The 3 gourds show have homegrown
sweetgrass coiled at the top with 4 ply waxed linen stitching. Glass beads,
yarn and seashells from Topsail Island, NC are used to accent the center
gourd and 2 colors of 4 ply waxed linen were used to make the knotless
netting around the outside. -- Angie Wagner, www.wovenbranch.com
