Harvest Time - Quilled Vine

After perusing pages of embroidery patterns, I was inspired to quill this Jacobean vine... the flowing layout and scrolls seemed like a perfect fit for paper filigree. It's my only Thanksgiving decoration on display at the moment... eek, I'd best get busy and pull together a table centerpiece. Tomorrow is coming quickly!click for closer view

But first, let me say I love working with Jane Jenkins line of quilling papers - in this case, autumn shades. They're just the right weight, roll so smoothly, plus have a nice bit of sheen to the strip edges. If you're in the U.S., check with your online quilling supplier as a few carry Jane's papers.

And Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who will be celebrating. Once the dinner table has been cleared and the football games are over, I hope you'll find a moment to come back to all things paper. I'll be featuring a cornucopia (when does one get to use that lovely word except at this time of year?) of quilled Christmas projects all month long, plus lots more inspiration from the wide world of paper.

Goodness me! I just noticed your blog, and i cant make it "unnoticeable" for myself anymore! :P
I really love your work, it's really beautiful, I love quillling too, though im really new at it, and not at all that good, especially because the materials are not available here in Denmark, but that doesnt stop me! :)
Thanks for starting this blog! :)
