Paradise regained!

Happy new year everyone! Now that the festivities are all over, I'm going to let you into a secret: I'm not really a great fan of Christmas. Here in the UK, normal life practically comes to a halt for the whole month of December as we prepare for and celebrate Christmas/New Year. It feels to me as if everything goes on hold until after New Year's Day - and even then, there's more to be done as all the decorations are taken down and put away.

But finally - finally! - I managed to get back into my craft room today, and have just spent the entire afternoon quilling for the first time in several weeks. What bliss! In fact, I remarked to my mother that it feels to me like 'Paradise regained'. Unfortunately, it was dark before I could finish and photograph the card designs I produced, so I will have to wait to post them over the next few days. Right now, all I have to show you is another digital layout which I have recently managed to complete, featuring what is, for me, another aspect of Paradise: the beautiful Isles of Scilly where we often spend our holidays. If you look closely, you'll see a little quilled starfish towards the base of the design. That's the best I can do in terms of quilling for today, but tomorrow I'll photograph my new quilled cards for posting here on Quilliance - and things really will be back to normal once again!


  1. Happy new year to you. I enjoy Christmas but I also like seeing it end too :)
    Love your digital layout and can't wait to see your new cards

  2. Thanks Ann. The camera will be coming out just as soon as we've got some daylight here!
