We’re off to see the Wizard …

Yoda Kei and I went to the vet today … to have him checked out and see if there’s anything more that I could/should be doing.  We both ‘passed’ … I’m being a good home-dog-nurse/surrogate-mother and he’s doing well.  He weighed in at 7 ounces.  I put him a good 2 weeks (developmentally) behind his siblings … so we’ll see.  I’ve added Nutra-cal to his formula – just trying to pack in the calories.

After one of his feedings today, he started licking at my thumb, which is great!  I’m hoping within the next week or so we can (successfully) introduce gruel – but don’t want to push his little immature body too quickly.  So we’re still doing ‘a day at a time’ …

Meanwhile – I did get those pictures taken of my finished bowls … now to resize and upload to the shops  … my butt is going numb just thinking about it.

And the marble ‘full fuse’ experiment was a flop … they’re different COE’s, so the glass is breaking, but this is what I found in the kiln … even if they weren’t breaking – they aren’t pretty. Sad smile  I may try it again, just for completeness sake, making sure I just tack fuse them …


About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
