"They say the waiiaiaiting is the hardest part..."

























Waiting.
Waiting.
Waiting for the Kiln to cool...
I almost feel like I jinx it by posting this...
However... what's done is done.
So... I want to post some photos when this new batch comes out...

I have a whole new plan for my display going forward.
Starting with just a few things for these small set ups I am doing... but I can expand.
Found a good folding shelf that the reviews on quality were strong and the price was decent. So I bought a few(they are stack-able possibly but) at this point it's a table top deal and I will use a 6 foot table with.... these new WHITE shelves and a creamy burlap fabric...Its the real deal burlap... a little bit of shedding, but hopefully... that won't be a big issue... I want a neutral natural(?) hip look and I am looking forward to working with the white and cream as background colors... made some displays with the burlap on some white easel frames to hang pendants, etc... I figure, It has that natural look so smudges of dirt won't be a biggie and where I cut the ends...I will just pull the threads away to give it a bit of a fringe...
I had this idea last night at 12:30am... and went and purchased the stuff today...
so we shall see...

I'm sure the kiln is still only at 500 degrees now...
so...
*twiddling of thumbs*
I will wait.
Grrrr.
