Asteraceae and Yummo - all quilled

Every Inchie Monday this week has Thistle, which is very amenable to quilling.



The twinchie is quilled too. It's Cake!!! Every town has one and Melbourne is no exception. We've got Acland Street (which happens to be in the suburb I grew up and live in). It's like an exhibition of cake shops that were started by European immigrants some time after the war. Europe does cake well.




And just once more, here is my winning piece. I picked it up with all the awards and certificates.


And there were also prizes. They gave me $350 worth of paper stuff, stamps, washi tapes, etc. Not something I would rush out to buy. But for free..... that a different story, I will find use for this. For example, there are plenty of candidates to tangle on.

  4. HA! With all those goodies you will now have to go down another rabbit hole and start art journaling!!! You would really love doing it too, I'm sure! Love all that quilling. I used to make miniature food from fimo but I guess I will need to try quilling some too now :)
