After finishing the postcards it was time to clean up. But then I got distracted again.
First I found this length of Timtex in my cabinet and decided to fuse it to some Mistyfuse and make a stash of postcard blanks. That way I’ll be ready anytime I want to make them for the next few months. Then I was putting then away and found some of my sunprints.
Why not go ahead and get some ready for stitching. The leaf prints are great cards for our Airbnb guests. The trees are from a sunprint I did a couple of years ago. I have an idea for these that might even work for Christmas cards for next year.
Plus about 50 fused blank cards to use later! I think I’m set for a while.
Next, I needed to clean up the glass table in the basement. It was piled high with stuff I’ve brought home from my classes the fall and new things I’ve bought.
I kiln washed my new molds and pre-fired the new kiln shelf.
I cleaned up the new kiln dams.
They came from this. This is a great story. I got these broken pieces when I bought my new kiln shelf. The store gave them to me free. But I needed to get them cut. I posted on our local FB page to see if anyone had a tile saw and would cut them for me. Only one person responded. She turned out to be relatively new to Montpelier and offered to cut them for me. Once I arrived at her home it took all of 45 seconds for the word “quilt” to come up. She proceeded to delegate the cutting to her husband and took me straight to her quilt room! She also makes soap and does mosaic. I think I have a new member for Country School Quilters and a new friend.
After all that cleaning and straightening it was finally time to do something fun. I got out one of the glass bar sets and started playing.
Now that everything is straightened up I seem to have my mojo back.
But first let’s enjoy Christmas. I’m taking the rest of the week off. I’ll see you back here Monday. Have a wonderful holiday!
