Sadly, I didn't have enough of the pretty red floral to line both. It takes rather a lot of lining fabric for these bowls! These two are the 8" size.
|I had some fun again with quilting; this time the ribbon candy mostly shows at the bottom!|
Of course, Bella got all excited that I was actually making her a bowl...
|She is getting as tired as my family is of me taking photos of everything...|
I also made one more so that I now have a trio of the original bowls.
|6", 9" and 4" all with different linings|
|Inside under the Ott-Lite|
|Lined with more of the sewing themed fabric--eww! See the freaking dead fish fly that wormed its way, pun intended, into this photo? They are still around, not many, but enough already!|
|Setup for sewing with Holoshimmer threads|
We also made a new salad, Spicy Southwestern Salad, Wednesday night. It can be found on Pinch of Yum, here. It is easy to make, healthy and delicious! What's not to love about roasted sweet potatoes, avocado dressing and some spiciness? I love her blog.
|Ha, the Hint of Lime nachos are in another bowl I made several years ago, a fabric one from Linda Johansen's book -- gotta keep the bowls theme, right?|
I also had some totally playing-type sewing in between making these bowls. Kind of a leaders and enders project, and I always wanted to make one of Amanda Jean's (Crazy Mom Quilts) small adorable pincushions, so this one kind of happened with small pieces left over from cutting out my mystery quilt:
|It is about 3 3/4" square! Adorable. Yep, there's some Sulky Holoshimmer and rayon threads on this baby too, and the red strip finished at 1/4" wide! Crazy, but fun.|
I also might have started her Scrap Vortex now too... and I might have started and made some decent progress on, Cynthia's Scrap-a-Palooza quilt #16... Next, or, concurrently, is Bento Box, and a heart quilt I'm making for a dear friend.
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday and with Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Can I Get a Whoop! Whoop! And also with WIPs be Gone at A Quilting Reader's Garden, and with TGIFF at Quilt Matters. So much inspiration and "Oh, look! A squirrel" distractions. :-)
