    Well I was wrong, spring isn't here. Summer is here. It's pretty darn hot.

Threw two whole pots today, then destroyed one.

    Destroyed it deliberately, pushing the clay, as I didn't like what I'd made, so just kept on until it became a tornado.

    I destroy about 95% of what I make. I have a whole shelving unit full of stuff I am going to hammer and trash next week. Keeps me on my toes!

    Do you throw away because it isn't good or because your not satisfied with it?

Can't get into the studio. Fresh paving laid between house and greenhouse door. Not allowed to walk on it yet. Which book do I want to re-read?

    Forget the book. Go press your hand in the cement, write initials, dates. LOL

    "Thank you for arguing." That is one of my most recommended books to almost anyone who asks me about a book to read.

Discharged from fracture clinic. Now I can start getting back to a normal life. Physio says it could take another 8 months before shoulder returns to "normal". I'm cool with that.

    When I had my 2 shoulder surgeries, I had to sleep in my recliner for a month each time. If you have one you might try it...Hang in there and recover soon, Chilly!

    Sleeping definitely the worst thing. Pile of pillows is helping. And busy during the day.

    I couldn't get on either, I even e-mailed Joseph to see if he could get on. CMF accidently locked me out one time, so I was just checking I wasn't the only one.

Sold my "Throwdown" style Pierced vase to "painter" at the pottery class. Picture in gallery.

    Her secret is, she does ALL the carving and then, only then, does she pop the cutouts. That way she has the integrity of the clay and can do much more intricate work.

    I love pierced work so I thought you might like this tip. Not to take away from your vase which I think is absolutely gorgeous. :)

    Thanks Giselle, I like the cut it all, then remove it process. The clay has to be just the right hardness, Too soft and it doesn't cut, too hard and you end up scraping it out. Will try this technique on the next one tho'.

Went to a "Hey Clay" free taster at a local "pottery painting" barn. Made a hand-coiled "funky" xmas tree. Going to dry and fire at home.

First time on the wheel for 5 1/2 months. Collarbone held up well. Shame about throwing skills (or lack of).

Recycled and wedged a bucket of scraps. Shoulders aching. Should be nice and soft to throw at next weeks class.
