Beautiful felted bowl...
I was actually lucky enough to receive my second felted bowl recently. I LOVE these things!
I received this wonderful bowl from a friend (Bobbie) in Oregon. Bobbie is sister to the woman that made the other beautiful felted bowl I posted about recently. Such creative talent in that family!
I don't know if you can tell it's a square by these photos, it's so neat. The dimensions are 4 inches by 4 inches and it's 4 inches deep.
Bobbie, her sister Anne, and I have collaborated on a several quilt squares in the past. It was such fun working on a project with them.
Bobbie and Anne along with our friend Sammie have been my traveling pals in the last few years On each of our trips we have shared some wonderful creative time. It's always such a treat to vacation with girlfriends and a bonus when such creativity abounds. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that our 4th musketeer Sammie keeps us supplied with wonderful baked goods and lots of entertaining conversation
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
