Very cool! I'm amazed that you roll your own quills from cornhusks!

I have SO much to learn. You are a constant source of wonderful ideas. And, the pictures are beautiful.

I was visiting my sister in law on Sunday, and they spend time in Canada every summer. She showed me pictures of the quill art work that a vendor was selling up there. Very wonderful pictures of bears and eagles. And they run very high in cost. She has one tiny basket, in very bad shape because someone was going to throw it away. Most of the quilling was gone. I would love to see some examples in person sometime. Here's a link to the quillwork online:
