Never Tell a Lie or Your Nose Will Grow…and other Tales

I have had the busiest, most whirlwind kinda week ever! But I have one more week until a wee getaway and then Maryland Sheep and Wool, which I cannot wait for! Tonight I am going to mellow out in the pottery studio and try to get some more work done. I should soon have enough for a bisque firing. I am planning on making a load of buttons and some more tea bowls, cups and mugs for an upcoming idea I have.

I have been working away on this bowl based on the tale of Pinocchio. It is Pinocchio’s head with a branch sprouting from his lying little face and says ‘never tell a lie or your nose will grow’.

And a little cup I call ‘Fat Crows’

I am also just about ready to record the next podcast. It’s going to be a really fun one!

I had a really amazing mail day today! I scored 3 skeins of Skinny Bugga from the last SG update! My favourite is Sea Urchin.

And a friend, Dana, send me these adorable little earrings and stitch markers made from handspun, hand dyed laceweight:

Now, its time to fill Winston’s water bowl – he practically had to get in there trying to forage for water! Yikes! I am a bad bug mommy!

Yay for Long Weekends!

It could not be a more perfect weekend. Yesterday the weather was so beautiful that I packed up all my stuff to head over to the pottery studio but then feeling the cool breeze and warm sun, I was drawn to take a nice walk. Everyone was out with the dogs and it was too fun. I then spent the afternoon working away on some pottery. I am hoping to have enough pieces to do a bisque firing soon. Here are a few pieces I am working on. Sorry for the bad photo – the lighting in the studio in this area isn’t the best.

I did quite a bit of sculpting yesterday, and carving, and then applied coloured slip to my Octopus and Squid bowl which is starting to come along nicely.

I am just cleaning off my desk this morning to record the podcast and then I think I will go knit at the park. Ooh..a sneak peak at a project I am doing for the podcast!
