Don't believe me? Check out these photos...
My friends Julie and Larry have given me a couple of very beautiful bowls that I love very much (even more so because Larry made them.) Here's one of them.
So now that Spring is here, I'm using Julie's Hidden Potential quilt on my dining room table. It's green. OK, maybe it isn't all green, but it's spring-y. And it needed.. okay, I wanted... a new bowl for it, so I went shopping.
But you know me. I'm never satisified with the status quo. I've gotta keep pushing. So I drove myself to another store. You know, that import one.
I walked around and found this. The glove should give you a sense of the scale. This plastic covered wire bowl is about 36" long. They had a smaller one, about 18" long. I held them up and asked the clerk, "OK, if this is the Pappa Bear, and this one is the Baby Bear, do you have a Mama Bear?"
Hmm... I had to think. I don't even have a table cover for this bowl yet. Well, not quite yet, but I know which one it will grace.
*btw, the table covers are not all the same size, and that's intentional. The Fall House top is the largest, designed so it will fit the table with all three extra leaves in place and both end flaps raised. At that size, it can seat twelve. The Black and White Slashed Squares isn't quite as large, but will fit the table with two leaves in place, so it will seat eight to ten. I knew the big bowl would work on the table when it is extended.
