WOYWW and the return of Mojo!

Welcome all you kind, thoughtful WOYWWers!!
The Mojo has returned!!  Thank you to everyone who left such lovely messages on my blog last week.
Yes, I am feeling fine again, thank goodness. Back to my usual bouncy self, full of energy again and raring to get on with a few crafty jobs.


 Over the weekend, I eased myself gently into my craftiness thanks to my daughter M. She left a bag of bits and bobs for me to store when she moved house (about 3 years ago!). I unearthed it and tipped out the contents. It was a wonderful little treasure trove of tiny silk paintings and card toppers that she had made.
So, I set to and mounted them all.
What a fab collection of cards we now have to share between us.



Then, I decided to make a little collage, to mount in a card, for my niece who has just moved house. She chose Friday when she had to cope with 4 inches of snow! So, I made a little house in the snow with a tiny tree in the garden. Strangely, her new home does have a little fir tree in the garden.

Now, who is this handsome young man admiring himself in the mirror? I noticed him showing off when I was down at Wipso's today. Mr Tumble is a firm favourite with lots of tinies. Little P. loves hers and sits him on the settee beside her as she watches his programme. I can see why. He is such a cuddly, little rag doll. Another of Wipso's fab creations!
So, what next for craftiness....
Well I have 2 hats to finish and then I am going to get my sock doll book out, to create a friend for Scruffy.
Have a great week - I will pop over to Julia's blog and link up with some of you later today.

Daisy loved Mr Tumble... in fact I put him on her huge birthday card which we sent to the BBC and was shown on her 2nd birthday last June!

This card for the new home is absolutely fabulous. Long may your niece's chimney smoke!
I would keep that card in the kitchen cupboard with the salt and bread we use to offer. Or have it framed and put on display. Just so so lovely!

Your house collage is fabulous and perfectly matches your header picture! Your niece will love it..you will be giving her a piece of art made with such skill, care and attention..she will keep it forever.

Well I’m glad your Mojo has returned and the silk painted cards are great. I’ve dabbled with silk painting but didn’t manage to turn out anything that beautiful.

Fab new home card too....very apt!

Re the colour of my hall.... it's Dulux Apricot White. We got it for the living room and at first we kept thinking we'd left a light on as it gave a light sunny glow. Hence we chose it again for the hall!

That is great news....love the collage card x

Susan Allan said...

Hi Twiglet it is me again. Love your header picture by the way. The stamp of the bird looks very like a bullfinch, doesn't it. It is a Prima stamp and from America so it could be anything.
Glad you liked the canvasses.

I'm so glad you're feeling much better and back to lovely craftiness again. Those cards are beautiful and I love the little house in the snow. Typical that it snows for a house move,could there be anything worse. I hope she's settled in well.
