Crafts Beautiful Readers Page

Lovely to see in this months Crafts Beautiful magazine that Coleen sent in a photo of her version of the quilled unicorn from the May issue of the magazine. I am always pleased to see that crafters use my ideas but interpret the design with their own colours and themes. The readers page in on 12 and 13 of the magazine.
