresh prints, all the while consuming some choc chip and raspberry damper I’d made for the boys after school as a treat.  It WAS going to be scones, but I put in double the required cream and milk, so a quick transformation was required!

So maybe I have been a bit harsh in my judgement of work in progress blog photos, because maybe some peoples’ desks do really look that good!  This one is a little rough, but I can honestly say, it’s 100% true blue authentic!

    I have paid for the pattern for Southern Jewels last month, but Hancocks of Paducah still does not have it in stock, what a bummer. Sometimes it is hard to be patient!!! Ha Ha
