Quilled Hats

Always great to meet a new group of people and introduce the wonders of quilling - thank you to North Cove and Barnby WI for asking me to come and run a workshop. The group all did amazingly well and produced two cards using open coils, pinched coils, tight coils and fringed flowers. 
Thank you to the group for the photo as mine came out too blurry.

PaperCrafter Magazine and Iris folding

Many will know that I was not originally a fan of "iris folding" a technique of layering paper, however over the years I have made many cards and now like to explore different options that this technique allows. In this months PaperCrafter magazine you can see three of my latest cards with step by step instructions. The heart shaped card is featured on the cover of the magazine😉

Paper Cut Flower

It has been a while since I posted a photo of a paper cut flower, one of my favourite cards to make listening to the radio. Yes each petal is cut and glued on individually to make the flower.

Quilled Unicorns

Great to see my quilled unicorns in the May Issue of Crafts Beautiful magazine out now. These were fun and easy to make using open coils for the unicorn mane and a quilled cone for the horn.

Union Jack Sewing Machine Cover

Snowy weather is good for sewing and I had the chance last week to catch up on my project of a cover for my sewing machine using a Union Jack flag design - thank you to Amanda for the inspiration and piping technique.
