The blooming car blew up again this weekend - boo, more money down the drain. Oh well, all I can do is try and stay positive. Pretty tired today, had a gig on Saturday night, playing to a barn full of hippies and didn't get home until 4am - can't take the pace like I used to.

I got all the dinner plates and side plates decorated today. That's the main parts of the dinner service completed. Now I have to hope to get a matching set of six of everything through. There are actually three different designs, but they're all decorated with the same technique and will be glazed the same, so it'll be a mix and match service, rather than six of the same - I thought it would be more interesting that way. The first pieces are in the bisc kiln tonight.

Busy times in the countryside, the last few days have been beautiful sunshine, so the farmers are out in force making hay. I draw a lot of inspiration from the lines in the fields, made by the combine and the plough.
