Dumfing ? ......

Yes, dumfing. This is what Twiglet and I call our embellishing :-) The machine dumfs the fabrics together. It sort of goes dumf dumf dumf when the needles push the fabrics together. So we have invented a new word for it :-) verb....to dumf.

Well, now you know that, I can tell you I was dumfing most of yesterday. I 'painted' with threads and fabrics and then added beads to design a few new cards and thought I would share them with you.
I would have blogged them yesterday but the one had to be given to it's new owner before I put them on here. [I gave her the yellow one and she really loved it :-) ]. The lighting was really poor and I'm sorry to say it's not a brilliant photo but I think you can get the idea.

Twiglet also spent her day dumfing, alas not with me because the snow is making travelling difficult, and if you would like to see what she has been busy with then pop over here. I'm really impressed with what she's made and I'm sure you will be too.

For those wanting to know what my embellisher looks like there is a photo of it here.

I can't possibly envisage how you dumf, but you are obviously a star at it! These are positively stunning. The textures and colours are beautiful.
Lucky recipients!

I think you need to put a link to your embellishing blog. Lots of interest out there. Your pics are gorgeous - I will be down to see them in real life when the roads are better.

Well I've spent a good half hour muttering 'dumf dumf' and my card doesn't look nearly as gorgeous..obviously I need a new machine...>!

I love the effect you've achieved here, the cards look wonderful and the flowers so ethereal - clever you!

"Dumfing" is a perfect name for the process.
Your creations are magical!

What a great word. I have had to go on a hunt back through your blog to locate this one where you enlighten the uninitiated. I do so want one of those machines!
