OK, I am in a confession mood.
I know I may be in danger of being stoned, or thrown out of some quilting circles.
Or the cake making circles I never joined in the first place! haha.
But I don't find I have any connection with Civil War Reproduction Fabrics. I find them rather dull, &
I am not sure if it is because I don't feel any connection with the American Civil War, or because of the dull colours. I just dont 'get it'?
The extremely drear colours, just don't appeal to me. My soul craves bright, cheery, even dazzling, colours.
Maybe it is the same lack of feeling I had for movie stars? Or singing stars? Just 'famous', in a world that did not involve, or engage me?
I can admire people who use those fabrics for their patchwork, or quilts. I don't, however, want to join them or use any of those brown & humble fabrics.
Dare I confess, I have never wanted to do a Dear Jane??
Why would I? When I have a world of Brights to choose from? A whole new world of dazzling colours & prints? I must be a 'Strictly Modern Millie'!!
Another confession I have, is relating to "CUP CAKES"!!!
I really don't get the obsession with these things??
I realise these pictured above, are really Butterfly Cakes, in the Southern Hemisphere. Made with dobs of Sponge mix in little cup cake pans. Then you cut the tops off, & plaster them with cream & maybe some jam, before returning the tops in butterfly mode. They are a PIA to make, & quite frankly, "Life is too bloody short!!"
These pictured below, are Cup Cakes of another variety. They can also be made with dobs of sponge mixture, or whatever cake of the day, takes your fancy. Slather them with enough sickly/garish toppings, & you have CUP CAKES!! TA DA!!!!
I might be heard in the background, muttering, where is the dip? Where are the cheesy bits? The savouries?
