SerenTex is Back

YES we are still working at our lace inspired pieces. Christmas was a big distraction but nearly everyone is now underway .


You may remember an earlier post when we were all very excited by a box of  antique lace brought in by Jenny.


It was decided that we would each choose our favourite from these lace doilies/tablemats and use it to inspire a piece of work for our next project.



This is a very valuable photo as it records Mary actually working on her felt/lace creation .



 

Here is Jenny still pondering hers. 



Rosemary and Carol doing serious research.





This is Joan's  finished bowl.



Rhiannon has been inspired to embroider here own mat. 



And of course here's another of Rhiannon's creations.

The sun has got his hat on

Greetings from SerenTex who have been happily enjoying the sunshine.
Rhiannon is well enough at last to come back and taken up her baking duties making this wonderful sunshine cake. I'm told they ate all except his hat! From previous experience I know this is true.
 Thanks to Jenny for taking this photo and to Sue for forwarding it to me.

More of our pier project work.

Jenny brought along a box full of the most wonderful lace doilies that were about to be thrown away by a relative. We were thrilled by the wonderful samples of hand made lace in the box. She was going to share them between us all to start a new project, but Sue suggested they might be too precious and Jenny took them home and try and get an expert opinion on them.



They were studied carefully by us all.



As you can see one of us did bring work to do! This is going to be a knitting needle wrap.









This is only a small representation of the work being prepared for our coming exhibition and we will hopefully have more for you after our next meeting.
Now comes the part we enjoy most, the eating part of the meeting! Rhiannon usually brings the home made goodies to eat with our 'cuppa' and she is away on holiday. When this happens we have a deputy - Ann takes over. It's a difficult act to follow but as usual she keeps the high standard set by Rhiannon. This time she made us a lovely apple and cinnamon cake with Fromage Fraiche and it was delicious. Thanks Ann!

Our project on Colwyn Bay Victoria Pier

We had a happy meeting as usual.









And this was the serious part of the meeting!











There were far too many photos for one post, so there are more to follow in the next few days.

The Birthday Party at Plas Maenan


This a very poor photo of the birthday girl Janine.


And here they all are chatting away as if they hadn't seen each other for weeks, actually we all met yesterday :)


I don't know who suggested coming here today to celebrate Janine's birthday, but I do know Sue arranged it all and she is always thinking of exciting things for us all to do as well. Thanks Sue. We rarely thank you and take you very much for granted.

Colwyn Bay Pier

This cake was mouth melting. Rhiannon spoils us!
This is also Rhiannon's work.


These are pages from Sue's Pier Journal.

Mary created this piece to show how we are all killing our sea birds.
Gaynor was busy with her quilting.

Bwyd Cymru Bodnant


We had a lovely lunch together doing what we enjoy best at SerenTex - talking! We all met at Bwyd Cymru Bodnant which was opened by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall recently.
