Today was the SerenTex meeting and we all had a most enjoyable afternoon. We had a show and tell of all our latest projects and I took loads of photos of 'work in progress'. (Please remember that clicking on the each image will give a large one)
Here is Gwyneth's black, white and orange coming along very nicely. The topic for this project of ours is 'memories' and this one brings back very happy ones to both Gwyneth and myself. I don't think I mentioned it before, but we are cousins and were brought up next door to each other in this little quarrying village and we both think this view is the most beautiful in the world. You can see the three peaks of Snowdon very clearly above the lake. It's a valley amongst the mountains of Snowdonia.
This is Joan's needlework box. This was made last year after a workshop Miriam gave us. Below is a closeup of the lid.
Below is a small sample of Orinuno patchwork, the Chinese patchwork that Gaynor and Rosemary were doing at the last meeting. Today Gaynor showed us all how to make these. This is one of Rosemary's samples and below is a bag she has just finished. Isn't it lovely?
Joan made these flowers after reading about the method in a book that has been published recently. I have had a 'senior moment' I forget it's name, but will Edit this post when I remember. The photo does not do them justice.
