Bowls With Borders--August 21st...Plus...

I interrupt this regularly scheduled....uh...schedule to
show you something I received today
(did you hear the squeal around the world?)

Yes, it is bowls. Christmas bowls just for me as a reminder of this
amazing hop that involved so many wonderful people from around the world.
Madame Samm, busy, busy lady that she is, took some of her precious time to sew this
beautiful stack of bowls for me. I love it! A lot love it!
Thank you, Madame Samm, for making me something so special.
I'll be showing it off again later when I get some borders on it.
Oh yeah, that bottom bowl is a cute little pocket--more to love about it!

 And now, back to the regularly scheduled...

It’s so exciting!
ALL these bowls are just

  1. I like the bowls you got, they are very pretty and you deserve them, for all the work you had with this blog hop.

  4. Wow,I agree,these Christmas bowls are just beautiful!

  5. WOW, Carol that is SOOOOOOO cute!! Madam Samm sure is inventive & generous with her time and resources!! That pocket is over the top and those fabrics so cute. Then on top of that bowl blog hop label!! It's such a good idea. I'll have to ask Madam Samm if I can use her logo to have my friend make one of those for my bowls quilt. She's always printing on fabric (and I've never done it).

  6. Carol - Thank you so much for all your hard work on this blog hop-it's so much fun to visit around the world without leaving our homes. I always chuckle at Google's translations but I am thankful for them as some languages are not so easy to dicepher. Madame Samm is really creative-her holiday bowls are very cute and the pocket leads me to think that one could make a place to display holiday cards with that idea in mind. From California

  7. What a wonderful gift to give you and such fun fabric.


  8. What a neat gift, I am excited to see what you will add to it!
