The story behind the bowls..
( you will probably know this by heart by the end of 28 days_

It all started with making a gift for a sweet friend
and sharing that gift on my other blog ( with my final posting)
and many asking me where it came from.

Each time I shared another stack, another flood of
emails came in..."where did you get that?"

Flash to today...a blog hop came about..

will be sharing what their bowls look like..

That I am pretty excited about..
Their BOWLS according to
their selections of fabrics, their appliques

      mdm samm

      Once still many thanks for your nice support. There was a lot of fun to be a part of the blog hop.

    2. Silvia, Your email to me this morning was so sweet and now I see you here, too. Love it! Thank YOU for playing along.

  2. Yeah! My post is up tomorrow! I raring to go! Its been fun!

    1. Ohh Colleen, I just love this kind of spirit...yeahhhh you are on tomorrow..

  3. Hi. Madame Samm...I was wondering if you could share how someone can become part of a blog hop. Thanks, Pam

    1. Hello Pamela...psssst come back tomorrow in the afternoon...say about 4 pm...shhhhh lol

    2. oh btw you are a no-reply blogger. sew I do hope you see this..

    3. I did...thank you for the hint.

  4. I am loving the international flavor of this hop! Fabrics, colors, inspiration, and diversity are just amazing. Yes, the kitty was my favorite today.

    1. Hello Sharon, it really is amazing isn't it? All these women from around the world, and here are engaging together with bowls...ok, and some kitties, birds, mice, what other critters did we have lol. I am loving it...and glad you are with us to see it too..

  5. Another fun day visiting all the wonderful blogs with bowls! It has been so much fun to see all the different ways people have used this great pattern!

    1. Hello Connie...and how are you this beautiful morning lol it will go down as one of those hops we will not forget ...lol

  6. Madame Samme, you picked my all time favorites! You hit it on the nose....I too love the international flare on the hop. It makes for a wonderful day and do some more sewing. Judith, Texas

    1. Hello Judith....I will be joining in the sewing...I am trying to get something done for tomorrow at 4 pm lol

  7. There are some beautiful bowls today! (I am becoming very frustrated with the verification on some when trying to leave a comment. I had to try more than 6 times on one and 4times on another before I got it right! Couldn't be my eyes, could it?) :-)
    Wow, everyone did such a good job today!

    1. Maybe I AM a robot and I just don't know it!!!!

    2. And yes Linda...I think we may have to say after 2 tries we will just abort , and I will remind them of that, when we begin the next blog hop...
      The cheerleaders will do friendly reminders...it is very frustrating ...I am with you..7 x on just one of them ..lol. and NO it is not just you who is frustrated lol

    3. Rosemary B here: yes... I greatly dislike the word verification thing. It is nearly impossible to figure out squished up letters and fuzzy numbers.

      and why have word verification AND comments moderation together?
      I mean that is like... never mind.

  8. This is such a great blog hop!! but the word verification is driving me crazy!!!

    1. I know Gill I know...I try to let them all know to just turn it off for one day...they all would get sew many more comments...I tried 7 x on one of them this morning...lol

    2. I'll add a note to tomorrow's post, too. I hate it when it takes so many tries.

  9. Wonderful picks! Mornings are so fun with all the beautiful bowls. PS. I was so not awake when I first looked at your blog as I thought I'd made a mistake and gone to MY blog when I read the top part of your post. LOL!

    1. Aren't I quick Carol, thanks for reminding me to remind everyone else..you said it sew well....well you were my compliments this morning ..thank you ...

  10. I can't wait each day to see all of the great ideas. This has been such a fun hop. ;-} Mary

    1. Well darn it Mary, why did I not know that...well now I won't forget....Mary, I am with you..I get up with coffee in hand, still in my pj's and come to see what is new...lol

  11. RosemaryB here:
    Great picks for today. They were all really good, but these three are very creative.
    I have to cut my visiting time in half because i went out this morning to pick up a Singer 237 that looks like it was used like three times... but it needs some "dusting". Hey I got it for free and a sewing table too... all very very 60's wheeeeee

    Have a super wonderful afternoon.

    1. Oh Wow Rosemary, that sounds like a good excuse to me..and it is free, and bonus from the 60's...whoopee...lol
      see you soon...

  12. great picks. I do like the bird in the bowl and the upside bowls are a cute idea too.

  13. I had to visit this morning to these awesome quilters... had to take my FIL back to the eye doctor.

    Sew much incredible eye candy!!!

  14. I'm a bit behind on hopping but hopefully will get all caught up soon. I don't want to miss one terrific stop along the way.

    BTW I don't know if others are having the same problem, but when I click on some of your posts in Google Reader to go directly to it, like your most recent one for today, all I get is a ton of type, letters and symbols. I've never seen this happen before but it is only on your blog lately. Don't know what is up but perhaps it might be worth investigating, especially if others are having the same problems.

    Happy Friday to all!

  15. I love reading the bowl posts each day. I am from a country not mentioned yet, Ireland. Hope this helps.

  16. Jeanneke's quilt is a beauty, I'm so happy you picked it as a winner, her work is great and she herself is soooo sweet.
    Great winners/honourable mention today, again I'm so happy I did not have to pick these with you, I am overwhelmed by the lovely quilts/mugrugs/wallhangings etc etc there are made! And it goes on and on! What a treat!


You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
