Bowls with Borders Blog Hop

UPDATE: Awwww, I am so overwhelmed with all your Comments about my one pitiful bowl! Thank you sooo much! I "puddled" up at several of them :-) Beyond your Comments, this day has not gone well. I'm in Kansas and my friend came through surgery well and will come home tomorrow, but when I got back from the hospital, I spent 30 minutes on the porch trying to get the door open - I finally got ahold of her daughter who gave me the "trick" for unlocking the door. Then I discovered my charging cable for my phone got fried on her old-house-electricity. and so the only way to charge my phone is to sit in her truck with the engine running (my car will charge without the engine running). And to rub salt in the wound, I can't get her kitchen range lit to cook some dinner. Don't know whether she's out of fuel, or what? I called her daughter again (she's my "new best friend") and she said it should just light right up, but it doesn't. I think I should just go to bed and hope tomorrow is a better day, BUT the good news is my friend is doing well, so I guess that's what really matters. Thanks again for all your wonderful, uplifting Comments - I appreciate them sooooooooo much!!!!!

I signed up for the Bowls with Borders Blog Hop that I heard about over on Sew WE Quilt (a fabulous blog if you've never been there!). This was a paper-piecing blog hop and the pattern was generously provided by Regina

Now we were charged with creating a minimum of one bowl, but the pattern included several more "layers" of bowls for those who were:

Creative, wonderful, fabulous,
 inventive, talented, imaginative,
 original, inspired, artistic,
 ingenious, innovative, magnificent,
 superb, amazing, fantastic, astonishing,
 and brilliant. 

NONE of which I was, this time around!

So...prepared to be UNDERwhelmed with my one little bowl. In my defense, I was on a mini-vacay-staycay, during which time I had MAJOR problems with my brand-new cell phone that ate up much of my vacay...then I came home for a hot minute, finally got a replacement phone, which ALSO has problems, and had to jet off to Wichita, Kansas to help care for a friend having surgery. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. (I'll be in Kansas for 3 weeks, and I have to tell you, there are some FABULOUS quilt shops here - yay!) 

 So without further adieu (and actually, it doesn't even deserve ANY adieu to begin with!), here is my one, poor, pitiful little bowl.  


 Well, at least it DOES have a border around it, hence the "Bowls with Borders" distinction...

Thank you to all the people who made this blog hop happen :-) And now you can go look at all the OTHER, BETTER bowls that are being posted for August 14 - see below:
