Dumfing workshop.

Saturday was dumfing day!!
When M came home to see her Dad for Father's Day we had time for an hour or two in the sewing room.
She loves to craft with me and uses it as a good stress buster.
Having seen my poppy picture (last pic on this post), she decided she wanted to make some.

She had already made the tiny dumflings in the picture but fancied a different style.
So with a little direction from the one who knows......
She made the 3 gorgeous little poppy dumflings in the front of the pic above.
They are made with wool rovings and yarn, dumfed with the needle felting machine into felt.
Then the detail is added with free machining and beads.
Here she is at the sewing machine..

And here are my little poppies that I made earlier.

It was just lovely to spend time together and share a crafty session.
She went home happy, with a box of baking that we made for a fund raiser for the charity she works for and her 3 little dumflings.
I just cleared up the mess and then carried on where I left off......... pop back tomorrow to see a few more dumflings.

Thanks for calling by.
x Jo

Hi Jo I absolutely love your poppies. How sweet to be crafting with the family too. I recently made my first ever trip to Wales. It was absolutely stunning with lots of castles and I particularly enjoyed Conwy. X

Wow, beautiful work. Would love to try felting - love the tactile crafts - but will have to make do with the 'by hand' method.

Oh Jo, I can see why M was inspired when she saw your Poppy picture, it’s stunning!
Mind you, those little dumfings that she’s made are just as gorgeous I bet they were fiddly to make, being so small.

Just had to look because of the poppy theme - wonderful work by the two of you - obviously mother and daughter make a brilliant team.
Hugs, Neet xx
