Yarn Bowls

Yarn Bowls © Joe Ottendorf

Last year when yarn bowls came out and all the knitters and crocheters
wanted one, I also wanted one, but knew we couldn't afford one. They
were selling anywhere from $20.- to &55.- & $65.- and that my friends
will buy alot of grocery's.

Christmas 2014
 Every Christmas, My brother & wife come to spend Christmas with
Mom (for those of you who don't know, My Mom lives next door to us)
and they brought a friend with them (Joe Ottendorf). They called me
over and Joe had brought me a green yarn bowl and presented it to me
for Christmas. I was on top of the world because I had wanted one and
couldn't justify spending the money on one. Joe makes them from
pottery and I fell in love with my yarn bowl... I told Joe I would treasure
it always and thanked him and have used my bowl 24/7 for the entire year,
and when I thought of Joe's gift I've sent special Prayers Heaven ward in
his behalf..

Christmas 2015
 Well yesterday my brother (Lanny & wife Delores) came down from
Branson to spend the day with Mom again, and yes they brought Joe
with them again. Mom called me over there again (I try to stay at home
so Lanny can have some one on one time alone with Mom when he comes
to visit as I do when my Sister (Stacy) comes to visit). I went over and
Joe presented me with another yarn bowl, this time is Brick Oven Red
 and just as beautiful as my green one. Again I thanked him for his loving
gift and said I'd treasure it always,

For someone who wanted a yarn bowl, and never said anything to anyone
about wanting one, God knew my heart and used Joe to Bless me not once
but twice with yarn bowls... Thank You Jesus

I'm thinking I'll use my green bowl for my knitting, and my red one for
Crocheting, Maybe... smile, or maybe both or knitting, only the Lord
knows... Smile

Joe Ottendorf makes and sells his Pottory Yarn Bowls (made by hand
here in the Ozarks - Look on the bottom of bowls, you'll see Joe's name
and Made in the Ozarks along with the year he made it) in Craft Stores
in Branson, so if your wanting one, You'd be Blessing a "Vet", as well as
Blessing a "Hillbilly" here and from the Ozarks. Look for Joe's Pottory
Yarn Bowls and I thank you in advance for your support
