  • My 24 year old Easter Egg

    When I was 15 (yes sadly that's 24 years ago) I went to learn the art of quilling at night school. I loved it and created loads of stuff. Sadly though the only piece I know of that has survived the years is this Easter Egg that I made on a real hens egg. I gave it to my Grandma and she put it into her special glass fronted cupboard and there it stayed until last year when she went into a home. It now stands proudly on my daughters display shelf.

      That's kept really well! It's lovely and neatly done. What stopped you quilling?

        Just goes to show how much handmade items are treasured - what a lovely little story (and pretty egg!).

          It's really fantastic and it looks so good even after all this time.

            Some of my old pieces look a bit battered now - but I think it was partly due to them not being terribly well made (won't dare put them on view!). I think I only keep them so I can see how bad I was....

              Lovely! It must have taken ages. I had a go at quilling once. One of the girls got a free kit on the front of her Art Attack mag and didn't want to do it so I had a go. I found it very fiddly and gave up almost as soon as I'd started! You must have a lot of patience!
              Isn't it nice that Grandmas keep our stuff. My Nana has kept every wibbly wobbly clay pot that my brothers and I ever made her!

                When i was 15 there wasn't the ease of supplies, no online stores and when I moved to London i had no contacts to get the strips.
                I have done a bit recently, but need to brush up my skills before I show you any!!!

                      That's great and even better your gran kept it all those years. My mum is going through a faze of tossing things out so most of my precious childhood masterpieces are probably in pride of place in the bin.

                      Cheers.

                          I've watched a bit of quilling being done on TV but nothing like these, theyre amazing, and just imagine you having to make all the titchy strips yourself?! Wow

                            LOL you beat me to it!

                            It is lovely and I can't believe it's still in one piece after 24 years! It wouldn't last 24 mins around me, I'm so clumsy!
