Bowls with Borders Day 2..err...3

So sorry I'm late in posting. I was suppose to have this up yesterday but I had some major issues with my Verizon Wireless Satellite Internet and had to post a little at a time before I could get the post completely up. Anyhow as they say better late than never.

Today is day 2 of the Bowls with Borders blog hop. I'll try not to make this too lengthy since I know you have lots of bowls to see. Earlier this year my husband and I bought a little trailer house on a lake in the lower part of northern Michigan. We use this as our weekend / vacation getaway. I am slowly decorating it in patriotic colors so I sewed my bowls in a patriotic theme of red white and blue.

One of the great things about owning a vacation home is that there is little housework...that is until the kids eat lunch or snacks and dump their dishes in the sink and walk away. So I used some fabric markers and wrote PLEASE WASH YOUR DISHES along the top to remind them that this is MY vacation time too. 



 Here it is hung above the sink. My next project is to make new curtains because these clash terribly. :) 

Please visit the rest of the bloggers today and Enjoy your hopping!

  21. I love your bowls too!! They are so CUTE!! A perfect reminder to the others who eat at your house!!! At my daughters house, I should make her one that says RINSE and ADD to dishwaher, DO NOT stack in sink!!! I also had internet issues and did not post on time either. Still experiencing problems which is why I'm just coming round to hop too. If it takes me a month I'm going to visit every one. Hope you had a great time doing this I know I did!

  24. I love the idea of hanging it above the kitchen sink! Thanks for sharing. Are your curtains going to follow the red trend you set with this wallhanging? That would be sharp.
