WOYWW (on Thursday).....

once again I have fallen by the wayside in the blogging world.....ah, well......sometimes real life just interferes....or we don't have much to say or....well, any number of silly things happen actually.....I can't tell you everything now can I ? ..... ...hahahhaha...

But....look at this perky little 'dumfling' I received.  Yes.  That's what it is called.  A name invented by its maker...Twiglet.  Pop over to her blog and see what she makes .... dumflings are only one of her many creations.  And, it's not on my desk....but on my dining table at the moment...til I move all this fun stuff in preparation for my renovation.......another whole story....arrghhh!!















Last week was supposed to be a trade of ATCs at WOYWW...but, I was sidetracked like I mentioned...and didn't get around to making any.  Wasn't even home.  Twiglet offered to trade away one of her lovely little dumflings and I jumped at the chance.  She didn't set a deadline for my return ATC .... thanks so much Jo.

here you can see it closer..... it is felted .... and stitched ....and has some seed beads in the flower centers... I love it.



















If you want to check out what WOYWW is all about ...go here...... Julia tells all....

...isn't it just the most gorgeous ATC, an unusual technique with delightful results, I bet the colours are much richer in 'real life' too, there's no doubt Jo is one talented lady and so giving too...hope all is ok with you & that the renovations are going to plan, thanks for dropping by me...Mel :)
Yes my Daughters cat is a Marbled Bengal and is apparantly partial to hair brushes!

How fab is that ATC... I love the technique used and might have to adopt the 'dumfling' saying.

Your little bears are just gorgeous and have such huge personalities.

Those dumflings are finding themselves a home all over the globe. How fun is that? A renovation, huh? Sounds like a lot of work. I have to lay down now just hearing the word.

Terra said...

That is a lovely creation; it looks like sunflowers, a favorite of mine.

Susan said...

How gorgeous, and with seeds in the middle - very creative!
Oh, renovations can be such an awful word ... beaut when it's all done though :D)

Darnell J Knauss said...

Sorry you missed the ATC swap! You've gotten a gorge dumfling, however! Thanks for coming by to visit; I've not got round to all the WOYWWs yet. Have a great week!! Darnell

Diana Taylor said...

Wow, it's so gorgeous - you must be thrilled with it.
Thanks for dropping by my desk - hope you have a great week.

Twiglet said...

Aw that's a lovely post - thanks V. Do hope the reno work is going well. It will be well worth all the effort once it's done! It's wet here today so I am dumfing poppies - bliss! x Jo

Julia Dunnit said...

Yep, that Twiglet is a clever gal, no doubting. Liking the gerberas too - they can never fail to cheer me. Renovation..argh..you'll be off the radar fora while then?! Good luck.

Carol Hornby-Clements said...

Love the ATC. Renovations are hard work. Hoping you survive it. LOL

This is the second time I've heard the word "dumfling". This is a totally new word to me...guess I'll have to check out the link to learn more! It is beautiful by the way! I totally understand about "life getting in the way of blogging"! Valerie #26

Valerie said...

I'm laughing as I just went to the link you posted of your friend "Twiglet" and that was the first place I heard the word "dumfling"! I had already visited her blog! It really is a "small world"! Valerie #26

Serena Lewis said...

What a darling, little dumfling! It has a lovely, happy feel to it.

Glad to see you post again. I understand all too well about life getting in the way of blogging....seems to be happening to me a lot of late.

Have a great weekend,
Serena

Oh, how beautiful this atc is! What a cute name she came up with, "Dumflings"! :D, I love it!
...well, as you know, I fell off the bloggy bandwagon for a long, long, loooong time, because of our own house construction. There was just too much to do and think about, plus my work area got all packed up and put away during part of it. (We added a second floor, but the main level and the basement also got involved!) I'm just happy it's over now. I can totally understand what you're going through, Vee. I hope everything goes smoothly, and things for you get back to normal again real soon! xoxo Paulette
