Art etc

After some reading, dance practice and Mathletics we jumped in the car to spend the day with Merry and Co. The girls had a good play together whilst Merry and I chatted and prepared craft.

I cut out tessellation tiles that they decorated after being shown examples of how they may have been used in Victorian times.

Also read the blurb from the fabulous Usbourne Art Treasury book. Merry continued to roll out endless sheets of fimo in between checking up on her ‘pocket frogs’! (Club Penguin for Mummies) 😀

After lunch, Merry gave a swift fimo masterclass showing how a millefiori and caning technique. We then all made some rather fantabulous photo holders which the girls are going to attempt to sell on Etsy [insert link here when I have it from Merry :)]

Unfortunately I didn’t managed to photograph a complete set so I am hoping Merry has 🙂

I took Skye, Fran and Josie dancing and left Merry finishing off photo holders with the others, including Poppy who seems more than happy to stay there without me now 🙂 Returned an hour later and the dancing girls carried on with their photo holders and we left them all baking in the oven (the fimo not the girls ;)). Arrived home, girls helped with unloading dishwasher etc, Skye did some more dance practice for her forthcoming Jazz and Musical Theatre exams.

Had a chippery tea which Wayne picked up on his way home, shortly after which the girls went to bed reading a book about caring for a new pet! Wayne and I watched what is probably one of the worst films I have seen for a long time, ‘2012’ – terribly ‘Hollywood cheese’! I finally finished sewing all the letters for the Christmas garland I am making for a friend – now i just need to figure out the best way to hang it 🙂
