A Bowl and a Story

Here is a more recent bowl. I weaved some random fibers and left the ends long. Then I added a double ring of wood that used to be part of an earring and tied some more fibers on it. (Where as most crafters would MAKE jewelry, I UNmake jewelry.)
I finished it with fabric trim.

Here's the story:
I was working on a bowl one day, when my granddaughter (age 5) scooched in beside me. "Whatcha doin', Geege?" (I am Gigi to my family and old friends.)
"I am making a bowl." I replied.
She stayed very still and watched for a minute or two. I could tell she was thinking very hard. Then "But wasn't it already a bowl?" she asked, cautiously, as if I had possibly lost touch with reality.
