    Hi Lynnie, sorry didn't see your ? about clay. Yes I fire the clay, I keep a small kiln in my garage. I have had a small studio sized one for several years, it is smaller than a bushel basket. It is as important to me as my sewing machine. Funny how we get used to things. I have been busy with snowman heads and tiny stars this month, Fons & Porter has bought three of my designs, one of them is in the current issue they did such a great job with it, the next one will be published in a few weeks. I'm trying to stitch a few of them for presents this year. I have been making buttons for around 35 years, it is my passion!

    love the newest additions. so beautiful, really nice work!
    jean, I just love your buttons and pins. I used to do a lot of ceramics and such, taught for 6 yrs also.
    if I got a kiln, my dh would kill me with the electric. hopefully, i'll get you sometime as a swap partner. i'm back to fimo clay, much cheaper, but oh how I love the look of true firing. thanks for 'splaining to me.

    Jean, love all your work. we used to have a local business that sold the pins and things but they closed a few years ago. My sister wanted to get started but found the expense too much for her. will show her the pics and she will drool on my keyboard. yuck. see what you did! lol

    Yep, I'm surprised I haven't gotten you yet Lynnie! We could always do one after the holidays when things slow down. I have a good friend in Oregon (for 30 years!) and we exchange a little quilt every few months, do you paint?

    Cherrio, sometimes you can get a inexpensive kiln around colleges, because the kids don't want to move them. I only run my little kiln once every couple weeks, it runs on 110- so electric isn't that bad.

    even if i got it for nothing, i live on long island, our running joke is florida has gators, the midwest has tornados, california has earthquakes and we have lipa (long island power authority), and electricity is expensive here.
    Jean, maybe we can swap sometime. i've got my next few moths figured out and am in the process of making them now. had to take a break.
    did you all sign up for next month yet. it's posted. i've made roasted turkeys. have fun everyone
