Our Life For Now

Unfortunately the Kitchen Fairy did not show up last night.

But I have since done the cleaning up myself, stretched a bit and walked Layla.  Not bad since I'm feeling a bit under the weather today.....and trying not to let my surroundings make me too crazy.

My spacious photography studio.
(It's no wonder it's taking me so long to update my Etsy Shop....)

Greg's work space and Layla's crate room.....

We are SO looking forward to our new place!  We met with Jon our builder last week.  He seems as excited about the project as we are.  (Of course he will be on the receiving end of those checks we will be writing....) He also seems to feel we are being realistic with what we want and our budget.  That still needs to be proven with drawings and "The Official Estimate".  He plans on doing all the exact measurements this week.  We close a week from today so we are a bit ahead of the game.

Meanwhile I am slowly adding to my inventory for Fall Fiber Festival in October.  I know that it is a few months away.  But working in the public pottery space is a bit cramped for processing so I am doing it in baby steps now.

Waiting for glazing....

I cut this woman's shawl off my loom on Saturday.  I'll be doing the finishing (twisting fringe, washing etc.) at home.

For my next project!

And thanks so much for all your comments on the last post!  Comments keep me motivated so they are very much appreciated. :)

Love the 3 sheep/sheepdog bowl. Keep on keeping on - after a year of painting, scraping, sanding, ripping up carpet, laying hardwood, etc, I'm finally moving my office back into my office, and out of the living room.

I can't believe the multi tasking you are doing! Weaving clay and moving into a new house. Pick one, girl! You are making me feel bad, I'm just sitting on the sofa watching TV :) love those bowls!!!

The shawl is gorgeous! And I can't wait until "face mugs" are available for purchase......I'd totally buy a groucho marx looking one for Tony!

Hey there Sheeri! The yarn bowls are glazed and awaiting firing. I will definitely be revisiting the face mug idea. I used to make them. I think it's time to bring them back.
