Gone Fishing? (Tailgating)

The various relatives used to go tailgating before a big football or soccer game.  Do people still do that?

My kind of Tailgating is off in a grassy area under some big old oak trees, and under cute little canopies...with tables of pottery...and eatables, and other crafts...all local.

Support the local economy.  You probably already make an effort to do that. 

Yep, there's another of my new wall-pillows...and I've got 6 more thrown that are smaller and white clay.

This is a mid-way done shot of the glazing process for a plate.  Much more slip-trailing to be done...and remember the glazes will darken down with firing.  Just thought I'd tease you!

    1. Thanks Linda. I forgot to ask you how your sales went...and read about them over on your blog. Me too!

  2. This sounds like my kind of tailgating. I never could see the attraction of a cook out in a parking lot!
    Your wall pillows are beautiful!

    1. It was a great day (weather absolutely fabulous mountain summertime) and good newcomers in the area. Thanks for your compliment.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
