Bowls Without Borders and Giveaway!

Welcome to my turn showing off my
Bowls with Borders!!!




 Finally!  Here are MY bowls!  This was more difficult for me than I thought it would be. 
Trust me not to read the instructions first! 
I think I finally got it by time I finished my last two bowls.  :o(  
The green is more muted so they have more of a vintage look to them. 


I want to call it "Button Parfait"  LOL

 Also, 
in honor of my small accomplishment I am having a giveaway! 

I will be putting more of these pincushions up soon on my sale site at www.memoriesgarden.blogspot.com.  Each one is individually handcrafted with a kaleidoscope quilt block using my own copyrighted pattern.  These cushions are filled with crushed walnut shells for weight and form and have a solid bottom so pins cannot go through to damage furniture.  I scour high and low looking for the perfect vintage or modern buttons or gems that will enhance each one. 

The real treat is that not only is every one beautiful, but no two are exactly alike. Not even I will know what they will look like until the last seam is made. 

If you would like a chance to win
my one-of-a-kind handcrafted pincushion,
just become a follower and leave a comment!

Visit these other sites to see their bowls!
Thanks to Regina Grewe for sharing her pattern with us.  If you would like to purchase a pattern visit her site at http://www.reginagrewe.de

Here is a photo of her bowls!  BEAUTIFUL!




Thanks for looking and have a super day!

    For a faster and reliable result, skin care professionals may recommend these therapies that
    are less-invasive to the body. Also, if you are being treated by a physician for any type of medical condition, it is important to let the office know.
