Apprentice at work

My daughter joined me while I was browsing the internet for handmade Christmas decoration ideas for kids the other day, and to my surprise, she was not taken with the "cute" ones, but with the fabric covered styrofoam balls. "Let's make these", she said. Ok, as long as I do the cutting. She agreed and we ran up to the studio to choose some fabric and ribbon. Need I tell you how much I loved seeing her go through my fabrics and ribbons, choosing "just the perfect ones to go together"???
She did need a lot of help finishing them, after all, she is only four, but all the choices were hers and she was so happy and proud of herself, and oh, did we have fun making and photographing  these balls!



Happy preparations, Everyone!

"Κατά μάνα κατά κύρη, κατά γυιο και θυγατέρα..."
This is a greek proverb meaning that "the son and the daughter make what their mother and father do"....
It's not far away the time the apprentice become more skilled from the mentor....

This is so cute! My daughter made a small dolls quilt when she was 5. She picked all the colors at least!
