Wonderful Saturday

Had a wonderful day at pottery class yesterday! I was so happy to be doing better and to be advancing. However, one of my INSTRUCTORS actually had a hard time yesterday. That's kind of how it goes. Some days you can "throw like a dream" and other days it's hard to concentrate and the clay seems to have a mind of its own.

I was very nervous when my pastor asked me to do a communion set for our church, but yesterday helped me feel like I might actually be able to do it with God's help. Yes, I did think of Philipians 4:13. Just kicking around some ideas about the design. Would like to do some type of carving.

p.s. The first picture is upsidedown because I threw the stem parts of the goblets today (which are done upsidedown). Here's a Simon Leach video about goblets if anyone's interested.

p.p.s. Hey, I sent Simon Leach an email this morning, and he just sent me one back from Spain! Cool!

The goblets are beautiful! Can't wait to see them all finished.

have you seen the leather wrapped pen holder at church? maybe we could go in to biz together for the fall show? (i keep forgetting to show you it at church and ask.)
