"After the departure of the land parties, I embarked with six men on thursday, the 21st april, on board my newly made boat and began the descent of the river." ~ William Henry Ashley

Alright, so I have no idea what that quote is about, but it fits because this past Thursday (when I was supposed to post this) it was the 21st of April!!  I tried to load the pictures on Thursday night, it took forever, I fell asleep and then forgot the rest of the weekend.  Soooo, here they are!!!

So, in anticipation of Easter coming up I made some bunnies with the flower cutting wheel!
 There is even a butterfly in the top left, so cute and spring-y!
 I took it home this weekend and filled it with a little loose candy for the holiday.
 Which looked really good until boys came over and ate it all in one night!  

I also did some fish on the flower cutting wheels.  I was practicing for this big bowl I made which reminds me of a gold fish bowl.  I tried a couple of different fish types:
 That kind with neon stripes through their tiny bodies.
 And the big, pretty, fighting Beta!
 I like them all, so maybe I will do one of each on my bowl, but I think they need gills still.

Then in the hot shop I had made this BIG, awesome bowl!! It has the rim made with the cup of color technique I tried to explain last time.  It turned out really good and I am very pleased :)
 I am going to try to find a way to get this guy back to the states I like it so much :)
I put a "klapp" on it it which is like a Swedish foot or "klack" but it is thinner and you grind it off in the cold shop, so that is why it is sitting a bit sideways, it will be straight soon!

After school on Thursday I went for a cookout at the big lake to get our long weekend (4 days off) kicked off right.  The weather has been perfect, I have eaten my weight in grilled sausages and have a very pink glow to my skin.  I even went swimming it was so warm!!!  But, I will tell you more later :)  Hope you all had a good Easter too!!!
