I'm "Bowl"ed Over...



Oh, this is fun. It's so easy and goes very quickly. I made this one to hold candy. And then I made another one to hold threads. The rug came out ok, but making one of these of any size is hard. It tries to get all wonky and doesn't want to lay flat when you get it larger than a bowl size.

I can see making lots of these. I would love to make a set of them for all those baking dishes that are so ugly. You know, the glass ones that have no...personality. Wouldn't it look cute with a matching set of them? Ok...I'm obsessed again.
On an icky note, I've had a bug this week. Spend most of the week in the "Ladies" Room. It's been so much fun....NOT! Grrrrr! As my daughter says, That's TMI! Garry and Cindy have gone to church without me. I didn't know if I could make it for two hours, and I hate to share my bug with anyone, especially the older women at church. I'm a hugger. Yep, I'm apt to hug you when I see you, when we part company, and anywhere in between. Can't help it. Don't know where it comes from as my immediate family was not "huggy" when I was growing up. But, my dirty little secret is out now. I'm a HUGGER!
Now it's time to go load a quilt on the frame and get something done. I've got several tops that need to be quilted and I need to accomplish something. Oops, I'll have to finish piecing the blocks that are all over the floor first...then onto the frame......

Oh! I just love them!!!! I have that pattern in a magazine! I even have some of the clothesline that I had bought to make one when I bought the magazine. But it will have to wait a little while.

You could use those bowls for everything! I love them! Oh, do you have your step 2 on the OC finished?? I still need to iron mine!

Great bowls and I love the idea about using them for cookware. I may just have to break down and try them myself.

Ohh I love your bowl! I started mine and love it...just have no motivation to do much right now.

I hope you feel better soon! Bugs are horrible esp. in the spring when you want to enjoy the nice weather and feel good and be outside. Anyways sending you a long distance hug {{{{{HUG}}}}}. Being a hugger isn't a bad thing..it's a great thing.

Love the bowls, I've not seen anything like that before, so I must look out for instructions. Hope you feel better soon.

The bowls are wonderful! A great way to use up some fabrics no longer on your favorite list. Your star struck quilt is beautiful, too. Congrats.

I love your bowls and aren't they just the most fun to make? I've got one started that first was a coaster then it was going to be a bowl and now I was thinking about a small rug. It's interesting to know that they don't want to lay right when they get big. I might just have to change my mind on what mine will be again. I think a trivet would be a good idea too.

Hugging is the best! My DH and I are both huggers and at church it is just expected! People just gotta get the hug fix! I am glad I can be of service!

Great bowls! I am a hugger, too, but only if I know that the people I am hugging are huggers. At the retreats, most of the ladies in sorority will walk by and give a hug when I was ironing or standing and looking at something. Very sweet! I don't get enough hugs!
