I am gearing up for the Carolina Pottery Festival this weekend in Shelby. I look forward to the show, because potters have told me it is a great show. It has been three weeks since the last show and I have sold some pieces from the boxes and had to reorganize and repack, plus price, photograph and pack all the new pieces. My studio looks much more organized now. Yesterday I made vases. It took two sessions, one early morning, one late evening to finish the pieces because the rain from Ida slows the drying process down. Today it is pouring out, so I won't get much done today either. Maybe I will go shopping today between sessions.
