Gaynor’s quilted bag


I found a better photo of Gaynor’s bag within a bag.

A perfect afternoon


This is Janine’s lovely new studio. she has waited a long time for this because of the ‘Bats’. Yes, Bats! She wanted to create a studio from her barn, but because of the rare breed of bats that lived in the barn it took a long time to solve the problem and to be granted permission for the conversion. Now they have a home in part of the barn and Janine has her studio in the rest. It’s a perfect place for her to create her lovely quilts.


Can’t you tell Rhiannon used to be a teacher? (smile) This is a small part of Janine’s studio.


Fabrics dyed by Janine, we all wanted them, but these will be sold at the Helfa Gelf, the Welsh version of the Open Studios which she is having in the new studio Friday 10th Sat 11th, Fri 17th Sat 18th, Fri 24th Sat 25th. Open from 11am – 5pm except Friday 10th which is open until 9pm..

I missed the last two sessions of SerenTex when Janine gave them a workshop making lovely book-covers like the one Rosemary finished on the left. The little purse on the right was also made by Rosemary using the woven piece she made after Trish’s workshop.


Rosemary also made this bag using a pattern designed by Gwenfai Rees Griffiths, the famous Welsh quilter.


This lovely quilted bag with the chocolate theme was made by Gaynor, the inside is rather special as there is a bag inside the bag, but it was too difficult to try and photograph it.


Wherever you find SerenTex meetings you will find food. So here is my plate of fresh wholemeal scones with jam and clotted cream. Mmmmm!
