WOYWW 22nd July

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog

So it's always good to try new things, right?

This was my first and last attempt at Quilling.  Believe me when I say the photo being blurred actually improves the look of the card:) LOL

In case you can't make out what it is, it's flowers in a seriously that is what it's supposed to be:) LOL

Happy WOYWW 


  1. On Sue, you made me laugh! My first attempt at quilling was awful, required too much patience and did not yield results that I would have photographed! But since then, and not very often, I do a bit here and there and it gets easier and more pleasurable! Don't give up on yourself, I think the flowers especially are really great...I certainly can't tdo quilling that tiny!

  2. Hi Sue, lol, I'm chuckling that you think the blurry pic makes it all look better. Must say I first met quilling about 30 years ago when we lived on Bougainville Island, PNG - I was new to town and thought I'd join in a few classes of quilting - thinking someone had made a spelling mistake in the advertisement...I think I still have paper strips and tools in a box somewhere as I thought it would go well with stamped sentiments. It's an interesting craft. Enjoy your week RobynO#9

  3. Wow! I could tell they were flowers coming from a container. Great job! I tried quilling one time but my fingers were useless LOL I use the quilling tool to make dimensional flowers to roll their edges LOL Hope you are doing well! love, de

  4. Lol - did you make the pic blurry on purpose? I found quilling impossible to do, far too fiddly for my fat fingers!!
    Hugs, LLJ 4 xx

  5. I haven't tried quilling because it looks a little too tedious for me.

  6. Julia, You are too really you are:)

    Robyn, The blur definitely helps as you can't see it too well:) Had to laugh at your joining the group by mistake:)

    Donna, WOW, you must have a good imagination:)

    LLJ, No the photo wasn't deliberately blurry, but when I saw it I thought it was more than good enough to show how dreadful my attempt was:)

    April, It might be something I could improve at, but I didn't really enjoy it.

    1. If unsure about a project blurr the photo, they always look better that way!
      Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 28

  7. It's not something I've thought about trying but can see just why I'd find it a pain.. way too fiddly!! I did recognise it though, through the blur! Helen 2

  8. Angela, Thanks:)

    Helen, When done properly Quilling is beautiful.

  9. Quilling is not something I've tried so to me it looks great even in motion!

  10. Michelle, Thank you:)

  11. Had to laugh at your first & last attempt comment. I'm not very skillful with the quilling either, although I think the effects are so pretty. From what I can see in the photo, I'm betting it is not as bad as YOU think it is! Good for you at trying something new. It's not always easy to share it, is it? I always hope people will be kind, and they have been. I think what shows in the photo looks pretty good (remember I shared my Zen...brave you too!) TFS & have a wonderful wkend with the girls. Hugs

  12. MaryH, I agree, Quilling looks lovely.

    Oh I can assure you, it is bad:)

    Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  13. Ah, this karacked me up, Sue! I can't quill to save my life either! By the way, thank you for that link you sent me about the African Violets! That was very thoughtful of you! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

  14. You are so funny, made my day. I tried it once, and it didn't go well and never picked it up again. Can't be good at everything, right?


  15. Darnell, You are welcome. Hope the link helped with the African Violets.

    Sue, I really don't do fiddly things as I have big hands. Still I tried it and gave others a good laugh:) LOL
