When I was in London recently, I visited a fantastic artists' supplies shop in Covent Garden. I wanted to buy just about everything, of course, but resisted temptation and just came away with a very useful compass cutter (for cutting perfect circles out of paper) and a bag of white polystyrene balls which I could see would be perfect for making into Christmas decorations.
So here are my first three baubles of the season. I have coated each of them with glitter glue, before decorating them with various types of quilling. So that they can easily be hung from the branches of a Christmas tree, I have made a little 'tunnel' through the top of each bauble with a meat skewer and then threaded a length of ribbon through. These first three have been a bit experimental, but I plan to make a few more to try selling at the Friday market. Hopefully people will like them ... and they are great fun to make!
By the way, I've just started taking orders for quilled watches, woven purses and personalised cards for Christmas 2010 ... you can find more details over on my Quilliance Marketplace page.
