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.

August Bank Holiday Christmas Crafting

It's quite hard to think of Christmastime on this sunny and warm August Bank Holiday here in the UK! Generally our Bank Holidays are cold, raining and about staying indoors, however my quilled robins are on the cover of PaperCrafter magazine issue 112( Robins were first seen in Crafts Beautiful magazine last year) and my die cut forest card is also on the cover. The forest card can be found on page 89 in the feature "Ask the Experts".

Stained Glass Boat

It's always great to be on the receiving end of a handmade present (doesn't happen as often as I'd like😉) but this stained glass boat was given to me yesterday as a "thank you" and very pleased I was to open the parcel. Bit hard to photograph glass but the shadow is captured in the background.
