Stenciled Entry

A couple of days ago I painted a new stencil in my entryway. I really like this one and it was easy with no overlays :-) The pineapple stencil I did took much longer and was much more of a pain than this one. I used Old Century Barn Red paint and a mixture of my acrylic paints for the tannish color. So I'm done stenciling in this house now. I also posted a picture of some fat quarters I got yesterday. I love these fabrics ! I will use them for backgrounds for my stitcheries, pillows , bags, or whatever I come up with .I'm going to try to add a couple things to my Etsy store in the next couple weeks. I just haven't been in the mood to make anything for it since Christmas. Oh and I forgot to tell you that Abe is hanging in my dining room all by himself. George will be here to keep him company soon. :-) That's all for today ! Have a great Thursday !

I love your stencil!
I always had a question about that though...how do you keep it straight?
That is my fear on trying to do that in my house.
I love all the colors of your material. Can't wait to see some finished projects with it all.

I love "fat quarters" ~ they're fun to use! But I must confess ~ I really just like to stack them up and look at them! : )

The stencil looks great! Did you get that from Stencil me in? I think that's the website. I would love to do that in my hallway.
