Did you hear the roar of the crowds as I tied the final knot in this project? I did!!! It was one I had planned on having finished in November but various delays associated with our Coffee and Crafts and the holidays got in the way. Unfortunately there has been another obstacle. I have developed arthritis in both of my thumbs. The middle joints aren't so affected as the bottom one with the pain running to the base of the hand. I can only work on the bowl a short time before I have to put it aside and then my hands hurt for a good while. There were times I doubted that it would be finished but because I knew exactly where I want to use it and it will coordinate with the Blogging Friendship Quilt, it had to be done!
The project was chosen by my Coffee and Crafts group, inspired by this find on Pinterest.
Fellow crafter, Mary made hers in the fall using the same colors as the original. Hers is perfect!

and the final stitch!!!
I really love the bowl and the whole concept. In some ways it was super easy and in others it was a bit challenging for me. It's a tad off but that makes it a good fit here.
This week I'll be doing glass etching and I am really looking forward to that...especially since I'll do the whole project in less than an hour.
What is the last big project you completed?
