Shades of Blue and a splash of red....


I need to get to work....on something... I haven't sewn anything for a few weeks and I'm getting the itch do get busy.  I am struggling with what tho.  I have a special from my friend Judy in Florida.  She is a great customer and needs a lamp for in between Christmas and Easter.  I don't want to make it to much of a Valentine's Day theme, I want her to be able to use it all year not just for a month of so.  So I found this pretty blue floral print and am going to make some hearts out of it and then apply a smaller heart in the middle out of osnaburg using a blanket stitch.  It's for her kitchen and it sounds beautiful...navy blue and cream with a touch of red and barn wood floors, and a big rag rug...I'd love to see it in person.  So I'm going to add just a touch of red in this piece possibly with the bow or the container I use.  I haven't decided on that yet, wanted to make the hearts and go from there. I hope she approves of my choice of fabric.. with only ONE fabric store in town and no funds to travel or shop on line I had to do with what I found here.  I love it tho and think it will make pretty hearts and I think I may makes some Easter Eggs with it also for a shabby chic look!!  What do you think.. What do you buy??  I need to make items to sell and that is the key word... TO SELL... I need to use my time on things that will sell for me.  I need the income and would like your opinion on what you look for, I'm up for ideas and suggestions I got a couple from the ladies in my eBay group and they reminded me of things that have sold well for me in the past and I will get started on those too, so throw something at me, I may just run with it!!! :O)
I also have some great cutter quilt pieces that will make great prim eggs.... oh my, the wheels are starting to turn again....

Okay now I'd better get to it!!!
