on a green (90 cm) wax cord with slip knots,

A good high backed garden chair
is good for my back, so I'm still going strong.

in every garden.
Trees are a beautiful example
of the ongoing renewal of nature !

day 6

There were a lot of different things
I could have done today.

Apparently there are days when all sorts of things are planned,
lots to choose from,
but of course you can do only one.

I went to Rotterdam,
did some shopping,
visited my "Stitch'n Bitch" friends,
brought my "Arche" shoes to the shop for repair,
and started when I got home
looking for something I couldn't find this morning :
a tiny piece of fabric with some stitching on it,
a little sea horse.

BUT:  nowhere !!!
I turned over everything on or next to the table :
still nothing !
(the little beast went on an adventure ?!?)
(glad I had a spare jewel ...)

A dark red pendant.
nuno felt, fabric, stitching and lots of seed beads,
a big glass bead and hanging

vrijdag 5 oktober 2018

day 5

It was a wonderful warm sunny autumn day,
the door to the garden has been open all day.

I love to make "new" fabric for fabric beads :
snippets of fabric which I tron on "Hobbs"
and then go over it with the machine
with various stitches and colours.

Today I found a little leftover of that
in reds and bright pink,
just right for this day.
Then I made a skeleton leaf
out of felt on "water soluble"

Here is the Pink Ribbon Textile Jewel
for day  5

a LEAF brooch
felt, various fabrics, rayon and silk thread
(9 x 4 cm)
(3.54" x 1.57")

In a  few weeks time you find  leaves like that under some trees,
this one however stays as bright as it is now !

Do you want this bit of Autumn-fire ?
