Plas Tan y Bwlch

This is just a taster of our weekend at Plas and I'm sure the others will agree with me that Carol was the star of the show this year, so I show her work first. This is only a tiny part of the wonderful work she turned out in such a short time.

Retreat at Plas

This is where we are going to be working this year, the stables block. It has been beautifully converted.

SerenTex Tuesday

When you look at the next few photos you will understand why Chuckie Chicken is going to pick up the tape measure.

Well, well. Just look at this!

And this! Sue brought a Tiramisu cake to share, a BIG one. But fair play to Miriam, she deserves a large piece of that cake, she's just become a Grandmother for the first time. Congratulations to Miriam, Derek and the happy young parents.

Miriam is making this quilt for Isaac her new grandson. There's a lovely story that goes with the designs in this quilt and she will tell Isaac the story one day when he's older. I would like to share it with you too, but I think I'd better have her permission first.

This shows that four heads could be better than one when it comes to designs.

We're all computer literate in this group now as you can see.

Here is Anne's tree design in progress.

This is Rhiannon's weaving in progress. I think it's going to be really special.

This is Gwyneth working on her tree. I love this one.

Mary is busy creating work for her coming exhibition and it is hard going.

Just look at her needle. It got bent as she was pushing it through the fabric!

She had to resort to using pliers to stitch this.

We have two keen quilters in the group, Rosemary and Gaynor. This Bargello work is Rosemary's and is inspired by Global warming, she also had a lovely piece of weaving that I forgot to take. I'm sure Gaynor had some work with her, but I don't seem to have had a photo of it. Sorry Gaynor.

This is Rhiannon who is our birthday Girl today. She is so special she had 2 birthday cakes specially made for her by Miriam and Ann. The flowers she's wearing were a gift from Sue who had made them. She also had loads of handmade birthday cards from us all which I forgot to photgraph.

These are the beautiful tiny books Sue made from the samples she made when Carol demonstrated last month.

Here is today's tutor, Trish giving Gaynor some tips on weaving.

We all started on the project, but did not get very far with all the talking and the Birthday Party going on. Trish is our only weaver at the group and creates some wonderful pieces which you will have seen if you follow SerenTex.
Below are the 2 small samples she brought with her today with a book full of samples and handouts for us all.

This post is rather rushed tonight, so I hope there are not too many mistakes in it.
