                             A Crested African Porcupine is quite large, they can grow up to 3 feet long and nearly 2 feet tall.

                             The Porcupine waddles like a duck when it walks and will shake its body like a dog many times throughout

                             the day. Quills will fall out to make room for growth just like shedding.

                            The myth is that Porcupines shoot their Quills into their enemies, but not so. A Crested African Porcupine

                            flares out his thick sharp Quills like a turkey flares his feathers when trying to impress his lady friend.

                            The Porcupine follows by shaking his body violently which makes an incredible rattling noise like a 

                            rattlesnake. He then runs directly towards his enemy, backward, to stick his Quills into the predator.

                            These Quills can become fatal to a Lion or other unfortunate soul who seeks him for a meal.

                                                                        These Quills are Sharp!                   

                                                 

                            I chose to use custom-made Lamp Work Glass beads for this project. Lampwork glass beads have

                            the least chance of fracturing or breaking due to the process it takes to make an exceptional Lampwork

                            glass bead. 

                                                                       

                                                                         Don’t let looks be deceiving! Most Quills are not straight. Many appear wavy or

                                                                         curved but each has been tested to work as a useful tool.

                                                                         Curved quills work well for those who like a tool to fit the shape of their hand and 

                                                                         are extremely comfortable. 

                                                                                              One of the best features

                                                                        of the Porcupine Quill is they are giving and softening with the warmth of

                                                                        your hand. This will make the Quill very comfortable and conform

                                                                       to your hand. This feature allows for comfort with those long hours of stitching. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

                                                                                      I GUARANTEE MY WORK

                             Every Porcupine Quill goes through quite a bit of stress while being made into a Laying Tool.

                             So much so that it is highly unlikely that one would break during normal use.

                            However, should you ever have an issue with cracking, splitting, or breakage, please return the product

                            to a Needlework shop for a replacement. I will not be able to fix the Quill but I can put a new Quill with the

                            same bead top. If a bead should break, I might be able to find another of a similar appearance

                            for a replacement. 

                                                 DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE IMITATIONS! EVERYONE WHO TRIES TO COPY MY WORK

                                                 IS FAILING TO MEET THE QUALITY AND BEAUTY OF MY PRODUCT.

      HOW CAN YOU TELL IF WHAT YOU HAVE IS ONE BY LOVE YOU MORE?

ASK THE SHOP WHERE YOU

PURCHASED THE LAYING TOOL IF THE TOOL IS BY LOVE YOU MORE,

THE ORIGINAL PORCUPINE LAYING TOOL.

                             I hope you enjoy your Laying Tools, I certainly enjoy making them!  

                                 Love You More-
