Breaking the silence ...

No post from me for seven days ... what's going on?? Well, life I suppose!

I've been preparing for house guests, helping a friend compile a digital book, clearing out cupboards in readiness for the delivery of a new bookcase - and not very much in the way of quilling, I'm afraid.

So here - in no particular order - are three bits of quilling that I HAVE managed to complete this past week:

A birthday card featuring two more of my multicoloured 'cut eccentric coils', with lots of twirled ends and a couple of extra filigree pieces added:

A little abstract set of solid coils that I mounted on to a photo of an electric guitar and drum kit, to make a birthday card for a (male) rock musician:

... And a little bit of beehive quilling to illustrate an article I've just written for Quill America magazine (for members of the NAQG) featuring 'new trends' in quilling techniques:

I've said it before - when it comes to quilling, life has a habit of getting in the way!

I hope to have more to post soon ...
