PaperCrafter Magazine Easter Egg Cover

I'm always thrilled to see one of my cards on the cover of PaperCrafter magazine - this Easter egg basket took a while to get the right colours and weave the paper strips for the basket texture, but all worth it!

Decoupage Letters

Decoupage using Decopatch papers on to large cardboard letters - a present for a neice that was never completed so I took it back to finish! The "s" took longest but it was a nice change to be able to get messy with glue. 

since posting, it has been pointed out that said neice has been busy with exam preparations, and not had time for crafting.... !

Orla's Quilt

Congratulations to Selina and Alex - Baby Orla arrived a little earlier than expected and my quilt making schedule had to speed up rather alot! However the quilt (changing mat/play mat/lap quilt for Selina) also arrived safely and is being used. This version was slightly different to the quilt for Iris last year with more reds in however it turned out to be longer than I had expected so I'm glad Orla seems to be comfortable on it! One more baby quilt to make for Kate's baby due in April so still quilting not quilling......

Quilled Lettering

Quilled lettering can take many forms and this style is particularly in fashion in the craft world at the moment - see how to create this quilling in the latest issue of Crafts Beautiful magazine, Feb 2017 issue out now with my project on pages 24 and 25. 

With quilling papers from JJ Quilling Design which are lovely and bright.
