"I have found a few of the colors are labeled the same, but ink a different color. Almost ruined a gourd, with the teal. But it did turn out OK."

I was wondering if you've been doing any gourd art lately. I haven't but I am getting ready to. Takes me a little while to get inspired after the Christmas Holiday but I'm almost there. We still need to get together sometime. Let me know when you will be in Alamo.

Jane,
There is no group in Alamogordo that I know of. Kathe Stark has just started one in Las Cruces . Their first meeting was last Tuesday night. I didn't make it because I didn't want to travel at night. Hopefully she can set something up for a Saturday daytime. I haven't talked to her to see how it went but if you want to contact her I'm sure she wouldn't mind........ kstark@comcast.net. Let me know sometime when you are coming to Alamo. Maybe we can get together.

Hi, Jane! How's sunny New Mexico? Are you getting a lot of rain these past few days? Will the desert be in bloom when we come thru there?

I had the startup meeting for the new Patch at PB Library on Monday and got 14 people in the new Patch! I hope you can join us for Patch meetings when you're in town. Your expertise would be invaluable! Most of the 14 are beginners!

See you at Wuertz!
