~ framed quilled owl

 ~ good morning
one of my great repeat customers {Amanda} recently asked me to make 
her a larger white quilled owl with a hint of grey that was about 5" x 3" wide 

after going back and forth via email we had it figured out what she wanted 
I made one using 1/8" wide quilling paper which I was happy with it and thought she would like it too

here it is {after I framed it}
 but I had some 1/4" quilling paper on my desk and a light went off in my head
if it was really cute in the 1/8" wide quilling paper it would be SUPER CUTE in the 1/4" quilling paper

......and it is
I love the one made with the wider paper and so did Amanda

and can you believe I forgot to take pictures of it
but Amanda was kind enough to let me borrow her finished piece {thanks Amanda}

I think I am going to have to make more of these little gems

~ hope your day is a HOOT
