I threw in an extra $2.90 and came away from Tree with 10- count 'em TEN new implements.
In spite of not knowing what some of them are called... there is a hole maker (for tea pots and such) 2 mini- ribbon tools (I'm trying to remember what the signs above the tools said!) a couple of medium sized... ribbon tools (?) and one large one. Also 2 new cool-ly shaped wooden styluses... stylusi... stylusees...? and a metal disc that my husband looked at mockingly. It cuts things. And scrapes. And... I've used the ones at the pottery studio so having one here seems like a good idea...
Now I really want to get that wedding dress done so I can do some pottery stuff with a clear conscience.
I also found a book called "Making Pottery With and Without the Wheel" at The White Cat Book Company Inc. (Quality Books, Bought, Sold & Exchanged... 129-B 2nd Ave N. Saskatoon...)
I was very excited about the book too. It looks like a really excellent resource.
And THEN to top it off, (after a wonderful pub lunch of fish and chips) I found an Ellis Peters book that I've been looking for, for over a year, at McNally Robinson.
What a good day.
And Hillary just asked if I wanted to play cards or something... and Micah's doing the dishes...
Can a day get any better?!
