So happy!

The gourd is finished, the glue is dry, and I still can't quite believe I did it. No glue holds the pieces together right now, but I think the weight of MerMomma's body is putting some stress on her anchoring arm - I don't want it to crack again, so perhaps I will end up gluing her permanently to the gourd after all.






I am rapidly using up my stash of Yadeno mohair. Does anybody know where I would be able to get some more??

Judi ... this piece is beautful. I think the gourd was a perfect base for the sleeping merbaby. I love the way the mother mermaid is wrapped around watching her sleeping little one. Beautiful!
