I finished decorating the canister set and unloaded the electric kiln with all the bisqueware. Tomorrow the jars go in. Must remember to call the propane company so next week I'll have enough for a glaze firing. slowly, slowly, I'm getting back on schedule. tonight--the woodstove feels pretty good.
