Ring around the blackberry brandy

Yesterday I woke up sick for what feels like the 50th time within the past few months. I can go years without catching anything and then it seems I can't go weeks without catching everything. The great thing about being sick is that I get to sleep whenever I want. The other great thing about being sick is that I can drink blackberry brandy whenever I want and claim that it is for medicinal purposes. At this very moment I am sipping my brandy and thinking about going back to sleep.

Being sick, however, doesn't mean that I am being a total slacker. OK, so I haven't done any dishes (nothing new) and I haven't cleaned up after myself (also nothing new) but I have managed to work on some new porcelain rings. I have been mulling this design over in my head for a while and finally decided to just do it. I hand-built them a few days ago and today they were dry enough for me to do a little sanding and refining. Hopefully they will be bisque fired this weekend and I can get around to glazing them right away. Once I have fleshed an idea out I am very impatient to see the finished product.

Time for more sleep. And possibly more brandy. :)

The rings are beautiful, can't wait to see what they look like glazed. Have fun with the blackberry brandy!

Feel better Sis! We've all had it too. We have a bottle of blackberry brandy in the cupboard - maybe I should try that! We have already gone through a couple bottles of NyQuil.
