So it's been three days with the cast on my foot. Wow...what a challenge.
And during those few days the neighborhood is being overrun by sheep on the lam (punny huh?). Well maybe not overrun (there are only 2 at the moment). At least I have a good excuse not to volunteer on the roundup.
I'm able to work at about 50%...funny how hobbling along with just a couple of pounds of padding, foam and fiberglass can be such a significant anchor. The only really insurmountable challenge is throwing pots on my potter's wheel.
The control pedal is on the right side of the wheel...sort of like the gas pedal on the car. I can't bend my ankle to control the speed...and that power cord from the wheel to the pedal...too short to use on the left side. I think my Dr. would have a cow if he thought I was getting the cast dirty.
There is a fair amount of bacteria that can be found in clay...I'm not risking an infection in my foot.
With a month to go until we get into the plane for trip to the TNNA Summer Show in Cleveland, we are bearing down on all things TNNA. We have a couple of new products (pictures by the end of the week), new colorways and today we decided to move forward with a new kit. We just can't help ourselves.
Managing projects is a big part of what Brenda does for us...I mean I make the stuff, but Brenda, she's the one that keeps it all moving in the right direction. She funnels all the bits through the process...
...like the 1600+ pieces that are being made for TNNA...seriously...over 1600.
