Just musings of a gourder

there are good gourding days, a few not so good and then the very worst day ever.......so far.

I've been fighting a sinus' infection for months. What does this have to do with gourding? Everything. I can protect my sinus', that's not the problem. I discovered and plan to live by something I recently learned the hard way. If you have to push yourself to work on a gourd and you're not feeling well at all.......DON'T!

I had a penguin gourd that was so far from perfect, I had to…

close to throwing this laptop across the room

but that would be stupid. I have had so little time to tell my fellow gourders how incredible their work is. I've been trying but I just tried to post a comment at 2 wonderful gourd pics and my comment refused to post. PC driving me nuts, so giving up for now. I only wish ya'll could know how wonderful I think all the work I've been looking at, is.

So little pc, think you might post this???????   going to try now, so get it together!

there's a first time for everything


After all these years of making and selling my gourd art, I finally got to participate in a gourd festival and had such a ball. I know that these things are old hat to many, but it was my first time and very exciting. I've been such a hermit for over 2 years that it felt good to do something really different. 

I know the Celebration of Gourds in Albuquerque, NM was not as big as some, but it has the potential to be,…

Thanks, Sandy,  It has been a very hard adjustment for me losing my mom.  I want to still pick up the telephone and call to tell her something.  It has had an effect on my art work.  I find I just can't seem to get back into the gourds.  I do plenty of manual labor about the house and yard but not gourds.  I only did the curlew because it was a comissioned piece.  I do need to get back to gourding or I am going to have a skimpy booth at Wuertz.  The estate is all settled and the house is sold so now is the time to shift gears.  Thanks again, Sandy.

I agree on the "four walls" statement. So glad Spring is upon us. Right now I am recuperating from a "Meniere's/vertigo attack. Ugh... I hate this part of my life!

Yes the gourd is green, then filled with the dye, made from sandalwood soaked in water. ( a common sandalwood, not the rare one)

I will be posting more photos of the progression as it dyes, takes about 3 weeks..
