My golf stroke counter is on the bottom right. This is a great treasury especially since the Ryder Cup was this weekend, too bad the Americans lost. They seemed to have fun though and that's what matters most.
CLAY CAMP IN PRESCOTT, ARIZONA
Last week our clay guild spent 4 days in Prescott at a Christian Youth Camp doing clay from 7 in the morning till 10 at night. This was our first year at this camp and it was wonderful.
This is the building where 24 of us spent our days doing clay. The food at this place was tremendous. Last year we had gray pancakes for breakfast one morning, this year we had home made banana bread, waffles, scrambled eggs, strawberry compote. I ate so much breakfast I didn't go to lunch but dinner was like eating at a 5 star restaurant. The deserts were fresh and the car was heavier when we came home. LOL.
There were many demos and people shared things they were doing. We blew a few fuses with our ovens but we did ok. I shared a big round table with my friend Judy and we made a mess but we had a lot of fun. We worked on different techniques like flower canes, spliced canes, metal working, wire wrapping. I finished more this year than I ever have.
These are some spliced cane beads that I made and finally put it into a bracelet.
THE MOUSE FROM HELL
We had a little visitor at camp, I think he was just a baby but he caused a lot of screaming and we had to put all the food away at night and everyone was worried that he was going to eat their clay. We had one guy in our group who has a heck of a sense of humor. One night after everyone left he did this:
It got baked and is going back to the guild with us. Thanks Brad.
There's a huge storm coming and I think I need to turn the computer off. Will continue another time.
Had a great time at camp and want to thank everyone for their contributions and donations.
