Ends

I finished the lid last night and then enjoyed wine and molasses cookies and chips and salsa. Whoops, too much food! But the company was nice. Now that I look again at the whole piece, I can see where the major errors are, but my hands are done for now. No more repeats! This will be a very good teaching piece, where I can point out all the errors.

I then devoted the rest of the day to getting rid of all the offcuts. My poor fingers! I had a laugh doing this one, a silver ball for Vagner. This was fun.
This was less fun, and is so different from what I imagined, but it was good practice doing another double-layered piece. All I can think of is using it to hold change.
The final piece was another gourd, with the tiniest possible pieces. The rest all got tied up into new necklaces. Now it's 7pm on the last day of June and I am free! I hope to make good use of the freedom.
