Home Sweet Home – Bamboo Screen Decorated with Quilled Flowers and Leaves

Hello ladies!

It’s been a while since I last posted a project on my blog and I must say I really missed all my crafting friends! Feels so good to be back! Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to see your latest creations, but I will slowly start catching up and leaving comments.

A few months ago, I bought from Daiso (and now I am going to quote the label) a ‘bamboo partition with waveform lattice’. Actually, I bought three pieces because I liked them very much and I thought that they will look even better with some quilled embellishments. The piece is about 21 cm tall, 13 cm wide and very light. This is how one of them looked like before I added the paper decorations:

I have pretty much forgotten about them, until a couple of weeks ago when I did a little bit of cleaning around my work space (and I must say that my work space, even after spending a few hours arranging all my papers, boxes and other crafting items, still looks incredibly messy!). So, after more than half of year, I finally decided to give it a go and quill something for my bamboo piece.

As I was working on it, some friends invited us to their new home, so needless to say, my project became a house warming gift.

 To make it more personal, I added the couple of black cats next to ‘Home Sweet Home’ sentiment because my friend loves these animals.

 Here are a few more pictures, a side view and a few close ups:

 

Your comments and suggestions are most welcome! Happy quilling everyone!
