day 17 (and something I almost forgot)

Today Man and big grandson
went ice skating,
so I was home alone to do my stitching.
First I finished some new textile beads
(made on commission)
for my friend (felt teacher) Corinna Nitschmann
and put them in an envelope
ready to bring them to the post office.
Then I decided what to do with the green felted circle ...
So here it is  :

the PINK  RIBBON  Textile Jewel for day  17

A wet felted circle pendant,
a textile bead, some wooden beads and seed beads
and a (water soluble) star
hanging on a long wax cord with slip knots.
(6 x 11 cm)

"Green" stretching its tiny fingers
to all sides : nature will continue !

For a donation of

€ 10

SOLD  !

 this pendant can be yours,
to wear or give away as a present.
A token of fertility of nature !
All you need to do is send me an email at
fiberrainbow@gmail.com

All the money will go to the Pink Ribbon Fund !

And what I  ALMOST  forgot :

my blogaversary giveaway raffle !!!!!  

(that I promised for Sunday 15)

The little Summer Solstice piece will come flying to the US, Hazel !

And some thing really weird I saw this morning in the garden !
Apparently our Ginkgo tree is a good place
to sleep through the night :

.........
you might be able to find the nine that I "caught" here ...
but in fact there were fourteen !!!

Hope to see you tomorrow
for the next Pink Ribbon jewel

day 16

Today was the warmest Autumn day
in years !!!
But it is still Autumn
these warm days won't last very long,
probably over the day after tomorrow,
so I thought it would be appropriate to make another
Autumn leaf.

And YES
I really make a new jewel every day
I don't have a box from which I can simply take one !!!
I do make the wet felted pieces in advance :
one or two (perhaps three, once in a blue moon)
because they need to be dry
before I can continue working on them !
(though today's piece was nearly dry ...)


The PINK RIBBON Textile Jewel for day 16

A wet felted diamond shape brooch (stitched with silk)
is a water soluble skeleton leaf
(7 x 5,5 cm)

This vibrant coloured leaf can be yours
It can brighten up a dull day when you wear it !


For a donation of

€ 10

it can be yours.
It would make a wonderful present
for a dear person !
You just need to send me an email at
fiberrainbow@gmail.com
and we'll arrange everything.

All the money goes to the Pink Ribbon Fund !


"AUTUMN LEAF"



Hope to see you tomorrow
with the next Textile Jewel !

day 12

For today's jewel
I took some of the prepared
fabric-sandwich that I made with the machine.
To make it more sturdy
I took an "old" bag (that never really
became a bag, because I didn't like the shape of it)
and cut out a piece for the back of this pendant :
lovely thick felt !

The  PINK  RIBBON  Textile Jewel for day 12 :

A vibrant red and pink pendant,
machine stitched front and wet felted back,
textile bead, cotton tassel and wooden bead,
(9 x 16 cm)
on a long wax cord with two slip knots.

A bold statement on a "small black dress"

For a donation of

€ 10

this pendant can be yours !
You just need to send me an email at
fiberrainbow@gmail.com
and we'll sort out the rest.
(bank, Pay-Pal etc. it can be sent everywhere !)

because all the money goes to the Pink Ribbon Fund !

day 11

I made a little felt
with a conical shape in turquoise blues and green.
(a hollow form that I cut at the end)
Then I stitched one side together
before drying
(that was some days ago)
Today I gathered lots of different seed beads
in the same colours and started stitching.


Here is my PINK RIBBON Textile Jewel for day 11

Horn shaped felted brooch
with a curly tail
and filled with lots of different beads and sequins
(7,5 x 5,5 cm)

This little sea green "horn of plenty"
is a reminder of the sea
(  which is also filled with plenty, if we manage
to keep (make) it clean (again) )
