Artetc – we’re back!

I had been looking back through some old blog posts and realised how much I missed our Artetc days so after a quick text to Merry we arranged to start back again so on Monday Artetc was revived 🙂 Unfortunately we could only go for a the morning as Wayne had an interview/informal meeting for a job with the NHS at a local hospital, only a temporary contract and part time hours but its work 🙂

It was strange that there were only two of Merry’s girls and Bene (two are at school) so was quieter than we are used to 😉 We got them started on creating their own star sign, preferably mythological, but not necessary 🙂


Merry has recently opened a new online craft shop full of gorgeous fabric, buttons, ribbons, wool and other delights, so it would be rude to come up with a project and not include some of them 😉 The girls made some very cute hanging valentine hearts and pom pom decorations.


Looking forward to the next one now! 🙂

Now I have mastered crocheting granny squares and even managed to teach Poppy and F, I really want to make a blanket and fortunately Merry had a stock of wool for me to choose from 🙂


The girls have worked really well this week, and even completed all the ‘important’ stuff on their tick sheets 🙂 Poppy and F have also cooked and/or baked 2 or 3 times this week, we’ve had macaroni and cheese, spinach and ricotta cannelloni and some chocolate muffins 🙂

Skye is really enjoying Explorers and they have been busy planning an expedition along the Welsh coast for a weekend in the summer! She is very excited 🙂 At Scouts Poppy and F are planning building a robot amongst other things 🙂

Dance is going well, Poppy loves their dance teacher, its a run by a husband and wife and the husband has so far done all the teaching, he’s Italian and very funny apparently 🙂 I think they are currently preparing for a show, the dance moves look quite complex but they seem to be doing ok 🙂 I just hope F is still here when they perform!
