Pottery yesterday was good. She started us two beginners on slab pottery and thought that the Swiss cheese plant leaf would be worth a go so I had a go.
As you can see, it's lying in a bowl mould to curve it up and once it's dried, it will need smoothing off and generally neatening up before firing.
For a first go, I think it will look OK and I loved doing it.
Less happily, I went online to book the course for next term and all the places were already taken. That was so disappointing and I was more than a bit gutted. I should have booked after last week when there were still places. Then I decided to do a Pollyanna and make the best of it. I went back into the site to see what other crafts they had on offer. Surely there would be something? Advanced Knitting? Crochet for the Cack-Handed? Sewing for the Elderly?
Guess what! They also do an evening pottery course and, joy of joys, there were still places. There's one less now as I booked right away. OK, it's Thursday evenings, it's not the same group of people and I will have to swap my Swimming World group to the Wednesday group on those evenings but it's nothing that can't be organised. And next time, I will book as soon as possible without any ifs, buts or maybes.
I'm so glad I looked.
Today I am meeting a lovely friend for coffee and a chat and then there's nothing much until tuition. The evening is taken up with a Governors' Meeting so it's just as well I'm feeling a bit better, isn't it?
Have a great day, whatever you have planned.
