Hi, Gloria, Nice to see you on here! I enjoyed having you as a student too, one of my regulars! LOL! I checked out your gourds on here. Nice work! My very favorite is your woodburned TeePee. Beautiful! I really like your wooden stand and the inlaid pebbles, too.
Actually cleaning them was pretty rewarding after usually cleaning bigger ones... you almost had me talked into it, but 300?! Yikes! Yes, I will have to let you know what they develop into... maybe I'll bring one to the festival in July! Happy Cleaning!
Hello Gloria, glad to meet you.
We do have a small garden and raise our own Gourds.
We did not do very well last year and hope to make up for it in 2010.
Deb and I are looking forward to learning more and maybe teaching a thing or two.
Deb does most of the gourd work and I work with leather, so we combined the two.
We are looking forward to July and meeting up with other members.
Gloria, the Fuchia gourd was done by Sandy Taylor, I can only hope to do one as nice when I try the Aves Apoxie sculpt...I'm having a problem getting my photos to load but I'll try again tomorrow. Thank you for responding and I'm sure Sandy will enjoy your praise. Tami
