|Inspiration for Nativity Quilling|
“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross quotes (Swiss-American psychiatrist and author )
|I quilled each section, shaping it to the stained|
glass panel, then wrapped each section with
black quilling paper to set the section off.
|I held the sections with pins so that they would retain the shape|
|Slowly the image was forming|
|I changed some of the colors as the original had too many red panels for my taste|
|In October 2007, wildfires ravaged California.|
We evacuated and I forgot to pack this project-in-progress.

Thankfully, our house did not burn down. I stopped doing my craft fairs in 2008, and I never sold this piece. But every Christmas, this graces our mantelpiece.
