This will be the second class I've taken from Linda Ashmore !  'Can't wait to see her!  I'm still a novice when it comes to gourd decorating, but there seems to be some progress with my skill set.

You can  click here  to read about the first class.  My completed project always makes me smile! 

Linda crammed so much info into that class!  It was amazing.  Here are attempts on my own!
Just click on the title if you would like to see the entire post.

'Gotta be honest.  I was over-the-top frustrated with my second project until the antique agent was used. 
The pine needle weaving still needs practice! 
If you have time next Saturday, join me at Ozark Folkways near Winslow, Arkansas!  Linda is an absolutely delightful teacher!

  1. Wow! Your first project makes me smile too! I tried to mess with some gourds I's harder than I thought it would be! I gave up. You did great!

  2. Very cool! I'd love to go to a class when they are making those pots and baskets. I don't think I would be interested in jewelry, but I'll keep an eye on their website.

  3. This sounds like so much fun! If I lived there I would gladly pay the 20$! That is great price. Have fun!

  4. Those are so beautiful! It would be so neat to know how to do that.

  5. Oh my goodness!! These are fantastic!!! LOVE the leaves!!

  6. These look amazing! What a beautiful way to decorate for the fall!
    Thanks for sharing!

  8. Thank you for linking up these beautiful gourd projects to my blog hop!

  9. I really like the antiqued gourd. These are all very clever.

  10. I wish I lived close enough to take the class, these look like a lot of fun to make~
    Thank you for linking up with the Clever Chicks this week; I hope you’ll join us again!
