Looks like I'll be back soon

I know, I know, I've been totally baby obsessed and have only touched clay once in the last 4 months.

Unfortunately, my twins miscarried at the age of 18 weeks and 6 days.  I'm still in the throws of woes but it looks like pottery is back on the agenda. 

I don't currently have a job.  The work I was doing before the pregnancy was winding down because of the upcoming difficulties in camera lifting equipment while pregnant with twins and because of the possibility of going on bedrest at any given moment.

These are no longer issues.  Since I don't have a day to day job right now, I need to keep busy.  And since I didn't really do any pottery during the pregnancy, that's something I can do that I won't associate with my sadness.

So while I hunt for a regular job, I'll be spending a good portion of my days furiously making mugs so I can have a very full shop for holiday season 2011.

So I'm sorry to have left you all for so long but it's time for Buster and me to get back to business!

Any requests?

Oh Alex I am so sorry to hear you lost the twins, which doesn't even begin to cover it. (((Hugs))

As far as requests, I have none, except, allow yourself to grieve and take care of yourself.

Although butter crocks can be wildly popular. The old fashioned ones where you put the butter in and it sits inside basically a bowl of cold water to keep the butter from going rancid in the summer and still allowing you to have soft butter.
