    Magnetic photo frames

    I wanted to introduce something new to the residential care home craft classes this month and my original plan was to decorate fridge magnets. However once I began to investigate what was available it became apparent that the magnets would be too small for some of the residents.

    Cards for home

    Sometimes crafting for classes means I don’t get time to craft for myself. I thought this year would be the same but I sat down early in December and decided to do a batch of Christmas cards

    This is the third time I’ve brought paper flowers into the residential craft classes, the first time we used crepe paper and the second we made tropical flowers.

    September 2019

    Apart from my classes it’s been fairly quiet month on the crafting side. Been finishing off unpacking and most of remaining my free time has been spent in the garden.

    Autumn Wreaths

    My original plan for this month’s project was to make wreaths using fallen leaves. It appears I was premature in my programming as there are hardly any fallen leaves about. Looking back I see we did the leaf printing in October last year.

    Picture Frames

    Our second decoupage class at the residential care homes this year. It’s a popular activity with the residents so I like to incorporate it regularly.

    Circular weaving

    A second month of introducing a new technique to the residential care home classes. I like to bring some variety into my sessions there so the the residents get to use different colours and textures and weaving seemed an excellent opportunity to do so.
