Nine Ten a Big Fat Hen

   I started to sew fabric strips together for Bart and Molly crochet rag rug. I believe it was the 2nd ball I was working on.
For some odd reason I was having trouble with my sewing machine holding a stitch. The "take up leaver" came on threaded. I haven't brought out the big swear words quite yet. I was wondering if I has going to end up buying a new machine.
Well once I found the take up leaver came  un-threaded it was good to go, once I got fixed.

I didn't have any time to work on the basement. I move some water jugs over just encase I have to rearrange some firewood that is use for making kindle.
I have three boxes of paper to go though from the old shed out on the bench. Not sure what my work schedule is like tomorrow. If it raining and I don't go to work it would be a good day to go though it.

Murphy and I clean out the chimney and haven't yet started a fire.

This afternoon it was our local "Earth Base Faith" Spairfitera coffee and chat. We meet once a month usual right before the new moon.
For some reason we lost count of moon and had it afterwards. But it seem to be a lot of joyful laughter among us all.
Statement time....I get tired of stupid people who think an earth base faith is taking part in devil worship and is out to do evil.
It the farthest thing from the truth.
Me personal I believe we are hear on earth to learn and teach. and we have a responsiblity to be STEWARDS OF THE EARTH not DOMINATE OVER THE WORLD and force people in believe in same political or religious sect.

Well I talk my self out of a candy bar. When I got done with our coffee and chat. I had to get a few items. I kept telling my self I need to go down the candy ideal and get a candy bar. I kept telling my self ok if your going to get a candy bar. Your going buy something under 1.5 ounces. I figure it would take me to long to fine it.
So I end up not buying a candy bar.
Well for a sweet I want to try one of there new hot fudge sundies, there only a $1.00.
But eating today seem to be on track. BLT sandwich, lunch a piece of toast, cold chicken leg, and salad with pomegranate dressing.
Then for dinner it was pork chop with redue Mushroom gravy, green beans, and rice. Also I consider this snack food. I stuff some peanut and dried pears in my mouth.

As for what I did in ceramic shop. I believe life is a on going lesson. A few things I would do different in my shop.
I would charge a chair and table fee. $3.00 per person which would cover coffee or tea, open instruction for projects, cleaning tool, brushes, paper products, and soaps.
Reason for the three buck charge I had people come in to my shop and never purchase a thing and sit there and drink coffee.
For the $3.00 it only good for 3 1/2 hours. I'll open three section of open class time. One night a week from 5:30 to 9:00 PM, One afternoon from 12:30 to 4:00, and then a morning section 9:30 to 1:00
If  3 or more people want to come in and work on ceramics. I will rent chair and table space for seventy five cent an hour per person.
Have cubbie hole space so people can rent them as they work on projects.
The price will range from $3.60 to $5.40 a month. This will help me keep people project straight and organize. There people who have finish piece and spend good money and never pick up there pieces. For those who don't want to rent a space they can haul there items back in forth.
Rent out paint. Lot of my paint dried out and actual ceramic paints goes a long way. So for my acrylics, underglazes, and glazes. I would charge 50% of what I charge for greenware, same price of one and two firings. If a piece of greenware ran $3.00 then I would charge a $1.50 to use the shop paints.
One needs to have bounds in life and I never had any bounds when I had my ceramic shop and there people who thought it was a free ride.

                                                                               Coffee is on



  1. Well, thanks for the coffee. I would be one of the bums as I'm not artistic and would not be doing ceramics.

  2. in honor of your earth based faith, i just voted for the green party in our federal election.
