Happy WOYWW 3rd Anniversary!
I can't believe it's 3 years since we started joining Julia and her mad Wednesday blog hop!
A big thank you Julia for keeping it going all this time and enabling us to meet so many lovely crafting "buddies"!

Now.....
In order to be able to join in the ATC pass it on scheme, we have been busy making a few little dumflings.
(To the un-initiated... a dumfling is a tiny creation, made using felt/fabric/yarn etc and "dumfed" together with our "dumfing" or needle felting machines.)
Here are my dumflings - I like to get them out on a sunny day, on the grass, for a nice photo!


Whoever is my buddy on Mr Linky will get one of these.

Some of my dumflings were a little too large for an ATC so I stitched them in a random fashion onto cards for my friends' birthdays etc.




Being the generous soul that I am - should anyone else wish to swap an ATC for one of my little dumflings just email me with your details and I will see what I can manage - first come first served I guess.
UPDATE - just busy with a few more so please email if you would like one.
Have a great 3rd anniversary Wednesday - let's raise a glass of something bubbly by way of celebration!! CHEERS!
x Jo

Happy 3rd WOYWW Birthday! Great to be part of this wonderful fun group! Evidence on the blogs of Neet and I this week. I'm drawing from regular visitors for my 15 Atcs so I hope you get one! I won't do a one for one swap but you've made some beauties.
Enjoy the Jubilee weekend... love joZarty x

Happy WOYWW 3rd Anniversary. How does such a simple thing as an ATC swap get itself into such chaos. Or perhaps it's just me, I am easily confused you know!!

Would love to swap ATCs with you.

Happy 3rd WOYWW!!
Gosh Jo, those ATCs are pretty - you clever thing! Hasn't it been just the best morning - lots of love and happiness winging its way around the Interweb. I just hope Julia is getting the vibes over in Spain over just how much what she does actually means to people!
Good luck with the yoga :D
Hugs, LLJ #77 xx

Ann B said...

I'd love one, if there are any left - beautiful work. I tried my first stitched ATC yesterday and it is bobbins (technical term) compared to these beauties. Will email you.

Happy WOYWW Anniversary Jo!

I just don’t know where you found the time to make all of those but you’ve certainly surpassed yourself. I haven’t even managed to make one for the swap which is why I’m not taking part this year.
Have a great week.

Happy Crafting!

Serendipity Stamping said...

Oh these are fantastic! Wish I had extras to swap. But I am a lazy girl only made the one, well really I was busy running various family members back & forth so not much time for me this last month.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

What is that lush fabulous green stuff your ATCs are on?! Is that that stuff they call "grass"?! Oh my. As allergic to it as I am, I miss running barefoot in the grass here in the desert. Anywho.. beautiful and creative ATCs. I confess to never have seen an ATC that wasn't paper. It opens new doors in my brain!

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

Oh dear Jo think there may be none left by look of all the comments should have read them before rushing off to email you - please do not to worry if all used up - you are more than generous in your offer of cute dumflings and it is very long way to post downunder!
Mind you am so pleased to be home again downunder - as much as I love your very beautiful and so wonderfully historical country the climate would get to me.
Thanks so much for popping over to say hi, and happy 3rd birthday of WOYWW! thanks so much for sharing, Shaz in Oz. x #30

Hi Jo, thanks for popping by. That WOYWW house is absolutely fabulous, I love it. I've got a house project on my list of things to do, I just hope mine are any where near as good. I adore the dumfed ATCs too and would love one, hope I can even though I don't join in WOYWW any more.

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Clicking on you email link didn't work for me (says default client not properly installed :-/, I always get that when I click on an email link from a website) So hope you don't mind me leaving it here anneevo46atgooglemaildotcom - someone said to do it like that in Blogger so spam programmes can't pick it up?
