Remember there were gourds in that huge crafty box Meg sent to me. I had plans already designed for them, but I must make a Pysanky inspired gourd with at least one!

Thank you, Meg, for sharing your beautiful gourds.

Thank you for this. I want to

Thank you for this.
I want to learn pysanky and I also wanted to give them as gifts. However, as a Hindu, many of my Hindu friends see eggs as being cruel and unclean. I was looking for another medium to do wax-resist on.
I can't wait to try.

Gauri,  I do hope your plans

WOW Pam, thank you so much for such a nice post about the pysanky gourds! The idea was inspired by one your post on coloring gourds with markers and colored pencils... that was a fantastic idea and it got my creative juices going.
