Sometimes,I get visions in my head. The first thing ,I do is paint. Like today for example, I had this vision of the woods.
I already had my oil paints out. I figured just to use them. It has a water color feeling to it. I have different colors to choose from. Sometimes, I use the basic colors that I have. I like to try to use different ideas to give myself a little challenge. This painting took me about a couple of minutes to do. Sometimes,it takes me day ,or a week. It depends on my mood.
Sorry,that I haven’t posted in long time.Life in general has taken over. A lot has happened since I last posted.I have been working a lot.My mom is in a relationship with man that loves her. My oldest daughter moved out . I have finally gotten my Chloe back. My brother and his girlfriend moved in.We are all supposed to be taking over the mortgage. That has been a bumpy road .
I have been making memory bears for my oldest daughter. Her Bio Dad committed suicide in November.I have been making bears for his side of the family. I was in car accident also in November. I wasn’t hurt,but my van was. I can still drive it,but can’t afford to get it fixed.
I have been painting a lot. I have sold a few.I have put my paintings on Esty. No bites or nibbles on that.Even on market place no buyers. I have been struggling for while.
I wanted to make a gift for my youngest daughter. Mind you,that I haven’t really sewn in a year.I have been collecting Harry Potter fabric.
I decided to make her a quilt. She is also a Harry Potter fan.Since,she loves Slytherin,I figured why not.I figured that,if I got it done early it would be her Christmas gift.
I was kind of funny,because she saw me sewing this quilt the whole time. She has no idea it is for her.I took me about a week to complete it. The back of the quilt is fleece.I decided no to add batting.
