i posted about these guys back in december. it took several trips to my friend tania's studio to finish them. she brought them to me on the day of larkin's party. i am so happy with them. i had no idea what to expect from the final firing. i was worried that they would be streaky, but i managed to get good coverage. did i mention how much i love them? i also made this serving dish.
no, it is not for serving flowers, but i had to showcase the gorgeous ones that larkin picked out for me at the grocery the other night. he is so sweet. i think i may be hooked on the ceramics thing. i mean, i really enjoyed it. i hope tania will let me come and play again soon.
i am also happy to report that lucy's easter dress is almost complete. i can hardly wait to post pictures. the dress almost got the best of me today. i have put zippers in plenty of items, but for some reason i thought this one was going to kill me. i had to take it out several times. i had decided to just take it to my aunt to get her to help me with it (read do it for me). but, after a nice break from the zipper, i came back into the room and decided not to follow the directions, and instead do it my way (thanks, nancy). and what do you know...it worked! i believe the key was the hand-basting instead of machine basting of the zipper. hand work really is so very rewarding. so stay tuned for the finished product!
