Bowls With Borders--August 27th AND......

Just one more set of bowls from me......
 
I finished the bowl creation Madame Samm gave me
as a reminder of how fun and special this hop has been,
so...here it is.......
Her masterpiece of bowls with a little pocket
(that will be filled with candy canes at Christmas)
attached nicely to a section I made with
slots for Christmas cards. I added a
paper pieced snowman found at Craftsy
by Piece By Number, too.
Thank you again, Madame Samm, for such a special gift!
 
 
 
Check out these bowls:

August 27th
Don't forget to hop over to Sew We Quilt to visit Madame Samm
and see her top picks of the day.

All the blocks will be posted on
Madame Samm's Pinterest page, too.

What a way to remember this bloghop! Tomorrow being the last day is almost to much *blow nose*, I so enjoyed this hop and I never hopped so much in my bloglive, what a great things I saw, read and I was amazed by all the different turn outs of the pattern. One more day....but I'll be back hopping with you all and others. I already regret that I didn't join the "Leafs me happy", that'll learn me never to think twice but just hop on the ride when it is offered.

What a wonderful tribute to you from Madame Samm. Your additions to it are fantastic, and you deserve a big hand. I had just discovered blog hops and this Bowls with Borders has been amazing. Had to hop over to Regina's to buy the pattern.
