Heart Card

This is made from quilled roses. I think it's cute - I made it a couple of years ago, but have had a hard time wanting to give it away because it's too pretty to use. LOL.

Princess Collage and Floral Names

This is for a friend who is about to have her second girl (Alia). She already has one daughter (Clara). So, for a baby shower gift, I am giving her a princess collage with a castle, a tiara, and a glass slipper. She will also get her girls' names - their not mounted yet - still on the cork board - to flank the collage. I think she'll like it.

Larger Wedding Borders

Since I was asked to show a larger dragon, I thought, hmmm, maybe I should show larger everything and get rid of the little pictures at the bottom. So, here goes - wedding borders:

This one was made for Mike's boss who recently got married, but had everything. Or she thought. She brought this around to all the office to show off. I was very honored. One of the other employees there even commissioned some work for me - but she doesn't need it until February, so I don't have it done yet - still working on nativities for family.

Here's another "wedding" gift (really a family sealing - temple marriage - they've been married civilly for 11 years, but the husband just joined the church last year.):

Larger Dragon Image

I've received requests for a larger image of my dragon, so here it is. Sorry that it's a bit blurry. I am not good with computers and gave you the best I've got. Hope you can see it well enough.

Also, please know that although I did quill this dragon, the original design is not my own. It is a Jillian Sawyer stained glass design from her book, "Of Dragon Wings and Faerie Things."


Christmas Quilled Cards

I think it would be easier to view my quilled work if I pasted the photos into posts. So, this is the new format. If you happen to be one of those (and I know there are a lot of you out there as this blog isn't widely known about yet being so freshly created), ignore my new formatting words.

Here are the Christmas Quilled Cards.

Green & Gold Poinsettia Card Burgundy Poinsettia Card
I'm teaching how to make these for Super Saturday.

Nativity Card
This design was borrowed (with permission of course) from a lady in Argentina. I taught the Laurels in our ward how to make this card. They helped me a couple weeks later teach the other YW how to make simple flower cards - I don't have an image yet, sorry.

Jane Jenkins Nativity Design
Jane Jenkins design (expert quiller - http://jjquilling.co.uk/index.html) One of my friend's hubby thinks it looks like a bird swallowing it's young. We had to explain that Mary isn't sitting in a nest (although I can see that), but sitting on some straw.

I've got more Christmas cards to share, but need to tend to my mom duties. Will post more later.

2nd Blog - just for ramblings

I realize this is being redundant, but I'm telling you I can't help myself. So, just in case you didn't get it from my other posts, I created a second blog just for ramblings and the like (I'll put family photos there, too, but ramblings take priority).

This blog is now dedicated completely to my art.

It's www.hotfudgebrownlee.blogspot.com

Have fun!

New action plan...

Since I've got so many quilled pictures - and we've only seen the tip of the iceberg here - I have decided that I need a second blogspot just for my ramblings and this will be dedicated to my quilling. So, I will be in the process of creating a second blogspot soon - as soon as Dallin goes down for his afternoon nap. There just isn't enough room on the sides to share all my quilling. I might even move over the posts I had from Saturday.
