I brought this lady in from her place on the pool deck this afternoon. It was quite balmy with temps in the 50's and intermittent sun, but it is time to admit that Autumn is over and winter is on its way.
I am finally feeling well enough to spend a little time in my studio. I only glazed a few mugs and laid out the basic design on a pitcher, but I have to start somewhere. In the next day or so I will roll out a few slabs. I like to let them sit for a day or two if I have the time. It may be pure superstition on my part but I think they handle more easily if they have had time to age a bit under plastic.
I baked a loaf of my old stand by Cuban bread today. It's really a loaf and a half. I used the other half to make pecan sticky buns. They got eaten before I thought to take a photo.
Our Christmas Sale is over tomorrow. I have not had the wherewithall to even inquire about sales. I'll go over in the afternoon to pack up my stuff. I think I'll pretty much pass on the party though.
With all the interesting times we have been having since Hurricane Sandy I have not even begun to do anything for Christmas. Fortunately we are in for some relatively benign weather so things should come together quite easily and quickly.
This post will also be over on Mud Colony. Take a look and see what is happening in the world wide community.
I hope everyone has enjoyed a pleasant week end filled with sales, or relaxation.
As always.........thanks for stopping by....*s*
