Barbara wrote me about embroidering a blouse for her mother with some modern Mexican motifs. Because they are intense designs with a lot of thread, I decided to stitch another one to test them. I've discovered that a market near my house may be a good spot to sell some merchandise to a large Hispanic population. Toward that end, I am collecting ideas and supplies in brighter colors that might appeal. They certainly appeal to me!
The turquoise is going to be a set of patchwork pillows. The red will be Barbara's mother's blouse.
Another idea I've had for awhile is to buy patchwork pillow shams, disassemble them and turn them into table runners. I have a set of the blue and burgundy stars and a single of the blue and green star. I'll quilt them on the longarm, bind them and offer them at the markets too. Once they were disassembled, starched and ironed, they weren't half bad!
Finally some sewing news! The organization business is keeping me pretty busy. I guess the world is full of unorganized people! :-)
