I always use lead free glaze and high fire in my kiln for durability. All of my dishes are food, microwave & dishwasher safe. Each one is completely made by hand so each peice has its own unique handmade character and may be slightly different sizes and shapes.

My new summer Gray. It came our rather lovely I think! Friday morning after purchasing the powered dye I decided to dye 2 lbs. of my natural cotton canvas. (2 lbs. per package) A bit hesitant, for I HATE to waste fabric, and I had no idea if this would work and if I would like the NEW color......and I did. Voila!!!! The finished product.....my 3 ruffled canvas bag!!!!
|From Natural Canvas ........to a very urban look! Industrial Gray!|

The Essential Tool.....my scissors! These small gold handled scissors are the best to use right next to your sewing machine. I have tried many, these are the best. I bit difficult to find. For you sewers out there, if your husband loves to go to boat shows, you can usually find these small scissors at a VERY reasonable price as compared to a fabric store....nice tip!
|Did you know....? Scissors and shears are functionally equivalent, but larger implements tend to be called shears.|
