Oh, and I'm going to tell you about my stupidity here too. You know how things happen in a split second and you feel really stupid after. Well, as I was getting my stuff together in the back room where the pottery wheels are, I went from one wheel to another checking to see if they were all working (all of them don't). Well, some had the heavy pottery chairs sitting on top of them upside down and some didn't. As I went from one to another, turning on the switch to turn on the wheel, the first 2 didn't work. The third however did... and that one had a chair on top of it that immediately flung off and hit me smack in the middle of my forehead. Not a really bad hit... but enough to surprise the heck out of me and wonder if I was going to have an egg on my noggin. No one else was back there... so luckily no one saw my act of stupidity.
Today I was back in the studio trimming the pots. With no class on Monday due to Labor Day, it puts me a day short for finishing the next 20. Now I know people who are so good at throwing that they could probably throw all 30 in a day.... but that's not me. But if it's a matter of practice, practice, practice, then I'm more than willing to put the time (and the clay) in. BTW, I don't have a bruise in the middle of my forehead... just a sore spot that DH says is a bit flat (?), but luckily not noticeable.
