Bowl Factory Closing

Yes, it's time to close the bowl factory. All the bowls have been made for this year and the hard workers deserve a much needed holiday break. This worker especially. Just look at the good job she does keeping nice tension on the clothesline. I think she deserves a holiday bonus.


Here's the final bowl line-up. I made two of each color except for the green.


I made two extra green bowls from the leftovers. These were smaller than the one shown above. I even got creative and tried adding handles.


And then, with some of the leftover strips and clothesline, I made four coasters.


It's time to move on to other projects and tasks. Happy weekend!

  5. I was expecting your helper to be in the bowl curled up. That is what mine would have been wanting to do.

    Love the colorful bowls and it has made me pledge to make more homemade items for next years Christmas and one of these bowls will be one of them. or two or three. :)

    Looks like everyone you know will be bowled over this year!(sorry, I can't help myself!)

  8. Your bowls are wonderful! And your assistant looks like a great help. I wonder why I can't get my dogs to help me out!?

  12. The bowls are beautiful and the coasters phenomenal!
    If that were me, the leftovers would go into a bag, never to be seen again. You are an incredible worker, Terri! (not to mention your little helper!)

  13. Gorgeous bowls. If I could absorb one talent from someone, I'd choose your color sense. I wanted to thank you so much for the inspiration that you give us each day, and for sharing your techniques, knowledge and encouragement so generously. Any day that you post something you've done is a day I smile for sure. Thank you. And have a wonderful holiday.

  14. Totally love your bowls and really dig the multicolored coasters. I need to get busy and learn your technique. Very creative and pretty. The handles on the one bowl appear to have worked just great.

    Merry Christmas, sweetie !

  16. Can you actually do a bowl a day? I found some strips of fabric cut for another project (can't remember what that was!) and, after being inspired by your bowls, I decided to try one. I thought possibly I could make several for gifts. That was a month ago and it is now in the UFO box. I guess I need a lot of practice. Yours are so beautiful I'm determined to keep trying.
