Knitted Poppy

Last week there was a wonderful display of knitted poppies for Armistice day in the local post office, for sale in aid of the Poppy Appeal with proceeds to the Royal British Legion. All the poppies were slightly different and carefully made with bead detail, crafted by a local knitter.

Geometric Snowflakes

A variation on the usual quilled snowflakes can be found in the latest issue of Crafts Beautiful magazine November issue out now. I've used a Border Buddy Tool ™ to make diamonds of paper, then they are glued together for a geometric design. Although its a bright sunny autumn day here in the UK it's not too early to planning snowflake cards and decorations......

Quilled Christmas Baubles

Crafts Beautiful magazine Christmas Special is out now (yes it is still September!) and features my quilled baubles on the cover and full project with steps on pages 24 and 25. The quilling is set in the bauble shaped apertures of the cards which makes them a slightly different design I hope quillers will like.
