This year in the month of May I will be joining along with Kari also known as Tiger Lily Designs in #fillthebowlmania. I am very excited to have the whole month set aside to work on small projects for my dough bowl. I have kitted up all of my projects and wanted to share them with you along with my fabric and color changes. My fabric and floss choices all came from my stash, I tried matching them to the pictures and in a few cases I wanted to brighten the colors a little.

Week 1: Keeper of the Pins by With Thy Needle and Thread/Mystery SAL Summer Home Clue #1 by Fat Quarter Shop (FQS)

 Fabric: 32 count linen Light Mocha
I will be using 14 count aida in the color Feedsack by Lori Holt and switching the colors to make it look more patriotic. I am not exactly sure where I am going to put the colors but will use those pictured. I will be posting progress each week so be sure to follow me on instagram @sweetwaterstitcher

I hope you will join me, just use the hashtags #fillthebowlmania & #sweetwatermaynia. Another option if you do not want to fill your dough bowl would be to fill your tiered tray. 141 Design company has great backers for smalls that stand up in your tiered tray.
