After being laid low last week from my shingles vaccine booster – think worst hangover ever accompanied by a temp of 102, I finally feel like I’m on the downside of this ugliness. Jeez louise, I hate to be sick!
I’ve made what I consider great progress on Leksak Lady, with only one and one half sleeves and the crochet edging to be done. I admit, I’m particularly proud of my edging as I rarely crochet (though I really do enjoy doing it) and am usually pleasantly surprised at how good it looks.
I’m going to try my hardest to remember to add project notes when a project is completed. I find other knitter’s project notes really helpful and, well, turnabout is fair play my mama always said.
OK, that’s my string side. Now, on to the mud…..
My new clay finally arrived and new clay is always cause for a celebration. I threw a couple of chucks, which I sorely needed. It seems like just about everything that comes off my wheel lately has some sort of neck and I find it impossible to trim without using one. Granted, a chuck isn’t the most exciting thing to come off my wheel, but it sure is nice to have one when I need it!
Someday I’m going to learn how to level my shots. 🙂
I threw this vessel and stamped it as an experiment. I like the way it turned out – what do you think? Maybe my new glazes will have arrived by the time it’s ready for glazing and it’s final firing.
FYI – Tomorrow is the first day of the fall session of pottery class. It’s doubly exciting because we’re in a new (to us) building as the Arkansas Art Center and Museum School is undergoing a facelift/remodel slated to take three years. Exciting stuff!
One more thing – If you haven’t visited ClayDreamsPottery lately, go on over and take a look. You never know what you might find!
