weather, tea cups, pin cushions

Monday is crafting day at Morning Pointe Assisted living.  We will be making tea cup pin cushions for the ladies to keep in their rooms.  I hope to have pictures to share with you.

The craft at the Lantern Alzheimer’s Unit is much more challenging but the residents are so enjoyable.  I’ve found that it’s best to stay simple, colorful, fun with quick assembly when preparing their crafts.

That means there’s lots of work done in advance.  So this is what we have ready.
