Well- sort of!!
The Carpenter has gone off to see The Wizzard, taking both laptops to be finished..one needs something taking off, and both need things added. There is also the matter of some cycle polo playing in Manchester as well!
Thursday was kiln unpacking day and organising myself for the following two days...
Four of us had a long productive day yesterday, tidying and preparing the salt kiln for a firing. I was mainly helping to glaze pots. Now I have to make more ready for the firing after that!
We'll be packing the kiln next week. It was really good working with friends instead of everyone beavering away alone. Fresh hot Hot Cross Buns were brought by other friends at teatime...no butter needed!!
Today the rain held off and Usk Farmers Market went really well. We had most of the local regulars, plus many visitors.
My takings were good, mainly thanks to a couple of American (USA) customers...who appreciate the meaning and value of hand made, local and farmers' markets!!
Next job is to give the workshop a sort out and decide on the next list for making.
