Beautiful Quilling

Gorgeous quilled artwork by Yulia Brodskaya via Craftzine.

Like any lifelong crafter I have tried many crafts. Quilling is one of them. Somewhere in my disorganized house is a quilling needle or 3 and a pack of quilling paper strips (or 2), although I don’t think I actually have a quilling strip cutter (yet?).

To my mind, quilling and Chinese knotting have a lot in common. They are both dimensional and flat-ish at the same time. Also, I love the swoops and curls of quilling and would love to incorporate them into my work. Perhaps with wire.

Power to the (Spinning) People

Spinning wheels in general tend to very expensive. Apparently, powered spinning wheels are very, very expensive. But if you (or someone you know) have the DIY spirit, you too can have a nifty powered spinning device (wheel part no longer needed).
