A REALLY FUN HOT DAY
Yesterday my friends Carol, Judy and Evelyn took me out to lunch for my birthday even though it was August 22nd. I was in Chicago on my birthday and yesterday was the first day we could all get together.
It was 109 outside and very humid but we dragged ourselves to The Cheesecake Factory and had a wonderful lunch. Before I left for Chicago, Evelyn bought me a beautiful purple suitcase that spins and expands, it is awesome.
My dear friend Carol hasn't been doing clay very long but she always did earth clay and she was an incredible sculptress (I think that's what you call a woman sculptor). She came over one day with these pendants that she had made and you could have knocked me over with a feather. She gave me one for my birthday and it was my favorite one.
I have a new extruder that I got from a place called Lucy Clay in Czechoslovakia. I'm hoping to try it today and I'll let you know how it works tomorrow with pictures.
