Core Competency Self Assessment

Arts and Crafts Floral Embroidery

Critical and Reflective Thinking Skills

I used both critical and reflective thinking skills when making floral embroidery for Arts and Crafts. I was assigned a personal textiles project and was given a lot of creative freedom to make whatever I want. I decided to embroider because I had minimal experience and it would have a pretty, colourful outcome and would be fun to create. I can generate new ideas and build on other peoples ideas by brainstorming and asking for help from my peers with difficult decisions. The first time I ever tried to embroider was about a year ago and and used that to reflect on problems I encountered to generate new ideas. I really enjoyed this project and am really happy with the outcome I was able to produce.

My Most Memorable Food Experience:

Easter Dinner 2020

My most memorable food experience or memory is making Easter dinner this year. It is my most memorable experience because it was so different and weird for my family and I. Easter was in the middle of quarantine so we could not be with the rest of our family. Instead of doing nothing for Easter, my parents and I made a nice dinner. We would normally go to my grandparent’s house and my grandma would make the dinner, so this was actually really fun for us to do it ourselves. We made turkey, brussels sprouts, stuffing, gravy, veggie casserole and mashed potatoes. I was in charge of the mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts but helped out with everything. Not only did everything look really good, but it smelled and tasted even better.
