What I did on my summer vacation...

The summer seems to have disappeared and I spent most of it hiding indoors trying to avoid the oppressive heat.  The last two weeks have been heaven.  We've been able to open the windows and doors and enjoy the fresh air.

I thought I had blogged more...LOL.  Guess not.  So now I will do a report on what I did on my "summer vacation".

Soon after Bead and Button, Cris and I headed down to the PMC conference in Kentucky.  It was great to meet up with people that I had only know on Facebook and to catch up with old friends.  I didn't take enough pics but here are some of the ones I have.

Cris and I...I think someone called us "The Twins"

Late in July my nephew Matt got married to Teresa. The weather broke that day and we had great weather.  It was a pretty wedding overlooking Lake Erie.

I love a wedding where you can go barefoot!!
I played with fast fire bronze....I know...I'm late to the party on that one.  I just haven't been able to make it work.  So I ran lots of test fire pieces.  I haven't found one temperature where I can get all the pieces in the kiln to sinter.  Either it sinters in the back and not in the front or it sinters in the front and bubbles up on the back.  Yikes.  So I'll continue to work at it.  I do have some of the new Goldie Bronze from Europe.  Hopefully I will get a change to work with that soon.
More later....I'm only half way through the summer...LOL.

Can't wait to see what you do with the Goldie Bronze.
