"LOVE!! These are just adorable.  I just have to make one, but the seed beading looks really hard.  Did you sew the seam on the leather or glue? "

Hay,

The over 1100 all paid $5 to get in. That's how we know how many. rosa in our patch headed up admissions. Each patch had a part to do. I'll be co-chair for competition next year. I'm now 60 miles south of Waco, Franklin is 1/2 way between Houston and Dallas.

 

Girl we look like hoarder right now....we have so much stuff every where, horse stuff, blacksmith stuff, gourd junk, woodworking tools, wine making equipment, dog stuff and house hold junk.....and we are living in the barn....only 675 square foot of living space.

 

Couple more days and we'll have everything moved and it will be time to build a new house. We're on a hill in the middle of 98 acres. i have my basket next to my bed!

Hay Ginny,

We have been moving so I've been out of touch with the computer and now very pooped and have the largest mess on hand. We are living in the barn now;-) Sold the house and now we need to build a new house up here on Bucksnort Road, in Franklin Tx.

The show turned out really good this year and was voted in for the next 3 years, we had over 1100 people come through the place is pretty darn nice and I didn't like the motel prices either. I tried to find a vacation home for a bunch of folks to split the price but didn't get enough commitments to make that workable. The complex will now be reanted for 5 days becuase it's cheaper to rent...that's crazy....but I like cheaper even if we are not using it. I sold more this year than ever.

I am very proud to have your piece...I worked hard to get it:-) Cheryl and I still talk about coming and taking some classes from you....it's just timing and  trying to move.

I love my Ginny basket.....love it!

Ginny!!! I want you to know your beautiful basket piece that you donated to TGS is now living with me. I was so hoping that you and Dusti would be at the show this year. The complex was the best that I can remember....yes any class that had to be outside was hot but with the over hang of the areas and fans it wasn't tooooooo bad.....Sunday I had a carving class 8am till 2pm....I stopped at 1 because the show was over at 3 and I wanted to be ready for the take down of the Patch booth. With all of the irons in the fire....a patch booth is the only way I can have a booth....working in competition, admissions, one class, covering the booth and doing what ever needed to help the venue....and also I had to go see folks. Thank you so much for your donations....I love my new basket....not only is it a great work but I know it's been in your hands. Darla

I wasn't able to go last year and not sure this year either.  I would love to go to the show and may do it. I have to ask off for that weekend. I haven't helped or had a booth in several years. So glad that you are still creating art gourds. This is a great place and really keeps you motivated to create too. Take care and glad I got to talk with you. I do miss the old days for sure!! We had such fun visiting etc. I miss all the ones passed away too.

Hey Ginny...been a long time. I love your items. Those little bags are really cool and your horses are great as usual. Hope you are doing OK. I'm working my 2 jobs and working some on making gourd shawl pins and buttons for fiber people. Take Care....

Ginny, did you have some photos posted of gourd necklaces that were made with cotton string or thread?  I remember seeing a photo but can't find it now and I don't remember who made them.  I was hoping it was you!

Thanks, Ginny, I enjoyed doing the banyan tree.  I will say that I was glad when I finished.
