Run-Around Sue …

Up, down and run around – just call me ‘Sue’ … or Crazy.  What a week!  Started on Monday, with a middle of my sleep-time doctor’s appointment.  Back and forth we went 3 times this week (more in a minute) … 

And in between?  We (ok, actually Olivia) had puppies!  Some 16 hours of (well deserved) drama and labor through Tuesday, and we have 8 new family members.  Mom and pups are doing great.  We (all) finally got some sleep on Wednesday.

fat-happy-danceJust in time for more appointments …  I endured poking, smooshing and stabbing this week – and, I’m proud to say, I never hurt anyone!  AND … [fingers crossed] it looks like the only weight I’ll be losing in the near future was the chunk taken out for biopsy.  I’m [fat and] HAPPY!!!  I’ll be happier when the very early AM appointments finally stop, but I think it’s coming …

So, I had just a few stolen hours in the studio.  I played with stamping images on glass with some success.  I think I may use these as component pieces.

Played with a few of my molds, so now have the coffin-kiln loaded up with step one fusing of what I hope will be sweet iridescent platters … we’ll see.

I’ll leave with my fully fused vitri-fusaille tiles … patiently [NOT!] waiting for DH to frame …

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
