which originates from the rain-forest in Mexico.


It must love it's place in the bathroom window
:-)

day 18

Today was reserved for house cleaning :
tomorrow we have Man's birthday party.

There were still several gouache paintings
standing near the central heating :
I wanted them to be totally dry before storing them away.
(I don't think I'll take them with me to an art market
when the weather forecast predicts so much rain !)

But, like any other day ...
here is the PINK RIBBON Textile Jewel

A wet felted hollow brooch with some colour and gold inside,
stitched with silk and lots of pearls
and other seed beads

day 12

A day in the rain !

On our last Art Market in September
I met someone whose children
We talked a LOT
and in the end she invited me for the Autumn market there
to do a felting workshop for the children.
(I could also take some of my stuff with me to sell)
I hesitated a bit
but Man said he would go with me
so in the end I thought it was fun to do.

It WAS fun
though ... it rained / drizzled ALL DAY LONG !
Things are drying on the heating right now !

But
market or no market
rain or no rain :
here is my PINK RIBBON Textile Jewel
for day 12

A lilac felt fish brooch with some red mesh,
stitched with cotton floss and rayon
and seed beads and a few sequins
(9 cm)

And THANK YOU so much Swarinde and team

NO TIME for pictures at all
:-) 

Hope to see you tomorrow
