Fresh from the HaldeKiln

 Two for one! I fired the kiln on Thursday, and spent Thursday and Friday cleaning enough greenware to fire the kiln next Thursday, going ahead and loading it up on Friday after unloading it... forgetting that we were having a dinner party on Sunday night and that my kiln would need to be moved. Well, there's not too much more that I don't like to do than unloading and unfired kiln, so... I went ahead and bisque fired yesterday.  I unloaded it this morning, and let's just say that my shop is where yarn bowls must come to die. Back...

 I was finished glazing a lot of things, so thought... why wait until Thursday to fire?  A couple of new things in this round, including the Owl in a Tree mug, the stackable owl cup, and both a turtle-inside and a frog-inside mug in a new color. Then there were a couple planter restocks, and some yarn bowls that I'll be listing in another week or so (I have more I want to put in a firing, and then add them all at once).  Thanks, y'all!
