But first a POLL for the BOWL, Bowls with Borders Blog Hop...update



 ( this just a POLL, would ANYONE be interested?)

A paper piecing thought- was planted
and bowls is all I could see...
I thought "what is happening to me?"

I kept cutting and sewing and stacking up high
well the colours and fabrics just made me sigh..
I can't stop now, I am on a roll
perhaps you will join me for a poll..

Should we do a blog hop, each do 3 
will you follow along with me?
Will your stack be red and black
or multiple colours will that be a fact.

Will they be floral or abstract designs
will you be thinking this is a sign...

Will you please join me in the fun,
a bowl party is not fun with just one....

YOU start with 4 and then add 3 
and before you know it
you have 33....

( or more) 



as you can see, it's hard to stop
I just kept cutting and piecing
without a thought...


How large will it be, 
will everyone see,
I have lost my mind
is this a crime?

                

It's time for lunch I must run
but I will be back with more bowls
this is just too much fun...


     

Okay day 2 and yes it is true..
I kept sewing and stacking
and the bowls just grew...


Will you be joining me and all the CREW...?
I sure hope- yes I do!

written by me
( hate to admit that lol)

My DH shared with me this morning..
he thinks I am reading far too many Dr Seuss
to the grandkids...lol


I heard from the lady who made
the pattern, she is going
to provide the pieces to make 
the bowls for FREE!
Please let me know who would 
like to make a stack of bowls..
If there is enough of you..
we can have a quick blog hop
to see them all....
It is a very easy pattern!
You will have 6 weeks to complete
your stacking bowls..
Who is IN?


sew we will scrap a round robin
( logistics and all and just have a
blog hop say mid August....)
Yes I am in !


I will be doing another..
this one I am going to complete
and show you...and it is already spoken for!


Will need a volunteer to manage
this blog hop?
I will help of course..
New button on your blog,
new personal name tag...
and lot's of traffic...
drop me a line
madamesamm@me.com
with subject line..
I WiLL!



more pics here of bowl with borders...
that will be the name...
BOWLS with BORDERS
BLOG HOP.

    1. Hi Marjorie..this is just a poll....to see if anyone was interested...was thinking a couple weeks...or maybe some thought, push it forward to the fall...Pippa's group of 4...well you would do 3 bowls. sew them together, send it to someone, they would add their 3, you would get someone's first bowls you would add 3 ..4 times in total..YOu would be working on 4 diff't peoples bowls...
      YOu would then get yours back, with 4 stacks of 3 bowls and with your initial 4 bowls...sew you would have 16 bowls in height...sound right > lol

      Delete
  5. Dr. Seuss...LOL! Yes, maybe your DH is right, but it made it so fun to read about your bowl making. I'd like to join in with a small group--wouldn't want to bite off more than I can sew. :O)
