Hello again, Nancy J

Heading north in our caravan, we stopped for the night at Marton.  And popped in to see my blogging friend Jean, who writes her interesting blog: All Points of the Compass - do check it out.    Poor Jean had a nasty fall recently, cracked some ribs and has a mighty bruise.  Her doctor warned her not to cough, sneeze or laugh, and keep up with the pain relief, but nothing much keeps this irrepressible lady down.  Just look what she managed to whip up since her accident.

P2190018 Fabric bowls

She made a whole lot of fabric bowls.  What do you put in them?, I wanted to know.  Seems the idea is to use them under a bowl of food when you heat it up in the microwave.  The fabric bowls become a made-to-measure holder so you don’t burn your fingers.

While I was chatting with Jean and her friend, Robin was outside on the patio putting the world to rights with Hugh.  It was good to see them both again, and remember Jean, no more laughing for the next six weeks!

Jenny, I cannot help but have a huge smile, here I was thinking the white cloth would show the bowls off a little better, ( pattern thanks to Linda at Razzle Dazzle, and Tamarack Shack) and there is the everyday blue checked one underneath. It was so good to catch up again, and Hugh and Robin did have a chat in the cool. Impossibly hot here today, 33C, nowhere to go but the beach. Pics of water, sand and fog to follow. Cheers to you both, Jean.

Great idea for the fabric bowls. Hope your friend will soon be pain free.
