Well everything has been going well on the WRAF fund raising front, I've sold 9 brooches, 2 pairs of earrings, and 7 bookmarks making nearly 35 so far.

I've put a few things (bookmarks and keyrings) up for sale on eBay (I'm not worried if they don't sell but it would be nice if they do).

I'm now starting to build up some items for Christmas (I'm made some cute animal bookmarks using some fimo clay charms I found) and am going to try making some tree decorations (both for the WRAF fund and for Christmas fayres).

I will need to also do a stock check at some point (I've got earrings and things all over the house).

Even better news I popped into the local shop which had taken some of my brooches and bookmarks to see if they would sell and this week when I popped in for something, I found out that I had had some sales so everything is looking good. Mousling's Marvels is doing well. Not bad considering I only started out a year and a half ago.

Yay just had my first eBay sale. Mousling's Marvels is officially in business online. One of my little Guardian Angel Keyrings will be winging it's way to it's new owner later today.

WOW 2 online sales in a week ok it only amounts to 3 or 2.50 after deductions but it is a start. At this rate I will need to look at creating an online shop.

Another sale and I am now in profit by about 2 lol.

Sold 2 (golden snitch style) bookmarks. Not bad considering they've only been on sale for about 2 months.

Need to see what else I can offer. However, I've been busy raising money for a WRAF Memorial at the NMA by selling RAF related brooches and stuff. Have managed from those sales to make over 120 which I'm more than happy with.

Another 15 raised at the local shop. Will be keeping 5 for costs and the rest will be going to my charity for the year to bring the total raised for the RAF Benevolent Fund to 265.00 (not all from jewellery sales I must add). I've still got the Christmas fayre to go at Alison's school hopefully that will add a few more pennies to the total.

More Ebay sales and another 5 to go to charity. Now only have 2 bookmarks left on Ebay. It's been a good year and I still have the Christmas fayre to go.

Ashamed to admit I've not made many beady things recently, I've been trying out other stuff. So far the Kumihimo cording is going well and like Mayhem the needlefelt bug has hit. I thought I had better show off some of the things that have appeared in the mousehole.smallsly.jpgpenguinpointsmall.jpgsheepsmall.jpgmousling.jpg

Sorry the pictures are a bit small I need to figure out how to condense them so when the preview is selected it shows the bigger picture. For those who are on my FB list you should be able to see them there. Yes Mayhem I have done a Hufflepuff keyring as well but until I've done Gyffindor and Ravenclaw it is staying under wraps lol.

Going awesome there! Tis addictive isn't it, my poor fingers have had a day or so to recover while I work on a blanket for someone's baby (wool isn't tumble dryer safe, I'm hopeful they'll be ok with that!) but felting starts again soon!

Working on a bigger item currently but I can't do anymore until I get more of a certain colour. That's with a toy stuffing core. I am waiting on some 'badger' (they look like bears to me lol), lion and eagle charms for the HP keyrings.

Now waiting for charms and wool my fingers are getting restless (they are also recovering from been stabbed but I can live with that). Hopefully everything will arrive today but the postie has not yet been

The Ravenclaw (traditional colours as per the books ie blue and bronze (will do one in blue and silver/grey have to keep everyone happy)) and Gryffindor keyrings are almost complete just waiting on those charms.

Well half the charms turned up have had to message supplier for the lions as they were ordered from the same place as the eagles which did arrive. Not impressed!

Wool didn't appear oh well it does say today or tomorrow for arrival.

Itchy fingers a bit of wool and some stabbing and this little toadstool keyring appears. I was originally thinking of seeing if he would sell but have decided to keep him as he is way too cute lol. IMG_3510.jpg

Classing this as a work in progress but can you work out what it is going to be?
dragon1.jpg This one has a pipecleaner frame and is covered in core wool so I can get the shape worked out. Haven't yet decided on the final colour/colours but I'm happy so far. Having to be very careful when stabbing the wool as needles break so easily. It's taken about 4 hours just to get this far. Thinking I may need to remove the head to get it right then refelt it on once I'm happy.
