Festival artists have a love/hate relationship with weather. The forecast for this past weekend at Bethesda Row was for steady wind and gusts up to 40 mph. Which means a serious stress-out in the days leading up to the show. I was cursing the forecast. Wind is the worst enemy of pottery. But as the dawn arrived on Saturday, the wind did not. In fact, the weather was glorious. Sunny and warm, with cool breezes. The angled sunlight of autumn, and falling leaves that were turning color. It was beautiful. In the end I was cheering the weather. Now I have a different problem. I sold a lot more pottery than I was expecting. So this is all the inventory I have left, and all the holiday shows are coming up. Plus four wholesale orders, which need to ship for the holidays too. But I'm not going to start worrying about this until tomorrow.
