Thanks for the encouragement. I did a few watermelon carvings for a buffet at work and now they want me to do more for all events. Go figure! I need to find a way to make it part of my salary. With more practice I would like to start a part time business. I will send more pics as to my progress and once again Thanks for the great lessons.

    Hola. nita Gill. Me encanta como realiza su trabajo en la decoracion. De frutas y verduras es un Arte lo que usted realiza. He visto varios de sus videos. Mi probelma es que mi ingles no es muy bueno. Yo he aprendido algunas cosas de usted es ver como los realiza pero casi no entie do lo que usted dice en Ingles. Dios le bendiga. Al leer el ingles comprendo un poco mas.

      Thank you Reynaldo. I’m glad you enjoy the lessons. I once had a woman write to tell me that she was learning English through my videos.

      For my English Speaking customers, here is the translation via Google Translate:

      “Hi. Nita Gill. I love how she does her work in decorating. Of fruits and vegetables is an Art what you realize. I’ve seen several of his videos. My problem is that my English is not very good. I have learned some things from you is to see how you do them but almost do not understand what you say in English. God bless you. When I read the English I understand a little more.”
