Podcast Episode 3 Gourd Baskets & Contest






Today, I started taking pictures of a new gourd design: Flower Basket Gourd. I used egg shapes for one side and will be painting One-Stroke irises on the other side as well as painting the basket stakes and weavers. I'm showing pictures of the tools I'm using which are discussed on this episode. I also introduced a contest to win seeds from this gourd, which was purchased from the Welburn Gourd
Farm several years ago. Send in your entries to millruncrafts@yahoo.com. The jar pictured is 4" square. Please tune in to hear about the making of the gourd. I'll be posting more pictures in the next couple of weeks as I make progress on completing the gourd. Tune in at www.gourdlady.mypodcast.com.
