I finished cutting out the bee series, and covered them up until I got Mid-Life Crisis completed. Somehow, I managed to forget that they were ready to sew. Instead, I walked by idea board and something caught my eye. I am surprised it did not catch my eye before now. The little scrap of paper cut from a magazine has only been there the entire time we have lived in this house. It may have moved here from our last house. An idea that has taken at least 11 years to find its way into my head.
Yes, this does look quite a lot like my recent work. However, the scrap on my wall contains most of the colors I have been working with, but also a fascinating dark robin's egg blue. While I did not have this blue in my fabric stash (pretty astonishing), I was able to put a transparent wash of green over a light blue fabric. Two layers of paint gave me the color I wanted.
Now I will go and sew these pieces together. Then I will determine how to attach those floating squares. I decided to save all quilting and embellishment ideas until needed. This is all about color first. I will figure out a meaning later.
Say readers, where are all of my tips on selling on Etsy?
