That is fantastic! I've done some stuff with gourds too. I love the flowers.

The lid, when it is on the gourd, I cut it at an angle so it wouldn't fall in. If you mean in the picture, I just balanced it there.  Grin

Wow, that gourd is so beautiful.  And I love the giant wooden delete button.

ETA:  Where do you get gourds from?

That is so AWESOME beeker! I love things made out of gourds. I've always wanted to try my hand at them, but never got up the nerve to actually do it. Undecided Ah well, my daughter loves to plant a bunch of them every year and drills holes and cleans out the insides for the birds to nest in them. Smiley It's very beautiful to watch them nest.

I raised gourds last year and had a decent crop. Only about 5 bushel gourds though. Then they get stored in the barn over the winter. If you have somewhere to hang them on a wall is the best, just don't let them sit on cement. I didn't get my garden in the ground early enough this year for gourds. They need a nice long growing season and where we live you have to get them in early.
I love wood burning on gourds, it is much easier than wood Grin

ORGANIZER'S NOTE

We have 11 days left to send everyone! And then... contest time!  Cheesy  So here are a few instructions regarding the upcoming contest:

1. To participate you need to send by the deadline. I will make exceptions for unexpected issues that crop up- if you send a day or two late with a good reason and good communication, no problem. But I will not hold up the fun for anyone that sends really late or sends without any communication at all.

2. Sometime between now and the day of the contest, you need to send me links to 1 or 2 images of your container. Please do not send more then 2 and please don't send me a bunch and ask me to pick the best. You should choose images you think best show off the awesomeness of your creation. These can be pictures that your partner posted in the thread, or pictures you took and have uploaded to craftster, photobucket, etc. (Important- you cannot send [IMG] links in PMs- you will need to send me the html address to your images. Then I can copy the [IMG] link from craftster, photobucket, etc.) Since this is a contest for the container, your photos do not have to contain any whimsies. (They can if you want them too, but the whimsies won't be judged- just the container.)

3. Once all containers that were sent on time have been received, I will create a separate thread and post the image links within it. If you don't send me any images, your container will NOT be in the contest but you WILL still be eligible to vote. I will take all the entries, mix them all up, and post them to the thread randomly, assigning each entry a number. There will be a period of 5 days when you can peruse the list and cast your vote. You will send a PM to both me (freestyle) and Tero with the number of your chosen entry- I will be keeping track of the tally, but I want someone else to also have the PMs so no one can accuse me of favoritism. (Not that you guys would, but I like to cover my butt.)  Smiley

Hopefully all that makes sense. This is the most fair way possible that I can think to do this. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know.
