When you look around
(here in the northern hemisphere)
the colours of autumn are showing more and more.
In our street some trees are still green
but with a splash of reddish brown at the top !

hand dyed wool in my stash
I had to go for this combination
of browns and reds and a bit of brighter orange.

with a touch of orange inside the "windows".
stitched with tiny specs and some wooden and glass beads
on a wine red adjustable string.

zaterdag 9 oktober 2021

day 9

 This day was only for felting:
Having used up all of the little felts I made before
I had to start making new jewel bases.
There are some different ways to make them
but this one is one I don´t use often :
this jewel looks a bit like a book
a book with pages.
So felting only and no stitching,
apart from the tiny pink seed bead
that adorns every Textile Jewel.

The  PINK  RIBBON Textile Jewel for day 9 :

a wet felted square brooch
with six pages added
(and one seed bead)

For a donation of at least

 €15,-

SOLD  !

day 8

 Apart from stitching a jewel
 there was another task today :
going to Rotterdam to fetch my sewing machine.
Sadly enough : not repaired !!!
I think a sophisticated machine (of almost 15 years)
should still be working excellent
. . . . .
but with all these electronic gadgets . . .
when something goes wrong,
a whole series of things can go wrong !
And the one important failing part
isn't made anymore !
GRRRRR

But stitching calms you down
especially in blue !

Here is my PINK  RIBBON Textile Jewel for day 8 :


a wet felted hollow pendant with a fabric bead at the top
and mother-of-pearl droplet at the bottom,
stitched with cotton 
and some sequins and beads
on an adjustable homemade cord.
(9 cm,    3.55")

For a donation of at least

€ 15

SOLD  !

this wonderful pendant can be yours.
Or you can buy it
for a dear friend, sister, mother, daughter
All you have to do is send me an email at
fiberrainbow@gmail.com
(or leave a comment down here)
and we'll arrange the rest

"WATER  IS  LIFE"





Tomorrow there will be a new Textile Jewel

donderdag 7 oktober 2021

day 7

Today I turned around my routine :
stitching first, felting later.
 That way I'm sure to have enough time to take the pictures
even if the light is bad.

Though, like every other day,
stitching needs time.
Time to find the right flow,
time to decide what colours,
time to find that special bead or thread I think I need
somewhere in my (huge) stash.

My PINK  RIBBON  Textile Jewel for day 7 :


A wet felted hollow brooch
in charcoal gray with a hint of brown and a red sparkle inside,
stitched with cotton and wool,
sequins and beads
(6 cm,   2.4")

For a donation of at least

 € 15 

SOLD  !

this distinguished gray jewel can be yours.
It would look fantastic on a winter coat or sweater.
All you need to do is send me an email at
 fiberrainbow@gmail.com

at the end of this post)
Then, everything will be arranged !

no further language needed
everyone knows what it means :

warm feelings,
love.
