Mostly that's because when I'm in the zone, stopping to take photos almost never happens. That and my tutorials usually suck.
But when I do a guest post I don't skimp.
So while my friend Shannon is on vacation in my old stomping ground of Southern California, I'm at Fox Hollow Cottage today with a tutorial on how I took some old muslin napkins and used the image from my chair backs and made matching napkins.
The tutorial is the same process I used for the chair backs.
Here is the mock up along with one of the chair backs, side by side.

Ok, great Bliss, but what's this business about a barn have to do with a tutorial at Fox Hollow Cottage on napkins?
Let me just tell 'ya....
In case you don't know, Shannon is an aqua lover. And although I can think of a lot of people who would like to get their hands on some authentic aqua barnwood, when I see the color it's her that I first think of.
Early Fall of 2012 I took some photos from my neck of the woods. I did a post that included pictures like this....
There are no less than 4 wineries within 15 miles of our house. This one is right down the road.
Along with the beautiful countryside, I took photos of this barn also down the road from me.....
I saved the photos of the aqua barn specially for Shannon. About a week later - on pinterest - were photos of the barn! At first I was all like HEY, who lives by me and blogs that I don't know about? Then I was sad because Shannon saw the aqua barn that I was saving special for her.
So in honor of my guest post over at Fox Hollow Cottage;
Shannon... I love 'ya man, this barns for you.
And the aqua outbuildings too....
Just keep in mind that right now they are covered in a bunch of this stuff......
Head over to Fox Hollow Cottage and take a peek at my napkin tutorial using the CitraSolv method. They turned out P.D.C. (pretty darn cute) if I do say so myself.
Or as Shannon would say......
