Sorry I've been so quiet this weekend. I've been working to get the last of my gift sewing finished up. I made the pillows for David's boss' wife (that match the quilt I gave them last year) and I also made a set of 3 nesting fabric bowls with some of the fabric scraps. Then I made another set of 3 nesting bowls for David's co-worker. And then I made 6 bowls for the people in my office. Those will be filled with fruit and candy.

It's late and I have to get up early so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what you ladies have been up to this weekend. Good night.

Wow, you made 12 bowls? So festive. I have to check out making these for next year - I think they are soooo pretty.

Great job with the pillows too - I am a big fan of pillows and have way too many on my bed.

I am sure everyone will love their gifts.

Cheers!

Those bowls are so popular this year. Maybe I'll have to take a class and make them for presents next year. Way to go!

Are you bowled-out yet? I also made them, and gave them stuffed with goodies, and after 13 I am a wee bit burned out. But i imagine in a few weeks, I'll be fine again!
