We had a lovely afternoon of crafts at Ambleside. Some of the residents were helping to knit a blanket. Maire started us off by planning which colours to sew together. Doris, Mary, and Edith all helped by each knitting a square for the blanket. Bill had a lot fun doing some latch hook rug making. It had been some time since he had done it last, but he got right back into the swing of it. Soon we will have a beautiful blanket created by the residents of Ambleside.
We had a wonderful art class at the home today. The residents that took part really enjoyed themselves and showed off their artistic skills.
Jennie and Elaine sat down with a few of the residents to make some felt puppets. The residents who took part really enjoyed it and were very creative.
The Residents at Ambleside spent the afternoon practicing their still life drawings skills. Care assistants, Michaela and Yvonne brought in several different objects for the residents to sketch. Prizes were awarded for the best drawings. The staff were impressed with the level of concentration show by the residents, many of whom who took the contest seriously.
