Spring Craft Class at Church

                                  One of our church members who does repairs and upkeep of the building and grounds ,  we call him Mr. Bob made this wall board for us ! I came up with the idea to make a spring display on it , I found some paper strips that looked like grass in one of the cupboards so I used that for the bottom and added some green tissue paper to it ,then asked all the children to make as many flowers as they wanted to in 45 mins.
      My daughter-in -law helps me a lot so we had some strips and leaves cut ot and they made the flowers out of cupcake liners , round construction paper and long strips to make loops ,I let them use pompoms, buttons and sticky flowers for the center of the flower to make them with.

                                               Top 3 are close ups of their work
 The following Sunday evening I had all the smaller children  come in and make some too ,

It's been Awhile , I am back !

Christmas Last year we made lots of gifts ,but afterwards we decided to make some quilts for Charity - A women's and Children Abuse Center
The top one is a quilt Mom made while waiting for us girls to get to her house in Jan. so we made a total of 36 but only 14 were finished while we was there, then Mom finished the handwork on the ones that were ready , then she sewed up about 5 or 6 that we had cut . 
These are just a few that we made  

                                         Another one of Mom's

                          The pink a red is hearts made by sister.

                     A farm one for a little boy that I made

                   The next 3 are more of Mom's

          A book for boys about Fire truck, police and etc

               A book about a train
     Another book about the 3 Little Pigs
