Hurry Up and Wait...

My one Spring show is a week from today (Powhatan Festival of Fiber a one day event).  The kiln is firing away with the last bisque.  I have learned to fire during the day...that way the kiln cools at night without me standing there tapping my toes in impatience!

But here are a few pictures of things waiting to be picked up by Serendipity Quilt Shop in Delaware.  You may remember that she has requested chickens, quilts and the beach!  With a few sheep thrown in for good measure.







I had a special request for a chicken yarn bowl.  What do you think?


And then of course there is the rest of the livestock....





And a sheep of a different breed.  Jacob Sheep have FOUR horns.  There are a few vendors at these festivals that sell their wonderful wool.


While I waiting for the pots to dry (remember that are currently slowly heating to 1888 degrees in my kiln as I write this) I helped celebrate Earth Day with my local Spinners and Weavers Guild.  It was a beautiful day after such a long cold winter!






That's yours truly working on the Earth Loom.


Fingers crossed that NEXT Saturday will be as beautiful!

Thanks everyone! Kiln is at 300 degrees. Waiting patiently (?) for it to cool down to 200 so I can open it up and start unloading....
