Heart Stealer 26

Hello All,

An eternity ago, I stopped writing on this blog, for various reasons. Wondering why won't get me anywhere but picking the thread up will :)

So, here we go, with quilling designs that were REALLY impressive this week. A note to the new visitors, the designs posted here are my picks from the Internet. You can not post your designs here. At the expense of sounding snotty, impress me and you'll be here automatically :)

So, what took my fancy this week? Ahem! Sometimes, simplicity is all it takes to make a tremendous impact. Stefka Beshkovska's "reindeer head" did JUST that! The sheer simplicity of the idea and perfect execution kept me glued! So, here goes the first Heart Stealer 26 winner:

The second one that had me goggling at it is Simona Elena's cute little puppy with a kitten. Simona tends to make really lively portraits using quilling. Her animal portraits need a special mention! :) This lay never seems to stop surprising us :)

Winners, please feel free to display the Heart Stealer Badge on your profile/blog :)

Some other notable ones this week were:

A quilled box by Dana Quilling

Carmelia Caplea's floral arrangement in blue tones

Yet another floral feat by Nelika Beneva

Heart Stealer 25

Hello All,

In the middle of all the Aadyaa rush, here are my picks for a quarter century of Heart Stealer Quilling designs :) The first winner is so seasoned a player at quilling that I needn't even mention anything about her prowess with the quill (oh my my, what phraseology :D).......

The first winner is Baukje from the country of dykes, who has kept me mesmerized with her creations for months on end. She has won the Heart Stealer before but this time, she bowls me over with the delicateness and elegance of her very Victorian pattern quilled tea-cup and saucer......with a spoon to go along :)

The second winner is no newbie to quilling either. His quilled Dutch windmill left not just me, but everyone spellbound. This time, Harold Nieuwenhuis is back with a Steam Engine, of all things! :) And what a steam engine :)

Winners, please feel free to grab your Heart Stealer Quilling Designs badge and display it on your FB Wall/Blog :) Congratulations Baukje and Harold :)

So, from the fragile Victorian tea-cup to a steam releasing locomotive, from Holland to USA, the only boundary quilling knows is that of your imagination.......let it loose, let us quill, let us be creative.....

Happy Quilling
