    Last year I did a set of leaf-printing sessions at the residential home craft classes. These provided a lot more popular than I expected, so I thought another go at printing could be good this year.

    I wanted to do something seasonal for this month’s residential craft class so decorating eggs seemed an obvious choice. Rather than painting them I thought decoupage would make a change. It proved quite popular the last time I did it in the residential homes

    Christmas Cards

    I’ve been really bad at updating this blog for the last 2 months so my task for today is to clear some of the backlog I’m now in my second year running craft classes at the residential care home, and it’s nice to start a tradition of making cards in November followed by decorations in December.

    Wool Haven Classes
