Tissue cover

A white lacy tissue cover done in cotton thread . It was requested by a friend. It has a wedding feel to it, I think - do you think so too? Maybe the white lace and the pink flowers give the feel....I don't know ! Anyways , I hope my friend likes it. Another crochet project on the hooks which I think is just so cute. I'll post it soon.

Alteration with Quilling

And a close up of the quilling ....

I enjoyed the up cycling of this box yesterday so much that I decided to go ahead and make yet another one. The last one I made had a handmade rose by me and some die cuts. Here I decided to go with all quilling elements. I made the little African violets as toppers for this box. All in all , I think I'm going to 'alter' or 'up-cycle' stuff around the house family better watch out !

A box decorated ...2

This was post was supposed to come right after the previous post but for some reason it did not appear so I am re posting it. I decided to use the flowers to decorate a box when I saw this post by Pritesh. Ofcourse, I did not actually make a box but had one lying around which I had intended to decorate for quite sometime. It's a simple one but I'm learning. This is the first time I'm trying this and I'm also entering it for a challenge at snehal's blog. I know there are such lovely and creative entries out there but I like to join in the fun.It's the best way to learn, I feel.
