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.
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 Joehad 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..
Well yeasterday 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
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, soif 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 inadvance for
