A while back I was trying to think of something to do with the ladies at the Assisted Living (still would like some ideas).
As I mentioned before, they have an auction twice a year.
The auction is next week.
The last auction I donated a panel quilt which went for 270 dollars (paper money they earn through out the year at bingo and various activities).
My mother was so excited and proud and I really wanted to do another one but this time I involved the ladies from the Assisted Living.
I have an iron on transfer book (really out dated as far as pictures but it works).
Kathy, the director of activities, told me to expect maybe 10 people.
I made enough for 15 just in case.
I had about eight show up and a few just sat there.
I think this lady did a fabulous job on the bird house.
This one lady was so sweet, she said she would give it a try but she couldn't see....I came home and tweeked it a bit.
This flower pot my mother did.
I really like this one, I don't know why but I do.
This lady sat by me and was so sweet. I enjoyed talking to her and the other ladies.
We did this yesterday, the auction is Tuesday so I came home and began constructing this quilt because who knows what tomorrow brings and I just gotta get ur done!!
What amazes me, usually when I am rushed things happen, needles break, thread breaks, have to rip something out but things went smoothly......and I am surprised but happy surprised.
So if any of you have any ideas of what activities that might be fun for these ladies, please comment.
My mother is leaving assisted living and is going to reside in a small trailer next to our house but I still want to do something with these ladies.
