Abby is in an art class at school this quarter. I am so happy about that!!! She never wants to craft with me…but maybe this will spark a little more interest in her. Abby chose to take this class – wow! This project came home yesterday:
It’s a latch-hook. I think I’ll bind the edges with some red fabric (?) and it will hang in my office for the rest of my days.
Here is what it looks like hanging on my office wall:
No…I still haven’t painted this room…I am just HORRIBLE at making up my mind on a color. The white splotches you see are because I filled all those nail holes and then primed over them (and now I’m busy adding new holes left and right!). And doesn’t the moulding look nice and seamless now? I don’t know why it looks curved in the picture – cause it is straight on the wall? And now you know what I mean when I said the background paper on the three flowers paper cutting doesn’t exactly “go” with the theme…gotta fix that.
Are you wondering what I’m working on? I said I have felt a quilling fever coming on…
I have been admiring, gasping, and coveting the work by Yulia Brodskaya (click on her name to see an example at All Things Paper). The project you see above is a work-in-progress and a practice piece. I’ve learned lots just by what I’ve done so far – I will finish this one and probably do another using the techniques I’m picking up as I go along. I had a quilling fever a few years back and made oodles of quilled snowflakes…and gave them all away :) Isn’t it funny how a craft can overtake a person…then they drop it…and then it reemerges in fever-form once again? No? Well, that is often the way it works with me. Carmen is going to come over this evening for a quilling marathon…yippee!!!!! Oh – one last thing – the scrolled “K” is from another awesome blog called The Daily Drop Cap. Lots of inspiration over there! Happy Crafting!!
