This shekerie is painted, polyurathaned and beaded with metal beads. I was very happy with the way it turned out. It takes just as long to make this smaller one as it does to make the large ones - so pricing is hard, people do not understand that. Posted by Picasa

this is my little gourd patch beside the house. it is ok - the ones in the gardens are not doing anything. these will go with me if I move before they are ready- that will be interesting. I am going to a gourd festival in Raleigh,NC. this comming weekend, can not wait- need to get all the gourds I can - to finish all the projects I have been writing down. The next festival near me is not until may.  Posted by Picasa

gourds in progress, I really enjoy the whole process of working with the gourd to make fun and pretty stuff. these have been cleaned and holes drilled cleaned out and are ready to be dyed, painted, beaded etc. some are going to be shekeries, some bird homes, and the 1/2 's wall art. I am packing up the house right now to put it on the market so I have not been artistic lately- writting down all the ideas. Posted by Picasa
