Today was my first day back in the hotshop since covid started. It is amazing how rejuvenating something so hot and physically tiring can be! I didn’t go in with any goals except to explore, play, have fun and see what happens. Muscle memory is an amazing thing and I was pleased to see that after a year it all comes back. While I didn’t save much, I worked in clear glass mainly and got back into the swing of things. I also played around with my stamps a lot. I hardly spoke and was in my head problem solving and seeing what I could do, then improve on or try a different way. It was just what I needed! Heading back next week.
