National Textiles Day
To celebrate National Textiles Day the residents added their own designs to a new blanket. The residents tried to thread the needle independently, sometimes needed a little assistance. They then began to move the needle through the weaves of wool and started up their own design. We saw some initials, some shapes and just a pattern. The residents used great control when moving the needle and thread. The fine motor skills applied to this activity were brilliant. The next step was to decide who could use the blanket first!
