IN case you are here for the first time today..
WELCOME , the story behind these bowls..
but not before we add our HOPS TODAY...

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..

165 ladies who made these bowls...
will be sharing what their bowls look like..

That I am pretty excited about..
Their BOWLS according to
their selections of fabrics, their appliques
each one will
be totally different...
I have not seen but one completed creation.
I will be as surprised as you...

See what one share of links from an inquiry about paper piecing
 from  Sharon at Vroomans quilts did?
See what one person who knows how 
to make time did ? ( hey, that is me lol)

And here we are....

  1. I enjoy the quilting blog hops so very much seeing everyones creative masterpieces are inspiring. This hop looks grand as well, however, maybe it is just me and faulty internet connections but I have had trouble with this hop seeing all of the stops on the blog hop. :( I keep bumping into dead links or some kind of glitch that will only show one stop no matter which I try to view...it is the same. I am thankful for the postings I have been able to view, there are some great quilters sharing their creativity!!!

    1. First Beulah, thanks for hopping along with us...the dead links is not your doing, we sadly report, some ladies were a no show,. After numerous attempts, they did not show us what they did with the bowls. Everyone loses I am afraid... Hopefully it is made up with the most amazing day of all those who did show and knocked our socks off with their creativity.

  2. Wow, These are today's top picks. I have my cuppa (an PBJ toast) and I am ready to go have a look at amazing creations
    Have a fun day everyone!!

    1. Good Morning Rosemary, I am joined you with my coffee and oats though with a side of rye toast....I enjoyed the view this morning...Wow!

  3. Oh! I am so very excited to be a top pick today. Thank you so very much for this wonderful opportunity. It has been such a great blog hop so far. I cannot wait to see what is comping up next.

    1. Hi Sharon..ahhh sew glad it reflects your days choices too..

  9. Great bowls again today. This is so much fun.

    1. Ahh good to hear that N.M. --see you around again

  10. When I first read about it, this hop did not hold that much appeal for me. I decided to check it out anyway, and boy, am I glad I did. It's wonderful. I can't believe the creativity that so many quilters have. Each day when I look at all the posts I choose my own idea of the top two picks and the honorable mention of the day. It's fun to see whether or not they match your choices. They don't always!

    1. Hello Diann, well I am glad I saw the success of BOWLS....sew you could also enjoy the view...and we may not always match for the top...it is hard especially when days like today..you want to choose them all. They are indeed some lovely candy for the eyes...I want to lick my screen...ohhh but I dont' lol Glad you are here with us Diann...see you again

  11. I am having so much fun with these bowls. I love all your choices for todays top bowls. I didn't expect to see so many different designs so it is great to see them all.

    1. Hello Kathy...ohh and we are only on day 4 can you imagine what and how many other lovely bowls we will see..lol

  12. I am so glad that I joined this blog hop. I have been absolutely loving seeing the new projects every day. Carol, I think you have turned me in to a blog hop junkie. I'm already looking to be in the next one that I can get in to!

    1. Hello Deb, ohhh this is good to hear, we have many many more hops to announce..IN fact I am just designing a new button for our next blog hop ...
      wait and see it will be...ohhh no hints..see you soon...And Carol, if we do not wear her out completely we hope to see her as a cheerleader again, she has done such a great job to date...

    2. I'm not worn out at all and my pom poms are still looking like new and are ready for another hop.

  13. What a wonderful hop! I have really enjoyed seeing the different bowls everyone makes. I am so sad that there have been a few no shows. SINCE halloween is a favorite of mine, I have really enjoyed the 'spooky' ones.

    1. Hello Patty, it has been spectacular hasn't it...we all have bowls..it connects us lol and Yes SAD they did not make it...I think we have heard many stories, of bowls that did not come lol. The good news is we have many who did come ..yeah for them...

  14. Another great day on the hop...the top picks and honorable mention are the same ones I would have picked! Looking forward to seeing more...thanks!!

  15. they just keep getting better and better. what fun.

  16. I can't wait to catch up on all these tomorrow evening! (I am away from home and the connection is so bad I can't download the photos!)Can't wait to see what everyone has come up with!! (I'm with my 104 year old grandmother today on her birthday! That comes first today!)

  17. I really love the "Bowls with Borders" today. They make me want to make some! AND, to do that I found some very easy paper piecing that I am going to work on this week-end.

  18. How great are the bowls today! I'm getting so inspired!

  19. Thanks for the honorable mention....as much as I said 'some choice words' while making the bowls, I do love them...and would do it all over again!!

  20. Am I not seeing the link to where I can buy the bowls challenge?


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