What are you working on?

Post by Quill Me on 2010-08-26, 00:22

I have been too busy with other things so I have not quilled lately.
On the weekend I was helping out with the election so Sunday was a recovery day.
Hopefully, I can settle down to some this afternoon. I need to do some childrens cards which will be a challenge for me.

Bronwyn, I think you'll do fine on childrens cards,you do nice work!
I was working on the clown, but for now I'm more into counting carbs and figuring out food portions since I just recently found out I'm diabetic.Right now I'm organizing my paper,lol while I try and think of a new project,I'm thinking more along flowers. thats it for me.

I'm working on more of the white quilled flower cards making some as Christmas gifts for friends. I'm also designing some snowflakes. I've been asked to do a "make and take" quilling demonstration at a large scrapbooking event in Toronto in October using those Cuttlebug quilling dies so I am trying to come up with some new ideas for their use there.

Paula, I'm sure that you will soon be an expert at counting the carbs. How are you organizing your papers? I need to figure something out there.

Bronwyn, have fun making the children's cards.

When I work on a project I tend to get colors mixed up and thrown in plastic container, so I'm going through them and putting paper stip around each color ,then putting in big zip lock bags and back into container,not one of my better ideas,lol

Here's a picture of a stand I made with Dowels to use for my paper strips. Paper strips are in large zip lock bags and then hung on shower curtain rings. It's an idea

Paula I love your stand, this is excellent. I will have to try making one of these, it looks really funky. I am thinking it would be good just to drape the strips over the dowel at the half way point of the strip but the zip lock bag would keep the dust off....oooh what to do!! I have everything in a basket and it's a mess, not to mention a nightmare

Hi all,
I found this clip had a great idea if you have a mega strip collection. Pat Caputo doing an intro video clip shows her work area and have a look at how she hangs her strips in the back ground. Some are on a board behind her and some others on a board along the wall. Another idea is by using that board you can buy at the hardware that fella's use in their sheds to hang tools on with the holes in them then you use those shop fitting metal peg hooks so it looks like this



Anyone else tried this method of hanging their strips? just wondering how you found it?
Karon

Recently I've been working on birthday cards. I have to make one 18th, two 21st and a 60th birthday card all for September and then a general man's birthday card and another special birthday card minus the number on it! Thankfully I came up with a nice card - showed it to all the people who wanted the cards - and they all liked it so I'm pretty much copying it and changing the numbers and embellishments.
