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)

    Have a wonderful sunday! Here it will be veery hot!

    1. Hello Martina...thank you for your mention of one of my most fav countries in the world Switzerland.. Do the nuns from Frauenthal Convent - do they still make their famous Krapfen? did I spell it right...gingerbread cookies... I was lucky to spend a couple Christmas there with one of my best friends...
      Nooo I could never forget Martina...even if I tried...I will add you on our list..Glad to have you in our hop...cannot wait to see your bowls..

    2. Wow, I even didn't know that it exists! Just had a look and found it. Looks like a great place! So I don't know about the Krapfen, but the spelling is just right,lol! Thanks so much!

  2. I am having big fun with this blog hop. Many thanks for it. And wow - so many pins, and it is not ending yet... Please, add Czech republic to your list.

    1. Hello Jana...ohhh yes this has been a wonderful hop....and to have so many of you here from special parts of the world for me...welcome..and yes I will add Czech Republic ..oh yes...and think your bowls are up there lol

    2. Oh, thanks a lot! It's a great compliment for me to have them there.

  3. Hubby was asking me this weekend, "If I could go anywhere in the world, where would I go" and I had 4 places and Switzerland was one of them... along with Ireland, the Netherlands, and Australia.

    I have had a busy weekend but just got caught up visiting all of the fabulous bowls! (with the exception of the no shows) Hope they come on and let us see what they created.. :)

    This is a fabulous hop!!!

    1. I sew agree Thearica, even though I went to school in France, and I loved that country, Switzerland is just amazing, their alps, their sense of well being, their gingerbread with very large bowl size cups of coffee...welll that thought warmed up my day...sew glad you are hopping along with me this morning..

  4. ahhh Rosemary, I left the door open for you and the cats lol

  5. Awesome top 2 picks. I am in awe.

    1. Ohhh I will join you Michele...together now...AWEEEEEEEe lol

  6. Anthe awesome day - the ladies went full out and what a hard time it must have been to pick the top - but oh you can't pass up M.E.

    1. Good day Sharon...I am with you M.E. was the first fabric that I made something..still have it..

  7. You know what I have found wrong with this hop? The fact that I have to wait til tomorrow to see more!!! I get up at 4 AM and the first thing I do is check out the blogs! Unfortunately that means I have 24 long hours til I get to see more bowls! I guess I should spread them out more but once I start, I can't stop! Thank you so much for doing these hops. They are sew(as you would say) much fun! Can't wait til tomorrow for more!
