One thing I would like to do is to work harder at my blog, mostly because it's something that I enjoy and secondly because I am a bit of a wannabe writer / full time crafter. Pip Lincolne is someone I would love to be, if she ever felt like a life swap and as part of her blog school, this post is my over due and late homework.
The task was to list your favourite blogs in a post which for me was just too numerous to even start to think about. Instead I am listing my favourite blogs by women that I would like to swap lives with in order to discover whether the grass really is greener.
Jane Brocket Yarnstorm - she writes the books I would like to write, her blog is fabulous and I want to make quilts, cakes and take amazing photos just like her. I did actually meet her the other day and felt completely humbled by her loveliness.
|Especially for Jane if she should ever be kind enough to look at my blog|
Tif Fussell Dottie Angel - she has her own chickens, works in a shed, has recently written a book called Granny Chic (I can't wait for my copy to arrive). Her world is crammed full of doilies and lace and just pure vintage prettiness.
|Totally Dottie Angel inspired|
|I seriously do Mod Podge everything - check out the labels on my side bar|
Alicia Paulson - Rosie gets Cozy - This lady has written the most amazing embroidery book and is incredibly talented at stitching. I love her embroidered felt ornament patterns so much that I bought one and made my own.
And of course I am a massive fan of Pip Lincolne from Meet me at Mike's. I don't think that it is a coincidence that she is also an author of brilliant books and my blog school teacher. I love her style, the fact that there was a Mike's at all or could still be and that there is, in my imagination. Even better is that this Mike's would be a lot closer to my sister (she lives in Australia) than I am at the moment and I could meet her there and Pip and have the most wonderful time.
