Spring has finally gotten here!

It's Spring Equinox today, officially first day of Spring! And today both day and night are the same length, time-wise. Simply put! It's been ever so sunny over here at Detola And Geek HQ after the sun was eclipsed by the moon smile emoticon

I guess it's the perfect time to spruce up your interiors with a brand new spanking lampshade ....

Day 3 Art Chain Challenge: Red & Green African Print Chevron handmade Lampshade & Cushion

This was a rare vintage ‪ African print design.The pattern was so popular that I had to join two pieces of fabric together in making this lampshade. 

A customer wanted one to match the cushion she was about to order online via my Etsy Shop. I checked with her first to see if she was happy with me using 2 separate fabric pieces to make her 35cm drum lamp shade. She said YES!!! 

Talk about precision aligning & invisible meeting line of two pieces of fabric. Phew! No pressure. At all. LOL.

Here's the feedback I received "Lovely! Well-made items. Easy to communicate with. Thanks so much! :-)

I then went on to nominate the lovely Ceridwen of Ceridwen Hazelchild Design who is one awesome Illustrator! to share for 5 days 1 creation per day & nominate a different person each time. Off you go girl.

Here are my deets if you need a lampshade or any other home decor product:
