Every Inchie Monday: Love

Hello Folks,

Don't ya just luv love?  That's this week's word at Every Inchie Monday.

I'm a child of the sixties when 'Make love, not war' was the motto.  I've never understood how people can cringe at sex in movies yet sit through the most appalling violence.  I haven't seen a really violent movie in years - which means basically I stick to the Turner Classic Movies channel.  (Of course, there is an awful lot of death in my favourite film noir mysteries, so maybe I'm being a bit of a hypocrite.)   And don't get me started on horror movies.

Enough of the diatribe.  I have this really neat gauzey fabric that, in a fit of insanity, I bought at the dollar store one Valentine's.  I have whole roll of this stuff and have never used it.  But it sure is pretty.  So sparkly.






The quilled inchie might be the easiest one I've done so far.  (I really wish the glue didn't show up so much in the picture.  I guess I'm going to have to be more careful with it and put it only where it should be, instead of everywhere, which is my norm.)







Hug everyone you love this week.  Just because.

  1. That is gorgeous fabric! Oh those glue issues for us quillists (or quillers). Once completely dry, have a go with the softest children's toothbrush slightly damp. Or a slightly damp cloth. Usually comes off. Failing that, have a go with a texta of a very similar shade - just brush some on edges lightly. Use a toothpick to apply a tiny amount of glue. I use a bottle you can see here: http://www.lulupu.com/buy-quilled-creations-tools-glue-applicator-bottle-fine-tip-quilled-creations-online-india

    I don't shop there, just telling you, as they happen to have a good photo. Have a look on Amazon (sadly we have difficulties shopping on Amazon) or eBay. This one by Quilled Creations is a good one, but you can also look up precision tip glue bottle and see what you get. Recently I bought some on eBay from a jewellery/crystals shop. Sorry to rave on, but that glue is a pain for all paper twirlers.

    1. I have since bought a bottle just like that from Quilled Creations. Luckily I'n in Canada and Amazon is good -- in fact, my main source for quilling supplies because my local craft store doesn't carry them. Amazon always says they will deliver in 2 weeks or so, and them it comes the next day! Great service.

  5. I did a quilled heart too, Kia. My glue doesn't show, but it's not as pretty as yours. I love that fabric too.
