Quilled family of mice

A new baby was born to the family of mice-lovers, our friends I already made a 3D quilled mouse for. First I wanted to quill a traditional baby carriage or cradle for them on this special occasion, but on second thought found a better idea — a family of mice with a newborn baby mouse. Look how this loving couple have their tails interwoven and how tenderly they are holding their baby :) The father looks so proud!

Miniature 3D quilled tea set

Quilled cup, cake and teapot

I've been creating three-dimensional quilling recently. This is one of my new miniatures — a quilled tea set and a cupcake with cherry. The set includes a tiny teapot, cup, and saucer. I often saw similar designs on the Internet, but had never thought of making one myself. However, the idea came in handy when I needed to make a gift. I knew it had to be something other than flowers, and a decorative tea set seemed to fit the bill perfectly. I quilled also a cupcake to make the whole set more lively.
