Thank you.  It was a gift I made for a friend.  She shows it at her place of business.

Thank you for your comment Connie. I love your gourds. They are really nice. What tools do you use? I have tried to carve deeper like these. My gourds seem like they are not thick enough.

Well believe you me, if I could carve as good as you I'd be tickled pink!

I can't believe we were both there at the same time and didn't know each other but are writing now.  What a hoot.  I love your green gourd with the reddish, orange flowers.  I've been scrolling through your gourds.  I also love the african violet and the stand made of antlers to hang gourds on.  Beautiful.

Well you're welcome Connie.  All your carving is great.  I hope I can reach that level.

Did you go to the gourd festival in Fredericksburg?  I took Bonnie's class there this last weekend and bought some burrs you described for filigree work.  Thanks for sharing your secrets.  I'm going to give it a try and will be back with questions along the way I'm sure.

I live close to Lubbock in a little town called Lorenzo.  My family has a ranch in Eden and I grew up in the San Angelo area so I know Junction.  I grew up in Ballinger and spent many a morning eating doughnuts at a great little restaurant in Dublin.  We went through there every summer going to see the relatives.  So I know right where you are.  I love your work.  What are your favorite carving burrs?  I just took a class with Bobbie Gibson on carving and filigree and bought some new ones but haven't really tried much carving.  I love your style.  Got any clues to get me started?

Hay Connie, There where some really nice pieces in the competition. You did pretty darn good!

Mahalo (thankyou so much) Connie. I will definately go shop for carbide burrs on Connie's website. Again, thanks. Cindy

Hi Connie,  I know what you mean about painting, it takes 3 times longer to shade and get the colors just right. I now prefer the woodburning, but want to try my hand at carving, just so afraid I'll ruin the beautiful gourd, if I slip!Do you use a large carbide burr or the diamond heads? Hope you don't mind my asking, just don't want to flub it up, if you know what I mean. lol. Yes I do love creating on gourds, they are so natural and wonderful to work on.
