My First Time: Quilling

The other day, I pinned this quilled piece by Sabeena Karnik, and then I immediately ordered a beginner's quilling kit from Quilled Creations.


Sabeena's heart is utter perfection and her typography is awe inducing (so, go look at her site), but I wanted to give it a go myself and this is what I came up with.


Not nearly as cool, but definitely fun and a low cost craft.  It will take a lot more practice for me to come up with anything amazing, but that is just about time.

And, in the kitchen, I made these scones for our V-day breakfast today.  They're from Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and they are T's favorite scones.  We're not vegan, and we totally consumed them along side bacon and eggs (and some fruit), but damn near everything I've tried out of that book is amazing.  I added cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger to the recipe and, for half of the batch, I added about 1/3 cup of oats and 1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips, then I sprinkled the tops with red and gold sanding sugar for a little bit of a festive feel.
