And an even colder second day




We had very light snow flurries last night, then occasional flakes falling most of the day. And by the time we closed down Sunday at 4 p.m., the temperature outside was about 26 F. and in the studio about 40. And, of course, I was the one in the studio by the open door, greeting everyone who arrived.
It was a very good weekend. Sunday was, as usual, less frenetic than Saturday, but this was perhaps the busiest Sunday I can remember for this show. Lots more work went out the door, much more food was consumed and I think by the time we closed the doors everyone was happy with the weekend. And today we got to see three of the other local potters who also had one-day shows yesterday. Anne Halpin, Kim Medeiros and Sarah Caruso showed up this afternoon to have a chile dog and talk about their own shows.
Maybe we'll do it again next year.
