Last week Jeff and I worked like crazy to prepare for the Celebration of Spring Studio Tour. We cleaned the studio and the gallery as well as catching up on lots of yard work.
We had a much better turn out for the tour this year compared the dismal event of 2016. Sales were up dramatically, almost catching up to what they were when we were at the log cabin. I demonstrated carving vases throughout the weekend. Jeff did some throwing demonstrations.
Saturday was perfect weather. Sunday was very rainy, but people still came out to see the potters.
My flowers sort of took a beating in the rain. If you look closely you can see that the birdbath is filled to capacity.
The hosta, on the other hand, thrived with all this rain.
When I opened the studio on Saturday morning, this luna moth was hanging out on the outside wall, near the front door. It stayed all day to greet visitors. I took it as a sign of good luck.
