Mid Month

I looked at the calendar today and had that feeling of shock that September was almost over and October will be here very soon. I feel like October is when my fall race starts. All the holidays, shows, field trips and trying to find the time to enjoy it all is right around the corner. Last year I made a real effort to enjoy my family time because is other years, the fall had been a blur. I'm still going to try and stick to that promise I made to myself this year as well.
So..on that "October thought", I have a one man show that is going up at the end of next week. YIKES! I do have some pots put a side for it but as always I want some new things so I've been busy these last two evenings and today. Tuesdays are my long day in the studio because Joey takes the kids to school for me and my parents get the girls at 12:30 so I have until about 1:30 or so to work. Today in my neck of the woods, the weather was just wonderful and being out on my porch throwing was the best. Today was a day that you wanted skip around and whistle a happy tune. ( I guess I've watched Snow White a bit to many times...)

My mother-in-law, who is whiz with a sewing machine sent this to me last week. I didn't have what I needed to hang it up for my show last weekend but I will proudly hang it at the Claymatters show in October. I'm slowly going to start getting my inside booth together for the big show I'm doing at Thanksgiving in Raleigh. My tec guy listed a new side bar with all my shows. I'm sure I'll be adding more as they come up so keep checking back.

I love your flag!

Hey, I saw the same leaf and was trying to figure out how I could use it as a form. Thought the clay bulging out between the metal ribs would look really cool, but even on sale was more than I wanted to pay!

Your flag is really great. Can't wait to see it at the show.

I keep hoping to get my mom to embroider some of my aprons with catchy sayings so i can be inspired when I work, but she has been too busy.
