Happy First Birthday, Sprout!
I’M INTO POTS
Oh my gosh! What a difference seven days makes! First pottery throwing class was last week and I admit it – I wasn’t sure that that whole wheel thing was for me. I did promise myself that I’d give it four weeks and if I still wasn’t feeling it, I’d go back into the morning handbuilding class. Well, yesterday’s attempt at the wheel was totally different, something clicked inside my head (in a good way) and it was so cool! The clay stuck to the wheel, just like it was supposed to, centering the pot on the wheel was a million times easier and by the end of class, my hands were beginning to know what to do to cone the clay up and down on their own. Nothing post-worthy yet, but I may go to the Art Center today to practice more, besides, I have a pot that needs to be glazed and I’m thinking black.
GRINS AND GRANDS
I ran across this photo when I was looking for something else on Flickr. I don’t know how I missed it because I love it! My son, Jordan, and his niece, Susannah. Isn’t it sweet?
ON THE NEEDLES
I’ve also started on some Christmas knitting, which, for obvious reasons, must be kept under wraps until then.
My roving FINALLY arrived and this is what it has become –
Mixed undyed black and white roving from Fire and Fluff, this may further morph into socks, but I’ve still not decided for sure.
