Birds of a feather
As do pigs and swine.
Rats and mice
Will have their choice,
So shall I have mine.
Multi tasking is not a good idea in my case. I just managed to erase the best part of this posting. Live and learn!
I'm posting this little bird whistle as near life size to give an idea of detail. The color is good. I'm still working on taking decent photos. I have to find a new photographer for portfolio work. (My old guy died.) The hardest part is reflection......practice will make perfect.....I hope.

I'm really pleased with how the glazed stuff came through this firing. I have finally managed to find a wax resist I like...batik wax thinned to brushing consistency with odorless turpentine. By the time I finish most of the object is waxed....colors smearing is always a problem.
I used to make filled breads all the time then somehow I got out of the habit. I had a bunch of stuff I wanted to use up......sausage, spinach, an onion, mushrooms, a couple of potatoes. It was delicious!
It's supposed to get cold tonight. So far December has been more like late September. There are violets blooming around the fish pond. We've had a few little fires since Thanksgiving, more for the comfort than anything else. At this rate we should have a nice head start on next year. However, with New England weather it's a bad idea to count your chickens before they're hatched. It could get cold and snowy and stay that way into spring.
We're starting to get the Christmas stuff out and up. I don't like to start too early because I enjoy celebrating from the Solstice through Twelfth Night. Having no sectarian beliefs I enjoy celebrating a Season of Peace and Light. Especially light, it gets dark a little after 4:00 PM.
As always thank you for stopping by.............s-
