Pottery update

Once again, it's been a while.   I have been working on pottery every available moment while getting ready for the Carlisle Country Craft and Old-Fashioned Market Mercantile.

Here's a bit of what I have been up to:

 Yarn bowls

 Some colourful pieces

Loads of buttons - glazed both sides this time.

And the odd pod here and there.

Plus, I'm trying to improve my photography skills.
