This was the gift I made for my nephew for his birthday party last Sunday.  I was too sick to go.  But every one said he liked it.  I am glad wasn’t sure what a tween boy would like.  The funny part is his little brother went up to my husband and asked if he could have a dragon too for his birthday this summer.   I guess it was a gift for multiple ages since the little brother hasn’t even started school yet.

May not look like much but it was my first attempt at quilling and it took me about 2 1/2 hours to make.

>My kids are wanting to enter a Christmas Ornament /Decorated tree contest, so out came the crafts. So far, two are making quilled ornaments and one is working on Origami ornaments. I think they are going to have a lot of fun with this project, and they have almost two months till the deadline. So I can guess there will probably be lots of glue out for the next few weeks.

I have made a little bit of progress on the Halloween yoyo quilt.
