Quilled Santas

Some more quilling - hooray!

It's our Somerset Woolavington workshop this weekend and I've resurrected a santa pattern that was one of the first projects I did when I joined the group 25 years ago!!

I've updated the repertoire as you can see in the picture - I will work out how many feet of paper are in these little chaps, I did years ago.

Hopefully this will keep everyone busy tomorrow, not that this is the only thing we have in store!

Most of these are made with 5mm paper in various colours which was supplied by the excellent JJQuilling.

Back again for colouring in!

Apologies for the disappearance again - I thought I would go 'mobile' for a few days but it turns out Apple isn't so keen on the blogger app any more and I struggled to even put a note up saying it wasn't going well!

I still have lots of quilling pics to share but will start from a non-quilling workshop I did last week.

I was in the Lake District for a few days and managed to catch a workshop at the Paper Warehouse in Kendal with the lovely Clare Rowlands.

We did these 2 projects:

I wouldn't normally go for these colours but they are on a Christmas paper pad and something a bit different.  My Copic bag got to go on holiday too so I enjoyed a bit of colouring in.

These 2 pics (sorry for the reflection) are either side of the bauble.

We got to use a bit of shrink plastic too and I love the pom pom idea for snow.

Thanks to Clare again and the lovely staff at the Paper Warehouse - workshops include a little buffet lunch too so it's a super few hours.
