OK, so it's closer to September than August. Somehow the weeks are flying by. We've been planning our gourds for the North Carolina gourd show and Gary is well on his way to completion. He has the top carvings done on 4 sides, and is going to start the bottom carving of dragons and water that will wrap the entire gourd. The design, when laid out on paper measures 51 inches long.
That's a lot of carving.
Mine is a tad behind in development. I have the main shape, the basic design ideas but not a lot of effort so far. I've been procrastinating; reading and doing Santa gourds for our Canadian Gourd Society show in late October.
