Geometric Snowflakes

A variation on the usual quilled snowflakes can be found in the latest issue of Crafts Beautiful magazine November issue out now. I've used a Border Buddy Tool ™ to make diamonds of paper, then they are glued together for a geometric design. Although its a bright sunny autumn day here in the UK it's not too early to planning snowflake cards and decorations......

Quilled pumpkins

Recently I've been working on a pumpkin border for a card and now positioning the pumpkins and leaves to see how they look. Hope to finish the card soon.

Quilled Christmas Baubles

Crafts Beautiful magazine Christmas Special is out now (yes it is still September!) and features my quilled baubles on the cover and full project with steps on pages 24 and 25. The quilling is set in the bauble shaped apertures of the cards which makes them a slightly different design I hope quillers will like.

Knitting practise

Autumn is here and a spot of knitting practise today, thankfully Youtube helped to remind me how to cast on and will probably be needed to cast off.

Art on the Prom

Art on the Prom is always a great event (if the wind and weather holds) and my favourite was the "Felixstowe Finds" painted stone display - this summer anyone could paint pebbles and stones, then leave them on the beach for others to find.
