Do you see my bowl? It's in the second row, on the right :D
I love bowls.
Side note: I haven't done a post on some of the handmade awesomeness I've come across recently, so that'll be coming up later this week.
I've been in a new-meets-old kind of mood. It all started with these great crocheted mandalas and granny circles I made but I wanted to do something different than make placemats or hot pads (does any one REALLY use placemats any more...anyone? really? Just wondering).
Anyhow, I've had 6 or so embroidery hoops sitting around that I picked up at a local thrisft shop. I'm not entirely sure why I bought them in the first place but I finally found something awesome to do with them.
I never realized the impact that a bowl could make until I got this in the mail a couple of weeks ago:
Meet "Blankie." Well loved for years, moved around, taken to college and then, one day, showed up in my mail box. An earlier email from the owner said "Here's blankie... Salvageable?"
While I as getting everything ready, I noticed a faint pattern
And anything else you want because the bowls have arrived – and there are, of course, more where they came from. Some greys, a few moody blues and some bright picnic colors will all be arriving in the coming weeks.
Where can you use a crocheted bowl? Anywhere!
