Let's just say, this was not my best couple of days for commerce. So, we move on. I was, however, invited to participate in a three day All Judaica Fair in Moriah, IL (close to Chicago) during Judaica Arts Week. This is, Apparently, a very big deal. So, head down and punt, I say.

Photos this week, ETSY, next week. There's more than one way to punt.

So it's three days before the River Arts District Stroll. This is a big deal for potters and artists in the area, especially the November stroll (so close to the holiday season). The only thing is that it is also cold and flu season not to mention STRESSFUL!. So, of course, I have a sore throat, a bladder thing and my BP is 168/90...NOT GOOD. Two of my important pieces didn't get in the kiln, even though I paid for them to be fired. Dean's work schedule has changed so I have to take him to work on Saturday at 3pm and will have the baby until 10pm. AAAAHHH!

Calm, I am calm. I am the light, I am the calm.

New Stuff???

So, I have been avoiding the wheel for about a week. I was frustrated by my lidded pot assignment from Becca Floyd. The pots were pretty nice, but I couldn't trim the lids without disaster. I ended up with jars with no lids and that was just unacceptable, so I stopped for a few days. But unable to stay away from the clay, I started "Women of the Torah", my mini gallery of ideas for larger pieces, if I ever learn how. So far, there are Naomi & Ruth and Hannah.

anyway, back to the wheel tomorrow.
