A crummy weekend work-tour; a mandatory in-service that outlines dreaded documentation changes coming my way*. Add lots of angry kiln-Gods in the studio recently, and it sure would be easy to feel blue. Nope, I’ve got a date with my youngest daughter. Yep … A wild night out on the town – or, plans to take in a movie with Little Sis.
*Umm … thank you, JCAHO … ?!? I’m not sure why you hate through-put and customer service, but I’m certain dragging a computer around with me everywhere I go while scanning patients like they are PRODUCE(!) is the answer to good care …
Studio news – if at first you don’t succeed: My crackle powder designs are struggling. [I don’t want to talk about it – yet!] So, I moved ahead. Then, my ‘heart’ order had a bizarre reaction – silver/gray SPLOTCHES everywhere. WTH? OK, shake it off – so, I made more. And, my No Days Powder Wafer film arrived: After some trial and error, I figured out how to make it work with my ‘spensive vinyl plotter (CE5000). I will be busting out my Eclips, as I think it may work better. [Baby steps – tune in next week …]
In between funk and frustration, I played with my first Kumihimo. Hmm, I like it. Simple and mindless, while keeping hands busy during TV (or audio-book) time. Next up, more challenging designs – ‘cuz, I have books!
And, I finally fired a few of my less exciting pebble tiles – the ‘shanks’. I love these two! I’ll be playing with this technique again … along with pattern-bar/wet-saw ideas! [More to come, I’m certain!]
