Quilled “MUM”

Hello and Happy Mothers Day

With the clocks changing one hour of pampering has already been lost, so without delay I would love to share another quilled “MUM” I have made.



Have a lovely day everyone.



Recycled Rolled Paper Mothers Day Card

Hello again

I have another Mothers Day card today to share.


I created the “MUM” using lengths of printed paper (which was destined for the recycle bin until I got my mitts on it) simply rolled up and pieced together.


I kept the background quite simple, with some random stamping on the cream card for added interest.


Not bad for something made of rubbish.  I have another blog coming soon with something else I have made with this same stash of paper ….. and its not a card! Watch this space….


My Mum’s finished Mothers Day Card


I shared recently my quilled “MUM” filled with flowers and today I have the finished card.


I have attached the quilled letters to a piece of acetate which is secured behind the backing matts, so the letters are suspended and bouncy.


I have kept the backing quite simple; an embossed white matt to highlight the letters and co-ordinating colour matts which I have stamped randomly for added interest.


I hope my Mum will like it on Sunday.

Thanks for visiting.


Baby Blanket


Today I have something a little different to share.

I am delighted that a good friend of mine had a beautiful baby girl recently and this is the blanket I made for her.


It is the first time I have done this pattern but I am really pleased with how it came out.  It is very textural and cosy although there are big holes.


However, as usual, as I was making it my boys took a liking to it, albeit not in girly colours and have requested bigger versions for their beds. Oh well they might be done for the winter….watch this space.

Thanks for visiting.


Ruby Wedding Anniversary

Today is my Mum and Dad’s Ruby Wedding Anniversary and I would love to share the card I made for them.


I used 4 tones of red and pink card to create a quilled flourish heart filled with mini hearts and flowers.


Here is the heart before I added it to the card.


I hope you like it.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Lots of love.



Forgotten Parchment Part 1


I have been having a tidy up and stumbled upon a bundle of parchment creations I have stored away ready for that “special occasion”.  Unfortunately, I think they have always fallen in the “don’t want to use, best save for something super special” category and have been totally forgotten about.

So, its jolly well time they were used and I will make them into something accordingly.

However, here are a few as they are now…







These designs no doubt will have been taken and/or adapted from various parchment magazines and books, which I loved to read when my boys were babies.  I loved to spend time doing parchment as very little was needed making it quick to get out and put away as and when time allowed.

I love how parchment looks so delicate but is surprisingly sturdy.

There are quite a few more to come which I will share another day.

Thanks for visiting.
