Nice Chuckle, Charmion! I am so impressed by your progress - not the dead body!

Trying to find stickers that will stick, I saw a couple pots still wore stickers from the Art Gallery gift shop. Starting my errands yesterday, I encountered a couple Gallery folks and asked about the labels. They suggested a specific shop and I went and got a sheet of 80. When I got home Carol phoned and said she had some to give me, so off to their house. They were Avery so I thought I could pre-print initials and number them - and I managed that this morning! 1000! I had to run and get more while the printer waited to finish the job. But I was happy and went to the shop this aft and stickered until I was plumb stickered out. Tomorrow is our first day open and I am on duty so I can finish stickering.

Yesterday's glaze firing came out nicely and was added to the array. I bought a sander and sand paper, realizing the nice one I had may never re-surface and I need it now - to grind bottoms and clean a kiln shelf. The two pieces I played with - underglazes and clear glaze came out cute. I do not generally do cute... But I will see what kind of reaction they get. Would not doing more and trying different colours and "designs".

However, I worked hard yesterday and today my energy was low. I still have not thrown any pots this trip but lots else done.
