Shell Demo

Now I wonder who she is? Do you think it's raining again?

Today it was new glasses day at SerenTex and some of them are very classy! I thought you would like a sample of them all.

Now down to business. We had a wonderful insight into how Rosemary makes her beautiful shell work. She'd been collecting loads of shells for us all to use.

This one she'd already box framed and brought with her to show. I'm sorry the colours are not so good.

Here are some samples of the work started. Perhaps some of them will be finished by the next time you look in.

The two pieces of work above are Rhiannon's WIP and below a glasses pouch in progress by Joan.

This is a special message from Rosemary to her friends and relatives in Australia to thank them for finding this lovely quilt pattern for her.

August 26th meeting

I have lots of work that should have been posted before, but instead of doing those now I decided to start afresh and follow with the others later.

This work is really delightful and I'm so pleased to have had a small share in it! when we were in Plas Tan y Bwlch in July I spent a little time with my friend Joan showing her how to use PaintShopPro. She came up with a lovely design which inspired her to make this piece. i'm sure I will be able to show you the finished piece of work before long.

Rhiannon is stitching this lovely dainty jug, which we all loved.

Miriam is working on this lovely work, just using left-overs! Not Miriam's usual style, but she manages to give whatever she does a special Miriam flavour. This time by adding some very pale dyes around the edge of the work. Lovely.

You will love this next one. It's Janine's Ton in progress, I think this is her third and they are all wonderful.

Here we see Rosemary and Janine discussing Janine's Ton inspiration and another piece in progress. We had a lovely meeting.
Our next meeting Rosemary is bringing in some shells she picked on Rhos beach and she will show us how she makes her lovely shell stitching and we are all going to have a go. below is a detail of her work.
