day 30

 During this whole month
the workshops of the Stitch Club
continued as usual twice a month
(though not for me of course
because there was little time left for that)

But I liked the work of Vinny Stapley
and her "Wild layers" appealed to me
(I love plants and flowers) 
I didn't choose (green) plants, but flowers : poppies.
I have taken bits of time
to continue the first design I did on the background
of transparent layers of thin cloth and lace.
(pinning it all was okay, but then came the stitching . . . !)

What a coincidence that I finally managed to complete
Vinnie's piece and make a poppy on water soluble
for today's Jewel ! 

My PINK  RIBBON  Textile Jewel for day 30 :

a wet felted pendant, wearable on both sides,
with a water-soluble machine stitched poppy.
stitched with cotton floss and some seed beads,
a few wooden beads and a tiny bell
to remember the poppies in "Flanders Fields"
on an adjustable wax cord.
(9 x 6 cm)

For a donation of at least

€ 15,-


this poppy-jewel can be yours,
to give away to someone you love,
or keep it yourself.
You just need to send me an email at
and we'll arrange the rest there is to be done.
(Paypal is possible and easy
but mind the postage !)



So now there is only ONE DAY left for you
to purchase one of the Textile Jewels
of this year !!!

Hope to see you tomorrow
