Quilling for Christmas
Meanwhile, I've just received my copy of Elizabeth Moad's latest book, 'Christmas Quilling' which is an ideal companion to her excellent 'Thrilling Quilling' that was published a few years ago.
It's billed as "A great sourcebook full of festive greeting ideas", and I think it will be a brilliant source of inspiration to quillers at this time of year, with our preparations for Christmas already getting underway.
The book is a 64-page paperback packed with inspiring card-making projects, and has a good introductory section on 'basic techniques' for beginners, too. There are some great templates for interesting bauble shapes, trees and stockings; excellent tips for squishing coils into six-pointed holly leaves (something I've always found surprisingly tricky!); snowflake patterns; a fabulous method for creating fir tree branches and much, much more.
I got my copy from Amazon UK, but I'm not sure whether it's available on Amazon.com just yet. You can also order direct from Elizabeth using this link. Highly recommended!
