Christmas Quilling - A Few More Colours

Such a lovely day for a trip to Stratford Ontario.  My fellow retirees and I had delicious lunch at a restaurant called Sirkel.  It was super noisy, but the food made it worthwhile.  Then it was off to Rheo Thompson.  Mint Smoothies - my chocolate fix is complete.  Unfortunately my car started having electrical issues within a short distance from home.  I made it home though....whew!

Now to quilling - yay!  I've had so much fun playing with paper.  Here's a few of my new quilled ornaments in a few more colours.  As always, the glimmer paper is from Stampin' Up!

Grey, black and white.  I wasn't sure about these colours for Christmas, but I love the finished look.

I have no doubts about these colours - I love the freshness of the two shades of green with the white.

Snowy white with red and green - beautiful for the tree!

Without wheels for the weekend won't be such a bad thing.  More quilling time!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Crafting!

New Quilled Christmas Ornaments

Drum roll please.  Here are my new quilled Christmas ornaments. 
 I had brought the wood base quite a while ago, and when I saw them in my craft storage I was so happy - something new to quill - yippee!

These have been keeping me busy for the past couple of weeks!

 What to do....what to do!!  These are smaller at the top than my other quilled ornaments, and I tried a few different collars until I finally figured it out.  It doesn't show in the pics - each ornament has three collars; two facing up, and one facing down. Ta da - problem solved.

Let me know what you think of my latest ornament.  I look forward to hearing from you.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Crafting.
