Default board-wide challenge entry-gourd bowl

I know, I know. I'm really stretching here, but this is the only stitching I can get my head around. And it is stitched, all by hand. The pine needles and the feather.

My next gourd bowl. The second picture shows that it's slightly bigger than the first one.

These are so cool Pinokeeo. I really like the pine needle detail.

Well, it does say needle work .....

Those are really nice. I tried to grow some gourds so I could try this type of craft. The gourd vines died - too hot. I like the detail you do on your gourds. The designs are really nice.

Thank you both. I tried to hit the thanks button, but for some reason, it isn't working tonight.

I really like these gourds. They are awesome to work with. I'm going to try carving them after my next show is over.

That sounds cool. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
And your 'thanks' worked, I can see it! (I'd say thanks for the thanks, but that could end up going on forever )

It did work!! It wasn't showing up last night. Or maybe I was asleep at the switch.

Anyway, I'll post the other gourds when I figure them out.

Great job and it is stitching. I had to laugh at Grem's remark on needle stitching.

I was beginning to wonder if I was to subtle with that comment.
