Fun Day....and more snow

Yesterday was a holiday for schools, President's Day, and Mia was able to go to another sewing class. This time she made an apron. They learned how to do a nine patch for the upper part and she learned how to make a pocket also. She was so proud of her new apron.

Later in the day hubby and I watched her and her little brother, Oliver, while her mom went to school. She brought her apron over and wanted to cook us dinner. She has cooked at home so I let her do it all by herself. She really amazed me....this is what we had.
She is only 9 1/2 years old...I forget what these grandchildren can do at that age! And here is Oliver, Mia's brother....our youngest grandchild. He is 2 1/2.

A peak at my latest handwork. Can't reveal what this is about yet....will soon.

What a gorgeous apron and so good she has been able to put it to good use. I love it when the boys decide to cook, especially when they can do it on their own

I think you've got a quilter in training there! Woo-HOO!
I couldn't thread a needle at that age...I was just a bookworm without a hobby.
And she cooks too? Oh boy, she's going to make a great mom one day!
