day 21

O yes
a lovely day with sunshine
for the postponed "High Tea" birthday party !
The door to the garden was open all day !
Man had made several delicious snacks,
daughter and granddaughter made yummy cupcakes,
and there were some more sweets
of our great local bakery,
and enough tea and coffee to keep everybody HAPPY !

I had taken into account that this would be a busy day
with little or no stitching-time left,
so a few days ago when I was on the machine
for the textile beads (on commission)
I put some of my lovely blue fabrics together for a brooch.
(ha, I nééded that one today !)

The PINK RIBBON Textile Jewel for day 21

Machine stitched fabric brooch
with felt back
(with one tiny pink seed bead ...
you may have noticed : there is one on every Pink Ribbon Jewel )
(4 x 7,5 cm)

This more modern variety of the Textile Jewel
might be what you're looking for.

this can be yours !

day 20

Suddenly Autumn returned.
That was not so bad for the little felted pieces
I made last night and this morning :
they're stuffed with paper
on the heating.

But problems photographing this day's jewel.
Even under the day-light lamp
the purple turns blue ...
(hmmmm ... had to stitch a back to this one,
because I thought the felted circle was a bit thin ...
now I'm pleased with it !)

Here is the PINK  RIBBON Textile Jewel for day 20

Purple wet felted brooch, stitched with cotton and silk
and lots of sequins and all kinds of beads
(5 cm)

A little mysterious with some bling.

For a donation of

€ 10

this brooch can be yours
to adorn a sweater or jacket
with a small touch of colour !
Just send me an email at
fiberrainbow@gmail.com
and we'll arrange the rest.

"THE  COLOUR  PURPLE"

(ahhhhh just noticed that I had three "purple days"
in a row ... coincidence !)

... just finished ...

And here is the next batch
ready to be stuffed with kitchen paper
to get their final shape.


Hope to see you
tomorrow
with my "next"

day 19

Still sunny weather !
(lasting longer than we thought ...
children happy because of the Autumn holidays !)

No wet felted prepared pieces left
so today I took some hand dyed wool felt
from the ("Waldorf") shop
and a little heart shape
(that I also used last year)

The PINK  RIBBON Textile Jewel for day 19

A lilac little felt heart pendant
with thick wet felted dark purple back
stitched with silk and many seed beads
and one bigger wooden bead
(5 cm)
on a long wax cord with slip knots.

Isn't this a lovely present for a dear mom,
daughter, friend ???

"PURPLE  RAIN"


I think this still-going-string Geranium seedling
goes perfectly with today's Jewel

I'm very fond of this one !
And you know what :
it self-seeds very easily !!!
So this one is salvaged in a little pot and will find it's way
to some friend's garden for sure !

See you tomorrow
with a new Textile Jewel !

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

And what I  ALMOST  forgot :

my blogaversary giveaway raffle !!!!!  

(that I promised for Sunday 15)



HAZEL
is the winner !

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

maandag 16 oktober 2017

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

SOLD !

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 !
