Russian Leaf Earring

I saw the vedio of this Russian Leaf earring  and was totally impressed by this video. It is very explanatory and I wanted to share it with you all.Not up to the mark,but I am happy I gave it a try. The beads are not very even and so it is not very perfect.I will try one more and make it perfect.

B'Day Dress

I am sewing after along long time and this is for my sweet little grand daughter for her B'Day. The Blue cloth I brought from India and the lace my daughter bought it in a fabric store here in the US.
The white one we bought it as bits and the matching lace in the same store.The lace was a little bit stiff and so I did not sew it in the bottom of the transparent materisl as it hampered the flow of the material.Nothing was planned and I when I sat down to measure and cut,I decided on the design..And I am happy about the way it evolved...The B'Day is this weekend and she loves both the frocks..Just waiting for the D-Day for her to wear this dress.Will post the photos of my grand daughter donning after that..

Quilled Peacock

As I am becoming crazy over this art,whatever the thing is, I see it through my quilling eyes..And this Peacock was an inspiration for sure.This is a purse charm my daughter had and here I tried the same in quilling. I am planning to frame this and confused over the base sheet colour.Nothing seems to enhance the Peacock..

One more Earring

I am going crazy over quilling and wanted to keep on trying out different things with my paper strips.My daughter got me some tools for me and I wanted to do earrings again. And here it is.

My daughter loves doing flowers in Clay and that too miniatures.She did this Hydrangea and I did the pot to hold that in Quilling. Miniatures are always a thing of beauty and it is beautiful too:D

Lovely Quilling tool from Little Circles

I am now going crazy over quilling and especially Jewellery. I was browsing the net for more ideas and bumped into this site.This will come very handy when we want to  make bigger circles or tear drops for the earring and pendant set.I did this with construction paper and didn't use the quilling paper strips.More over the tutorial has the tool made for 5" circumference  to 1/2 "(in steps of 1/2")  .But I made just 5" to 2" only(in steps of one inch).I am planning to make one more with 4 1/2" to 1/2". I preffered it this way.Thanks a lot Little Circles for sharing this lovely tool tutorial. On top of the circles we have to stick a clear cellophone tape for the quilling paper to easily glide out after rolling.
