I have been still making and decorating and trying to dry pots and firing and trying to get orders dried and ready for Christmas and trying to not sit by the fire drinking tea for too long each day (which is very hard work). The plate above is about 16″ diameter and has lots of dots, you can see them better in the close up picture further down. It’s one of those things that I start and then wonder whether it was a good idea but by then of course it’s too late and carry on I must.
We’ve had lots of weather recently. Just about everything you can think of. Last week I didn’t ride in to work once, I’ll ride through lots of weather as it’s such a short distance but we had gales that even in the van knocked me across the road, we had sheet ice the whole way and we had snow snow thick blizzardy snow.
Of course the snow day I walked in and might have decorated some / most of the road. I got caught this time though, I think it’s the first time I’ve ever been caught doing it by a stranger, oops, funny though. On my way home I noticed that someone (Hazel was that you?) had been joining in, I like that, collaborative road decorating.
I’ve a couple more big platters to slip this week, and some puzzle jugs to put together and some parcels to pack and get away, maybe some slips to sieve and then I think that’ll be about me for the year after all that. Phew!
