Akhil's birthday gift.



     Akhil is turning fourteen today and this is my birthday gift for him. A quilled guitar fashioned after his own guitar.

     Akhil is so good at almost everything  he tries and he is really good at playing the guitar. He is very creative ,if I can get him away from his computer games . I haven't found a way yet:)).



      Here is a poem Akhil wrote one day when I was cross with him , he can be a real charmer when he wants to be.


Quilling strip


Oh! what is it's beauty? he asks,
For its just paper ,thin and long.
But few know the beauty it masks,
Too good to put into a song.


It's the art of quilling,
And it is easy to learn as well.
All it needs is guiding and rolling,
And there it is, ready to sell.

He is good at writing poems that rhymes.



Thanks for stopping by, Have a joyful day.

Oh my god each quilling project of yours surpasses the other-- I am always fascinated by the guitar and how beautiful you have quilled it in brown. Are the brown strips store bought? And do watermark those gorgeous quilled creations of yours so that anyone who saves them can instantly recognize them as yours.
Love
Sonia
