Hey! I'm Still Here!

So, I just realized that I have not posted here in like a month.  Oops.  And I haven't sewn anything in that time either.  Double oops.  Well, I have two reasons for that.  One is that I have been trying to improve my wheel throwing skills in ceramics, and in order to do so I have had to put in a lot of time.  Throwing does not come natural to me, and it has taken quite a lot of work for me to get better.

The other sewing preventer is the fact that I have had to change my eating habits again (last time I realized I could no longer eat gluten.  ugh.) and I have been  slowly but surely getting smaller. Although that could change.  I would like my weight to stabilize before I get super busy sewing again.  However, I do need some shirts, so there should be some projects come up.

Mostly right now, I want to step back and think about my wardrobe as a whole and form a loose plan for what I really want it to be.  So for a little while, my posts should be geared around wardrobe thoughts and shirts.  Also bad pictures of ceramics.

Here are a couple of things I've made this quarter that I love.  There is no sunshine in Seattle right now, so these are the best I can do.  I think I'm gonna get my photographer friend to help me take some better pictures eventually.

It's great to have so many things you're good at.

Those are very pretty. DS wants to learn pottery making. Really, why should a blog be reduced to fibercrafts? Keep showing everything you're creatively making!

I've never tried throwing pottery--it looks like magic to see something appear on the wheel!
