Here are some photos of another great day at SerenTex. We all loved one of Carol’s little books and she was asked to give us a workshop on making it. she decided to demonstrate the first part of the workshop and then we will all get our papers ready for part 2 at home. the difficulty we have is carrying all the wet stuff home. there are also photos of work in progress for the Colwyn Bay pier project.
As you can see we are colour co-ordinated once more. You may wonder about those two little faces at the back? Well, they were not fully co-ordinated BTW this was not prearranged.
Joan’s finished work. I sometimes put these images up the wrong way and get told off, but I think it just goes to prove what good designs they all are and will work well whichever way you show them.
Sue’s finished work.
I won’t name the unfinished pieces, but here they are, some of them in the process of being criticised – it is sometimes even suggested that the work be cut up and rearranged!

This might become a very long post so I decided to split it up. I don’t think I need write a lot as the photos speak for themselves. Let’s just say it was a fun afternoon with a show, tell and suggestions as some members showed their work in progress for the Colwyn Bay Pier project.
We all made one Christmas each and then had a lucky dip, so had one each to take home.
We all brought some nibbles!

We had a wonderful afternoon workshop with Carol (McFee) co-writer of Stitching the Textured Surface.
Carol made it all look so simple as we were shown various ways of using Cooking Foil to make fantastic, stitchable textile, using PVA, various paints and rust powder with white spirit. There are not many photos as the photographer was far too busy taking it all in and getting some foil decorated to take home.

There were only six of us present for one reason or another. I know Sue is poorly so I will wish her a speedy recovery, it’s not the same without her. As you can see Trish is sketching ideas for the Colwyn Bay pier project.
Rhiannon’s work is coming along well and looks fantastic. She also did some sketching and added a few stitches to her work.
Gaynor is also progressing well and is stitching her sky. I don’t think you can the see the stitching very well in this image unfortunately.
This is Joan’s sketchbook and it’s lovely. She made it from ideas in Angie Hughes’ book.
Ann took out her sewing machine, then packed it back again to take home and I don’t think she used it! As for me, I took my iPad with me. Took some photos and talked the rest of the time and felt really inspired and cheerful going home, so all in all a good meeting.
