Winter 2019-2020 ARTS AND CRAFTS
WITH GRANDMA MAURINE - Peter
On the second day of his visit I asked him if he would like to learn how to weave. He asked me if weaving was mechanical. I said “Yes”.
I took him over to my floor inkle loom and showed him how to weave on it. He loved the rhythm of the weaving and wove for a while.
I then took him over to my LeClerc Dorothy table loom and taught him how to follow the weaving pattern and weave on this loom. He
was a natural.
The next day I taught him how to do macramé. He enjoyed making square knots and spirals. I was so proud of his ability to learn what
I taught him so quickly.
While he was visiting us we took him to the Nevada State Museum. My husband and his friend took him to a shooting range on another
day and I took him to the top of our development in Sun City Summerlin to see the beautiful scenery from a distance.
Our grandson, Peter, came to visit us in Las Vegas from January 3-8, 2020.
