good morning

it really is fall, y'all!  I've been working really hard on getting my work ready for my slate of fall sales.  I am so grateful that I found an assistant (with the help of several friends- networking is just the best way to fill needs, isn't it?) to help me with my production.  She's been busy rolling slabs and setting up molds for my platters and trays and helping me glaze.  Still, I wish there were three of each of us to crank the work out.

I am really excited to tell you about my dear friend Debi, who will be showing with me in November at my Studio Sale.  She makes the most darling pins and accessories out of upcycled wool sweaters that she rescues from thrift stores, felts, deconstructs, and refashions.  I am SO excited that Sweaterlove will be showing with me.  She'll also be at the Whitton Farms event on October 21.  I really have a hard time not buying every new thing she makes.  This red mum usually lives on my winter coat- it is the exact same shade of red and I feel like a floral little red riding hood when I wear it.

Today I'm buying pumpkins and pansies, making these and some tortilla soup, starting our first fire of the season, and doing a little ornament glazing.  Hope you have a lovely weekend.
