National Woollen Museum - Bunting

We visited Melin Tregwynt - a great selection of beautiful blankets. We went on a Sunday, so the mill wasn't running., but I bought some blanket remnants. 

Then onto The National Woollen Museum. The guide was great - he turned on the machines as we were going around - we were too early for the official tour. What a great museum - I will definately get more fabric!!

The background fabric is a piece that I've had for a while - Melin Tregwnt.  The 4 pieces are Melin Teifi. which is at the Woollen Museum.  I've adapted my Russian doll die for these 'Welsh ladies in waiting'....bunting I think.

It's coming along....

I added seed beads for eyes, zig zag edge and a felt daffodil.

Just need to finish off the binding now.  I've made 10 flags on 3 metres of binding.

It's not a great photo, but here is the bunting hanging on the gym apparatus in school

I'll take a photo outside when the weather is better


  1. This is absolutely darling. I love it! I just found your blog today by finding a link on Pinterest. Both my paternal grandparents are from Wales; my grandpa John Williams was from Blaenau Ffestiniog and my grandma, Alma May Palmer, was from Cardiff. Currently I am researching my family tree, so I thought I'd check out Pinterest. Your blog looks lovely.

  2. Thank you Loretta! I live close to Cardiff and visit regularly and also know someone close with the surname Palmer - small world.
