Out of the tumble drier.........

another bowl making session....

the silk bowl is far too thin, may cut it up instead,

the three grey natural ones look fantastic when placed inside each other.

I may work out how to weight them down and stitch together to make a 3D structure rather than a bowl

I now know that I have to add a lot more fibre to get a good rigidity but great fun to experiment.

the grey ones together look like a bud about to open:)) I like the pink with the "veines" in it - reminds me of a geranium blossom... you could increase rigidity by adding a kind of starch?

I'm busy spinning some matching yarn so I can work on the grey bowls, Thanks for all your comments.

I will get back to you personally but full time work has been a bit of a shock to the system :-)
