I do believe that it is spring!

The snow is gone, and it's such a relief to be able to load and unload the kiln without freezing. I don't think I have ever gotten as much pottery fired during the winter before. We have robins calling, and on my way to and forth from Wausau today the raptors were very much out shopping for supper.
I'm getting ready for a craft show the weekend of April 10th in Onalaska WI at the Omnicenter. Plus working for summer inventory at the studio. Soon we can start opening on weekends. Always wonderful to see who will be stopping by.

Back from a wonderful Quilting Retreat!!

Every once in a while we all need to go off and do something that feeds the soul and your heart. This past weekend, (Thursday night on) my daughter Amanda and I (with baby Andrew) enjoyed the Spring Retreat (Cabin Fever Retreat) organized by Roseann of Rosebud's cottage of White Bear Lake MN. About 30 quilters descended upon the Best Western of Eau Claire WI and enjoyed lots of quilting, shopping and sharing. A good way to recharge after the winter. And with the warm weather, it was nice to notice the snow almost gone from Thursday til Sunday on our trip back to Neenah WI.

March Sunny Sunday

It is a beautiful day, the kiln will get reloaded (how I love this mild weather) and I must start packing to head to the Spring Quilt retreat which is sponsored by Rosebud's Cottage of White Bear Lake MN. I'm taking some special mugs along to tempt the ladies with!
Amanda and I (plus baby Andrew) will enjoy the quilter's dream life of unlimited sewing and conversation. No dishes to do, no meals to cook!!
Oh well, back to the pottery for now.
