I bought this beautiful woven accented gourd in West Lafayette, Indiana at an artists' collective gift shop when my sister and I went there for a Ricky Tims seminar in 2006. The tag was still inside the gourd and serendipitously this artwork is named "Pot of Fortune" by the artist (handweaver Carol J. Kuebler).
Here the contents are being stirred by the mixmaster.
The winner is Kate! Amazingly, Kate was the first to enter the giveaway. Her three essentials were a calculator, notepad, and sticky notes. Kate will be getting an email with the good news. Kate blogs from Oklahoma and you can visit her at Life In Pieces. She takes some lovely photos and has a 15 Minutes a Day quilting challenge.
