About 6 months ago I told myself it was quite alright if I never made another pot. Well, people kept asking for little plates and bowls at the art market and I caved in. But I was bored with the same designs. So just when I should have been getting ready for the bead show next week, I decided I really needed to make butterfly plates and bowls which required making up a new set of designs. There are a bunch of these in the big kiln right now along with beads. It is firing. It almost didn't fire. I almost had a little (maybe big) teary session. But Sweet Pete to the rescue with a new plug and we are chugging along side of a tiny kiln of bronze pieces. Whew!
I'm off at 6 am for the 8 hour drive up to Wichita. I'm pretty excited about everything except for the 8 hour drive part. But it will be so worth it to get some of those wedding plans sorted and get that lovely bride a beautiful dress. Which in fact I am told may be difficult as there is a bridal convention in town this weekend. What the heck is a bridal convention? Well I guess I am about to find out. And I really am all a flutter with happiness at seeing my daughter and Tammy the bride and my soon to be grand daughter Alyssa!
Have a great weekend everyone.
