Quoth the Raven Quest 13

Well 13 may be unlucky for some but for me it is very lucky, as this is my first quest as a Minion of the Master at Quoth the Raven! I am so very lucky to get this opportunity to work with such wonderful and talented ladies :D

So on to the Quest!


"SOME WORDS WITH A MUMMY" .
Perchance a small snippet to whet thine appetite.....

Quote:          "Come to me, by all means, my dear good friend, as soon as you receive this. Come and help us to rejoice. At last, by long persevering diplomacy, I have gained the assent of the Directors of the City Museum, to my examination of the Mummy --- you know the one I mean. I have permission to unswathe it and open it, if desirable. A few friends only will be present -- you, of course. The Mummy is now at my house, and we shall begin to unroll it at eleven tonight".

How now ? Doth thy mind not yearn to learn more of the encounter ? Art thou not eager to discover that which ensued.? The tale can be read in it's entirety HERE.

This is my offering for this week


This mummy's arm started it's life as a paper mache arm sitting on a shelf in hobby craft, it sort of jumped into my basket as I walked past and it would have been rude of me not to buy it! 

To start with I painted the base of it black then I got some white crepe paper, sprayed it with water and dropped onto it some drops of antique linen distress ink from a re inker. I then heated it with a hot gun to dry it which made it crinkle and almost burned on the edges which makes it look old and dirty. I cut this into strips and bandaged up the arm until I was happy with it.

Now you might be looking at this and thinking the photo is on it's side...well it's not this hand has a purpose!


Yes my friends it is a key holder. 

I do hope you will come and share your creations with us at Quoth the Raven
