Mural

I finished up the pillow-tile mural this weekend. Here it is before I was almost all done. Pretty cool thing I think. I always marvel at those people who make stuff like this and look...I did it! ( Of course, I still have to get it through the kiln...)Here are my new covered jars. The tops reminded me ( before the final went on..) of the middle of flower petals so that was kind of my inspiration for these. We'll how how the public at the next show likes these.

...and finally, Joey has taken to snatching the camera and ambushing me at what seems to be the most unflattering times. Which in a way is funny...well amazing to him. He fallows me around saying " Smile..you look fine?" Usually I'm running out the door or working sort of in a state of panic or stress. Yesterday I was just kind of tired and ready for a break. I was thinking around the Christmas season we all get this way. Lots to take care of and do to get ready for the endless amount of show we all sign up for.

Today Mckenna went back to the doctors. We are on day 8 of the H1n1. Her flu has turned into the croup and of course we needed to take care of that before it goes further down into her lungs. I was a little stressed out about more days of this illness but than I just realized that its not worth the worry and I just do what I can do. Maybe less dishes will get done, or we'll be having some cereal a few nights for dinner but it will all be Ok. It always is and since she has requested Christmas music to listen to today while she draws, everything seems to be going quite nicely...just rolling along.
