It's rather like cooking a souffle - you can't open the oven to check the progress or everything falls apart. I don't have a peephole or window in my kiln (I've been wanting one, but $ isn't there). So it's an unknown until I open the door. Either I will have a nicely fused 4x4 square of 3-layer glass, or I will have a serious puddle on the floor of my kiln which won't make me happy at all. I still have one more piece to fuse before I can start the next stage. I'm crossing my fingers that my fusing program had accurate times and temps for the complicated program that I input.
I'm caught up on writing challenges, so I can either spend my mornings working on art or beadwork, or I can continue working more chapters of my Original Female Character. She's been very well received by my fellow writers and is turning into a very popular character. I have a good book that I'm in the process of reading all - that's probably where my efforts will go today. I'm too tired to expend a great deal of energy. 24 Hours and Counting until the Royal Wedding.
