Do you think that could possible be correct?
Maybe I have jumped a time zone.
As you can see I am behind on my duties to pass on the award.
I am still thinking about it, not.
Really I am thinking it is just a really busy week for us.
Last week I followed Mark up to the corner so he could bush hog the pasture where the corner sign is for all the potters who live on our road.
When we opened in 1982 we were the only ones down here. Then as others opened we realized it would be beneficial to have a group sign. So we did.
In the 30 years we have been through two designs for the sign.
One held just 4 of us and we all had a space side by side 2 on one side 2 on the other... I wish I had a picture, that looked good.
Then we had more potters, some have closed now, and some new ones have taken their place, and we needed a bigger sign.
A few years back, about 4, the owner of the property past away and we were waiting to see who might buy the property.
We finally decided to go ahead and talk with the lawyer who is handling the property and get permission to repair and replace.
And that is where Tuesday morning went.
I painted the bottom while Mark did all the top work.
Next we need everyone to order new signs to replace the old, gun shot ones.
( they are too tempting...not to be shot at at least once, if not twice..)
If you remember the last round we had a batch of cold wax, Forbes, that did not work for us and we ended up setting some pots aside.
Well here is what they looked like today:
|No, this post is not wearing a skirt|
|See how nice the bottle next to me is with the right wax?|
A bit of work but less work then is we washed the pots and allowed them to dry. We did that with the smaller pieces.
But- we did not want to risk trying to wash these and have something happen to them, like bumping them wrong.
On that note, Tracey, I had a pot I was holding and sanding, yes, I was wearing a mask, and while I was admiring the new stamping pattern I had used and was thinking about how to glaze it I just dropped it.
( insert *&%%##$ your own word here)
Gone so quick I hardly had time to think about it.
Made me almost laugh, almost!
It did make me think about Tracey's theory on pots you really like and how they know it so they blow up or jump right out of your hand.
Again forgive me the 10 bloggers I just have to get back to you on that.
