WOYWW - More Dumflings!

Firstly can I apologise for not visiting any blogs last week.
Our broadband went down and we were without it for 4 days!!

It caused chaos in the locality because even the local supermarket was down and everyone had to pay cash for petrol and shopping because the machines/tills wouldn't operate.
Makes you wonder how we would cope in a major disaster!

This week I am showing you my dumfing table at Annie's
I had lots of scraps of wet felted fabric so I used my hand dumfer to create some little dumflings.

Below are the ones that I beaded/stitched and mounted on card last week.
I have another dozen to finish now!! (keeps me out of mischief).

(Click on the photo to enlarge)
AND last but not least here are a few more of the lovely ATCs that I received this week.
Thanks lots everyone. ( Chris D., Robyn, & Anne) I am now planning a little album so store them in.
I made a lovely one last year so I had better get going with the next one soon.

I hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine - especially our "Queen of snoop" - Julia who has been rather a poorly girl over the last couple of weeks. Best wishes Julia - from us all!

Have a great week everyone and I promise I will try and get round some desks this week.

x Jo

Lovely atc's received and gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous dumfing. Are these for M's table? I did a click for closeup and wonder if they are flowers with a net or chiffon behind on another frayed fabric. So many questions -guess I had better email than go on on here.
Sorry to hear about the broadband - what a disaster for the locality. I never thought of something like that happening.
Take care, enjoy the sunshine
Hugs, Neet xx

It's good to have evidence of the mess you like to make when you're here :-) and of course the amazing results that make it all worth while :-)

I use cash for pretty much everything...the thought of these swipe cards fills me with horror. But being without broadband must have been a major pain in the derrière!
Those cards are gorgeous (again!), you are such a talented lady :-)

It does make you wonder how we coped in the days before the internet doesn't it. Glad you are back on line now.
Love your dumfing cards, that word always makes me smile!!

Hello Jo. Your little dumflings are just gorgeous. You are so talented! Glad you are back on line. We would indeed fall apart in a major crisis, wouldn't we? Have a special week.

Hi Jo, thanks for your visit, yes motorhome has actually left the drive and money in the bank now.
Those lovely dumflings are gorgeous, for a special occasion I presume.
Someone is going to be very blessed with them.

Fabulous dumflings! Love the variety you've go there! Our internet and tv went the other week! It was an area thing and was back on by the morning - glad we had freeview in the bedroom! Chrisx

Sandy Leigh said...

Oh my goodness - these are lovely works of art...but then I scrolled down and saw your luscious cupcakes!! So cute!! I don't know the sight of a cupcake just makes me happy--fun. Thanks for your sweet visit. I will have to share how my instant photos are coming along soon.

Elizabeth said...

Your dumflings are just gorgeous, Jo. It's hard to believe just how much we have come to depend on Broadband and computer technology ... must have like dropping into to yesterday to have to pay with cash again! I don't even have much more than some change in my purse so I would be in trouble if that happened here. Hope you have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #69

Angela Radford said...

Hi Jo, our internet went off for a day and It drove me mad. Goodness knows what it would be like to loose it for four days.
I have a friend who works from home, he actually does things with computers that the rest of us don't understand and he had to go to another part of Lincoln to do his work. I think once you start using them they take over Lol!
Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela #45

RosA said...

Love those dumfling thingies ... are they made with felted wool? I've done some wool felting ages ago and I'm wondering if it's exactly the same?
Have a good week,
