WOYWW

Sunshine, birdsong and Spring flowers - doesn't it make you feel really good!!
I always feel energised when the sun shines, so today, I am keen to get going on a few crafty activities.
I sold one of my little dumfed pictures last week....this one

Since then, I have spent my earnings at least three times over, what with Comic relief, Sunday lunch out and then I went and paid for a subscription to the "QuiltingArts" magazine. lol

So, I decided I should get down to some serious "dumfing" to restock my picture store.
I spent the weekend with daughter M. who borrowed my dumfing machine to make some little pics for a colleague's leaving pressie.
M made some tiny dumfed landscapes and then embellished them with machine stitching. They were really lovely. So, today I am going to make a few myself.
You wouldn't believe the stash of wool, yarn, rovings and dumfy fabric I have to play with!!!!
I have a big bag full of wool roving and lots more crammed into my craft room.
So, have a quick peek at my drawers......


And a-dumfing I will go!!!
UPDATE: my drawers were in a mess! Tipped all my wool out on dining table and I am now colour co-ordinating it and putting it back all nice and tidy!!!!
Don't forget that we have now launched the BIG mystery parcel draw.  It will be open until April 4th so please don't miss out on the chance to win at least £50 worth of beautiful, hand crafted goodies.  Click here to join in the fun.

Have a great day everyone and I will pop over to Julia's tidy desk and join in with the WOYWW blog hop later.

Love your dumfed picture of the chaffinch. Cute guy and there are some feeding right now outside my window.
I am going to have to learn how to do felting shortly - ooer - is it difficult?
Thanks for sharing.

Doone said...

i am going to have to start charging - it costs too much to keep giving away...then I can come and spend my earning at your place

I am in SWales for my birthday - are you open in your bricks & mortar shop on a Monday?

Elaine Harding said...

dumfing? 'scuse the uninitiated...? whatever it is, that's an impressive amount you've got there!

Lionelsa said...

Adorable picture've sold.

MaggieC said...

That picture of the bullfinch isso pretty. I am not surprised you have sold it. Not sure if I could have let it go, if it were mine.

Roban Studio said...

Hi Twiglet,
"Dumfing" is not a word I have heard before. I suppose it's in reference to needle felting? Your bird is lovely, congratulations on selling it. Thanks for stopping by my desk. :-) Have a great rest of your week.

Jingle said...

Just look at all of that fabulous wool! And such a pretty picture, too!

Susan Allan said...

It is a wonder you could bear to part with him!
Looking forward to seeing your new pictures!!

JoZart said...

Great desk ... well drawers, there but I didn't want to be personal!!

Sherry Edwards said...

Oh, I wasn't sure where to look when you mentioned your drawers! But look I did and what delights you have in there. Is dumfing like needlefelting? I've not tried that (yet!).

Thanks for already stopping by my desk today.

Sam said...

Is "Dumfing" legal I wonder? LOL! I will have to pop over to you for a lesson one day!! Is it addictive?

RosA said...

ah thank heavens for the peer pressure of WOYWW! Makes me keep my area a "little" bit cleaner at least! I love your dumfing word...I laugh everytime I read it!

RosC said...

Lovely work - the little bird is beautifully made. I had a look at the tutorial and I get it in principle but would love to see dumfing up close. Well done on the sale.

Dumfing eh? that's a new one on me but doesn't that little bird look great.
Hugs Joanne xx

Cardarian said...

Oh the picture you made of that bird was just so lovely - I couldn't sell that but I guess you shouldn't get too attached to things! Huh you have lots of wool - I do and as my daughter got into knitting now my wool stash is slowly dissapearing - I am happy she is doing something crafty though as for a long time she showed no interest!
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian
