John Piper

The artist this time is John Piper and this has been one of the most interesting projects we've done in SerenTex. Notice the different approach taken by all of us using the same inspiration and there are still a few pages to add on.

19th March 2016

We were so lucky to have been invited to best wedding reception I have ever attended .Mary and Neal were married exactly 50 years ago, but decided not to have any fuss back then. Just themselves and 2 witnesses, no reception and straight back to work.
They certainly made up for it and even had a wedding cake and a roomful of wonderful friends to celebrate with them.

She was made by Neal and just fantastic.

Mary and Neil cutting the cake 50 years after the event!

And the SerenTex group as usual looking forward to the food.

This has been a long time coming. My apologies to the members of SerenTex and and all our followers.
I will show you some of the work done last year from our swap pages. These are the pages that were made by everyone for my own book. I chose Circles and I've had some beautiful pages. Thanks you everyone.

I apologize again for the quality of these photos and the arrangement. I have obviously forgotten a lot.(I've removed the original photos and had another go)

SerenTex is Back

YES we are still working at our lace inspired pieces. Christmas was a big distraction but nearly everyone is now underway .

You may remember an earlier post when we were all very excited by a box of  antique lace brought in by Jenny.

It was decided that we would each choose our favourite from these lace doilies/tablemats and use it to inspire a piece of work for our next project.

This is a very valuable photo as it records Mary actually working on her felt/lace creation .


Here is Jenny still pondering hers. 

Rosemary and Carol doing serious research.

This is Joan's  finished bowl.

Rhiannon has been inspired to embroider here own mat. 

And of course here's another of Rhiannon's creations.

The sun has got his hat on

Greetings from SerenTex who have been happily enjoying the sunshine.
Rhiannon is well enough at last to come back and taken up her baking duties making this wonderful sunshine cake. I'm told they ate all except his hat! From previous experience I know this is true.
 Thanks to Jenny for taking this photo and to Sue for forwarding it to me.

More of our pier project work.

Jenny brought along a box full of the most wonderful lace doilies that were about to be thrown away by a relative. We were thrilled by the wonderful samples of hand made lace in the box. She was going to share them between us all to start a new project, but Sue suggested they might be too precious and Jenny took them home and try and get an expert opinion on them.

They were studied carefully by us all.

As you can see one of us did bring work to do! This is going to be a knitting needle wrap.

This is only a small representation of the work being prepared for our coming exhibition and we will hopefully have more for you after our next meeting.
Now comes the part we enjoy most, the eating part of the meeting! Rhiannon usually brings the home made goodies to eat with our 'cuppa' and she is away on holiday. When this happens we have a deputy - Ann takes over. It's a difficult act to follow but as usual she keeps the high standard set by Rhiannon. This time she made us a lovely apple and cinnamon cake with Fromage Fraiche and it was delicious. Thanks Ann!
