This little card is indeed based on the ‘little’. The biggest flower here is about a 50p-sized coin. The petals are quite a challenge to do if you do not have small enough fingers. Luckily I have nimbler fingers and can manage them, but I do warn anybody wishing to attempt quilling at this scale. It is not easy. It is fiddly and will test anyone’s frustration tolerance. This activity can be a good ‘workout’ for those with patience problems. The visual rewards, however, once it is completed, is divine. (For me, anyway). A dream piece would be something bigger than A5 crammed with these delectable flowers. I wonder if I still have some time left before our rare British heatwave finally ebbs away into wet oblivion?

I am a self-taught designer-maker based in the U.K. I am interested in the inherent beauty of textiles and paper. I describe myself as a peripatetic maker of things, given my number of skills in crafts. Having used paper and textiles longest, these tend to feature on my works quite heavily.
