Well hello fellow bloggers...As you can tell the window is not reached any progress. What you see in the past pictures is as far as I have gotten. But I have started a gourd that I have to finish this weekend and this is what I did to it a couple of days ago. I am going to paint it as well. I have cut (with a mini saw to gauge size I placed it next to a mason jar.)out oak leaves, maple leaves, and acorns. After I got it all cleaned out I painted it with ochre and gingerbread. Now I am going to paint oak, and maple leaves also acorns on the gourd. Once it is all finished I will place a 7 watt light into it and make a little lamp. This is the beginning of what I have done. I am going to add pictures later on tonight so hang in there.
