Homemade Noodles

It has turned quite cold already in Ohio. We heat with wood so we already have the furnace running. We heat intirely with wood so my husband cuts a lot of firewood on our property. Thankfully we have 20 acres of woods. My granddaughter came over this morning for another sewing session. Doesn't it make teaching someone so much easier when they are so eager to learn?

In getting the morning started, Vanessa sewed two more nine patch blocks for the quilt she is making. I was thrilled to see that she remember each step that she learned last week. After sewing for an hour or so she had completed the two blocks. She now has four blocks finished. Next we worked on making a delightful fabric covered bulletin board for my sewing room.



Now I think she would like one for her room!!



Next we enjoyed a little lunch of mac 'n cheese...can't go wrong with that!! We decided to make some homemade noodles so she could take them home and prepare dinner for her family. Now this little eight year old girl can sew and she can cook and even clean her mess up!! Gotta love that kind of a girl!


Vanessa is mixing  3 eggs up first. She then added 1 1/2 cups of flour.






Vanessa hand cutting her noodles!




Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Thank you for coming by, Mary Ann, and thank you for the sweet comments on our grandkids! Your little Vanessa is a doll! I have always admired people that sew. I use to years ago but then seemed to lose interest when I started having children and never could find two minutes back to back to do it. I scrolled through some of your posts, beautiful quilts and fabrics, etc.


Take care, Bonnie

Your granddaughter, Vanessa, is just darling, Mary Ann! She is one year older than mine...I sure do LOVE this age!

Your bulletin board turned out great. Yes, DO help her make one for her room & show us step by step, so we can do one too!

fondly,
Rett

p.s. I'm located north east of you, about 1/2 way between Cleveland & Akron.
