Journaling


This was great fun and an excuse to read magazines! Sue told us to take a colourful magazine and tear out the first three images that we liked. We were not supposed to think too much about our choice, but have an open mind. Then had to find 2 or 3 small images and cut these more carefully in detail. We than had to arrange these on the paper laying the first three ripped images as a background, then add the others to make a pleasing arrangement before sticking them down with gluestick.
Then came the next step, we had to find words or phrases that the image suggested to us.









There are a few more images to post, but I will add them an other time.
We each had a peiece of cake to celebrate Gaynor's retirement. She has been a Quilting Tutor for the last 13 years and has decided now was the time to stop to have more time to do her own thing. Enjoy your retirement Gaynor.

A taster


This Memory Keeper was made by Sue after a tutorial given by Rosemary a short time ago. Unfortunately it was during the time I was missing. but I was sent photos by Miriam seen here SerenTex: Christmas Lunch and Memory Keepers.

Below are some teasers for you. They are details from work prepared for our coming Exhibition on the Rainforest and the finished work is a feast for the eyes believe me.

Anne


I'm sorry to have to share some very sad news with you, our friend and SerenTex member Anne sadly passed away 13.03.10. Yesterday we went to a Thanksgiving Service to Celebrate her Life, followed by refreshments at Y Faenol Fawr. One of her last wishes was that we should have a Party to remember happier times together.

She was a very special person and will be sadly missed by all SerenTex members.
