Mini Class - Starfish

At the request of a student I will be teaching a mini class on starfish.
It's almost cruel to blog about it because right now the class is full.
But not to worry I will be teaching an under the sea class at WUB this fall and then here at Dream Fire too.
Next Tuesday June 26th in the morning ( to beat the heat)  we will be making starfish in many colors.I sold all my starfish so this is a pitiful  picture of one I donated to an ISGB all members show project.
We will be making much bigger and more beautiful starfish next Tuesday.
You never know when a mini workshop will pop up. I plan to have several mini workshops in August. So watch the website and the blog!
Stay cool and work your glass hot!

Deadlines and Commitments

Deadlines and Commitments that is what I have been up to this last week.
In my last post I admitted to putting off finalizing my Power Point for the ISGB Gathering.
After thinking about it and planning and getting the photographs ready( there is one below) .

Murrini and the inspiration
I got the 1st part of my ISGB Gathering presentation in the mail. My son helped me get everything looking good. He added the bells and whistles to make it pop. I say the 1st part because the second part will be filmed there. There are a few more deadlines this week and then I will be back at the torch from now until the Gathering. So many beads that need to be made!
Short a sweet this blog entry!

Oh Frit

I have been making Frit beads like a woman possessed
You know how sometimes you do something very productive just to avoid doing something else you really need to get done? Well I think I'm avoiding finalizing my Gathering Presentation. Or maybe just trying to beat the heat and get some beads made. Whatever it is I have certainly gotten some Frit beads made.

It was on my list of things to do..........about 200 beads in all.
It does show off what the Bullseye frit blends I have been making look like!
