December 26, 2016

Wow.  This is my last Low-Commitment Project.  After five years, we’re winding down the venture.  It seems fitting that my final piece is an Ideas Quilt; the notion of having an idea stockpile is really comforting to me.

Low-Commitment Projects: Chips Ahoy

December 12, 2016

This is one of those projects I’d had on my mind for months, maybe years.  The practicalities of it turned out different than I assumed when I started, but I’m still glad I did it.  See Chips Ahoy at Low-Commitment Projects.  Also, I didn’t let my husband eat the cookies out of the tub, even […]

Low-Commitment Projects: Abstract Paint-By-Number

November 28, 2016

I made Abstract Paint-By-Numbers for this week’s Low-Commitment Project because I thought the idea was hilarious.  I still do.  I’m overly pleased with the outcome of the unpainted guideline images and underwhelmed with the finished paintings.  This was my first try, and I selected the colors before actually painting the paintings, so that might not […]

Low-Commitment Projects: A Wooden Bar

September 12, 2016

This is one of my favorite projects I’ve done in recent memory.  I’d been thinking about it for ages.  A Wooden Bar is a set of painted sculptures (acrylic on MDF) representing a complete bar on a reasonable budget.  In my mind, these are like props.  See more photos on Low-Commitment Projects.
