Coffee in the Alaska skyline mug, "Mandolin Rain" by Bruce Hornsby on iTunes. The song is the random play selection from iTunes and it couldn't be more appropriate. Fay continues to dump water and grey skies on Atlanta--great for the garden but reminds me why I couldn't live in Seattle.
Today my glass comes from Bullseye and I couldn't have made it any longer without it. I ended up not firing yesterday as the only sheets of clear irid I have left are a few extra wide pieces that I like to save for 20" round pieces. No glass to cut means no pieces to fire. This morning I'll pack to ship everything I got done over the weekend while I wait for the delivery. As soon as it gets here, I'll unload the cases (undoubtedly in the rain) so I can cut and fire two fuse loads--Bettina gets to go out for her first fuse spin today.
I have another try for my Niche piece in Middle Ground, but even without looking at it I've decided I don't like the colors I chose and I want to do it again. Tick tock, tick tock, the clock counts down to the Saturday postmark deadline.
The new school schedule is giving all of us a jump on pour days. It's only 8:00 and I've already finished my post and am ready to get dressed and slosh to the studio!
