WHEN THE INK MEETS QUILL
WITH LOVE MY LETTERS ARE FILLED
( I admit, I had to look this lyric up...though I'm talking about a different sort of quilling on the blog today!)
It has been another busy and fun filled week! I don't have an actual desk to share today simply because I haven't made it over the threshold of the JanCave! My band came third in the contest (missing out on second by a couple of points...doh) and I had a house full of family on Sunday.
So yesterday's WI Craft Club came as a blessing in disguise as I can show you what we did - quilling! I've never done it before so it was interesting to hear how Jo, the teacher does it.
Basically you wrap thin strips of paper around a tool, glue the ends, take it off and squish it into various shapes. Then you do something with it. There were three of us on the table so we made a card together!
Helen and Judith - we were at school together, so we've known each other a looonnnnng time! It was quite meditative doing the strip winding and we were chatting away while doing it.
The girls in the kitchen were much better than us, lol!!
It was a really fun morning and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would but it's another hobby that I won't be taking up!
We've been down the harbour a lot over the weekend, combination of high tides and gorgeous weather. Unfortunately it means the lifeboat carried out its 29th callout of the year on Sunday. I am doing training on the electronic till in the new shop this afternoon so I may be late leaving comments.
Have a lovely few days and I'll see you next Wednesday :-D
