Textiel Plus Festival

Just for the readers in the Netherlands ...

Yesterday I brought my felt work
for the exhibition,
but today I had an extra day in Den Bosch

We had a felting demonstration,
and looked around at the festival
at the various stalls with materials ...

I met old and new friends
and saw some awesome textile artwork
in the exhibition !

I had seen pictures of all the work
pictures of textile art work
do justice to the real thing !!!

(ahhhhh ... looked a lot ...
but forgot to take pictures of the ones I liked best)

If you live in Holland :

go visit the festival !!!

(I'll be there again on Saturday)

My felted work :

"birth of colours"

"The Moon Swan looked at the earth that was dull and gray.
She spread her wings and hovered through the starry night to the earth.
There she laid an egg, cold as ice.
She cherished the egg every night,
and every morning, the sun kissed it.
Until ...
one morning ...
the colours were born !"

the end result ... !

After the very busy
PINK RIBBON October month

it gets always quiet
a bit like a collapsed souffle
but a task well done too.

(that last purple one went to the US
and the little leaf landed on my own winter coat
the very last will go to Germany)

And the best part of it all is the end result

€ 575

no ...

€ 600
(because of an extra donation !)

I'm very pleased I can send the money
so there can be more research
for new medication
and aftercare
for breast cancer patients

I did my part,
making a Textile Jewel every day
you out there
did the rest by donating
so generously

So  THANK  YOU  so much :

Dorie, Dee, Karen
Titia, Rina, Silke, Morag
Dawn, Simone, Jolan, Sue 
Baukje, Twink
Elke, Joke, Madelon
Leonie, Lee, Caroline

You might count the names and not come to 31 jewels
but there were even 7 extra jewels made ...
some people just couldn't stop buying !

two left ?

I think it must be a mistake :
two of the PINK RIBBON Textile Jewels are left ...

That's probably because
one thinks that all the older ones
were already gone ...

Please look at them one more time ...
another change to get one of the Jewels
for a donation for





These two
deserve to be on someone's coat or dress too

Tomorrow some of the last of the envelopes will be in the mail.
I hope all the others ones have arrived safely
at their destination
(or are still on their way)

And soon I will be able to tell
how much money I can send to PINK  RIBBON !
