well, yesterday was frustrating
Got started late, the mold for the flower wasn't completely steamed out and by the time it was and the repair made (I hope) where a bubble got caught, dog walked, lunch had, it was too late to start filling it if I wanted to go to yoga, which I did. Drove all the way there to discover class canceled due to the town's christmas festival. When I got back, I could have chosen to work late over at the shop and get it in the kiln tomorrow. I thought about it and then just let it go. That's a good sign for me. In the past I would have worked til midnight every night up to the open house that is this Friday evening and Saturday, now four days away, to try and get it completed in time. Fuck it. One less piece is not going to make it or break it. In fact, I don't expect much attendance but that's a subject for another day. I'd rather take my time and have it come out than try to rush it and have it not come out. Plus, I still have plenty to do, besides actually making stuff, to get ready for this weekend.
And, my mood was not improved that of the three magnolia leaves, two cast disappointingly, one didn't fill the mold completely and the one with the red seeds, they look more black than red (although they do look red while wet so maybe it will be OK). They are currently bathing in vinegar.
About the only thing I got accomplished yesterday was cleaning the kitchen, which was no mean feat after having all three grandgirls here Friday thru Sunday.
I'll be glad when this weekend is over.
