DIY Abstract Painting

DIY Abstract Painting

Apparently I have a thing for collecting cheap boring paintings of flowers. Both of these canvases are so dull and blah. I wanted something fun and colorful and different, but I didn’t want to spend any money, so I decided to try my hand at painting again. My brother helped me put on the base coats and then he actually painted something different on them, but it was horrible (no offense Connor). So, we painted over it and when he left I...

Fat Quarter Friday: Easy Fabric Pumpkins

This week I was thinking about opting out of doing a FQF project, but then I saw how cute and easy these pumpkins from Martha Stewart were, and I knew I had to try them! Martha knows what’s up. It took me a couple hours to do all three, and that was while watching some Law and Order on netflix, so I was semi distracted. Materials: fat quarters scrap fabric for stem needle and thread embroidery thread long embroidery needle poly-fil Step...
