      Go to the browse tab at the top, then there is a sub area called Gallery.

    2. Babs


      yeh but in old forum you could go to everyone's albums in Members where there was an alphabetical list of all members and one could access their albums not just recent uploads..

    3. LeeU


      When you go to the Gallery, click on the box at the top left box labeled "Members Gallery". It is all members with gallery pics and has 42 pages, though not alphabetical by member name or the avatar name.

    4. Denice


      I have that happen to me way to often. Usually I had been carrying to much and had to set something down.

  20. Yesterday refir ed blistered pots..waiting, waiting. Ground blistered, flaky shelves.Prepared pots for glazing today. Frost on the ground this am but birds nesting.

  21. made some brushes from a variety of vegetation and milet broom, off to try them on outside of some earthenware bowls. think some will be a bit brittle. Hope the slip is the right consistency,usually defloc for even application.

  22. back to throwing exercises, and poss need a new thumb.. weakness and pain in second joint from tip.. battled today, tomorrow.. JB's exercises until!!!

  23. Pugmill looked so beautifully clean, and somewhat corroded that I was lured into using it myself!!

    1. Chilly


      The temptations we face......

    2. Babs


      How weak we are! And loving it!

  24. Spent yesterday cleaning pugmill so that afriend can use it .. now it's so clean, well almost, feel it should be left that way as I won't be using it for a time and can't keep the clay left in pug wet. However it has been character building,.. Maybe I'll offer to wedge the clay instead..

    1. Biglou13


      Have friend clean pugmill, then clean again after finishing. If were that friend I'd offer to do so.

      Yeh, means taking apart three heavy sections . I'm waiting for someone to envent "looks like clay, feels like clay but doesn't dry in a pugmill. you just feed it in after you've done your clay and it stays there till next time... anyone want to take that idea and work on it??
