Well, the kiln has no cure. But it can go onward as is as long as I can put up with it. When it goes south, it will go south quick, but is totally usable until then, as long as I ignore what temperature it SAYS it is. I think I found the right temp for my glass, so I can keep working with the kiln. It is in perfect condition, save for the control board. The brains. Yuck. But at least it’s not dead. I can use it and keep on keepin’ on.
My straws are selling very well. This is good. Practical item, not like jewelry. Which is also selling pretty well, even in this economy. I can’t complain.
I got a used drill press which will allow me to do a LOT more with metals in my work. Yay.
Today is Copper River Salmon day. Once a year we splurge on the really good stuff, both since it is so good, and also to support wild caught salmon as an industry vs. farmed. We buy wild whenver we can. So dinner tonight will be yummy. When Derek wakes we will walk to the store that has it, and he can have a cookie. Then back home and run around, I guess.
Tomorrow I get stitches out of my thumb. Yay. And I need to finish a large straw order, and take photos of the straw carrying cases, and make dinner, and…and…
it’s good to be busy.
This weekend, since the kiln issue is as resolved as it is going to be, I am going to set up my new torch. Finally. I am looking forward to that!
