Every Inchie Monday: Egg

Hello Friends,

Welcome to 2015!

A little later today than usual (which is often 12:01 a.m.).  Hadn't scanned/photographed my image earlier in the week as I usually do.

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is egg, appropriate for the first meal/breakfast/first week of the year.

I'm not particularly happy with this scan.  The original is very bright and sparkly, as a ruby and gold (like Zoe's) Faberg√© egg should be.  Funny we chose the same colours.

My second offering is my first attempt at quilling.  It's supposed to be a soft boiled egg with the top off, in a blue egg holder.  It's a little crooked, but after 4 or 5 attempts I gave up seeking perfection.   I kept wanting to use too much paper for the inchie size.  I think I should have tried once more, from scratch instead of using my failed attempts and trying to fix it, because it lacks the smooth curves the first attempt with all the paper had.  Oh well, better next time.

Have an egg-stravagant first week of the year.


  1. Applause!!!!! Well done on your quilling debut! And Faberge eggs should be ruby, don't you think? :)

  2. love the Faberge egg! It is pretty and the quilled egg is great for a first attempt, better than I could do for sure.

  3. I love both of your two inchies. The first one has brilliant colors and the second one makes me taste a breakfast egg.

  4. Both are terrific and well done with the quilling

    Love Chrissie x

  5. Hi Kia, I love your pretty Faberge egg.
    First time ever I've seen a quilling work. I really like your quilling egg.
    Hard to do quilling on such small area, isn't it?
    Greetings Marle

  6. Great job on the Inchies!!! I love your Faberge one! But wow,..... You did a great job on your quilled one for just a beginner and for it being so small!! Fantastic!!! I love how others are giving quilling a try! It really is fun! I like to think of it as Zentangle but done with paper instead of ink!! Great job!! A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!!! (((hugs))) Annette :0)

  7. The Faberge egg is great. Your quilled egg is a good start to quilling.

  8. Woohoo! Someone's been having some fun with their inchies :-) !
