I opened the kiln and

as usual I have mixed feeling. There are pastels in their. I am not a pastel person. But when I was glazing I felt all sort of springy. And one thing just lead to another. I will have to get used to them. Do you ever stray off your usual path just because the sun is shining and the air is warm?

The good news is that someone actually liked one of my spring daisy buttons and it was gone from my Etsy shop this morning. I am just a little sad about this one though. I liked it too. I will have to make another.

On another note. There are things in there ready for my little give-away. But it is still a mystery. Well not to me. But just as soon as I summon up a bit of energy, I'll post some pics. And no that bowl of bisque is not all glazed and fired. I am slow. It will take me a while.

There is still time to get in on the give away! Just stop over here.

Happy Sunday, LeAnn

Looks like you have some gorgeous pieces in there! Love this daisy button! Beautiful! I do know what you mean about mixed feeling at the first glace after the glaze firing. I feel like that also. It seems that pieces that I don't like at all when they first come out of the kiln, can grow on me. sometimes I like them later on. LOL!

Me too Erin. I often have to live with my pieces for a while, even months.

Hi LeAnn!
My, have you been busy! I just love the dragonfly! And those square pieces look very interesting.
Yes, there are times when a certain mood will affect the colours I use and afterwards, I can't understand what made me do it. Sometimes I like it and sometimes, well...

Hello Renate, I'm surprised you can see the dragonfly in there. It is destined for a mixed media experiment.

Sue, thanks, most of my firings take a little getting used to. So who knows what will appear later.

Cheers All, off to paw through the bits and pieces. Love the feedback!
