The show is postponed until next Saturday, October 15th. Sadly, Jeff and I won't be able to participate. We are committed to the "American Craft Week" celebration, here in Seagrove, as well as an appointment with a customer for a vessel sink.
We have had some beautiful weather here, leading up to the storm. Comfortably warm days with cooler nights. Great weather for doing all types of activities. In the studio, Jeff and I collaborated on a couple of vases as well as some larger cheese stones. I think the stones are going to look awesome with Jeff's texture on them.
I am also working on some small lidded jars. These will be a good size store coffee.
I started carving yesterday, but they really were a little too soft. I uncovered them this morning and hopefully I can finish them later today.
Cooler temps always inspire me to do some cooking that's more complicated than lighting the grill. First I made gnocchi. Mine isn't the most beautiful gnocchi, but it sure was delicious.
Next up was ravioli! I hadn't used my pasta machine in over 10 years. I have a ravioli attachment that I had never used. Last week I decided to give it a try.
It worked really well, but it makes very small ravioli, without a lot of room for filling. The filling was roasted butternut squash and it was delicious. The machine didn't allow for a good ratio of pasta to filling. I ended up filling and cutting half of them by hand. My pasta was a little dense. I couldn't find semolina flour at the grocery store so I used all purpose. If I can't find it locally, I may have to order it from Amazon. As soon as get semolina, I am making fettucini...with Alfredo sauce and grilled shrimp!
