It's our annual village festival next month. This year, for the first time, there is going to be a 'Make or Bake' competition for people to enter, and one of the categories is a hand-made greetings card. I've started working on my entry, which is going to be a birthday card with an array of different quilled flowers on it. This has given me the opportunity to start developing some new, colourful, 'fantasy flower' patterns - and here's the first (which I think may actually be some kind of water lily):
Creating this card has become a kind of 'pick up and put down' project, and I've been having fun inventing several new flowers which I will post here over the next few days. I also need to make some leaves and tendrils, so there is still plenty to do! Then I'll have to decide how they all fit together before assembling the final card.
Meanwhile, something has just happened which I never expected: I now have more followers on my Quilliance Facebook page than I do on the blog itself! Anyway, whether you have arrived here via Facebook, Blogger or any other route, I'd like to say a big 'thank you' for visiting. It makes the great satisfaction I get from quilling even more worthwhile.
