I decided to create this piece sized to hang over a sofa, piece of furniture in a front entrance or dining room. It's on pause for a short time while I work on a commission I just accepted. If anyone has interest in this piece, I can discuss the completion and price with you now.

The cost of fabric, even humble canvas has gotten the attention of all sewers. It's understandable the public doesn't realize just how much goes into creating fiber art; money, time, skill etc. Heck, I don't know the cost of car parts as I gasp when the mechanic presents me with the bill.
So, a few more fabric bowls will be coming out of my studio in the next days/weeks. They aren't fast to make but the results are satisfying. Update - blue bowl - SOLD

Not much time to sew lately.......they say things come in threes. I can probably double that....back hatch on car won't stay open, hearing aid needed fixing, 4 window in our house have clouded.....2 are at least 20' high including one LARGE fixed one. NO one will accept the warranties. Played telephone 'pass the buck' now for over a week. Okay, I vented so won't go into the rest of my list!!
But....what I have accomplished was pretty satisfying. After making several of these 11" fabric bowls awhile back, I decided they weren't worth the time/effort to make for sale. However, I since I still had canvas remaining, here are two more.....
