Cauliflower

The cauliflower is in the mustard family (I did not know that) and it is considered a herb. It is said to have a whiteish underdeveloped “flower” with a large edible head. Gotta love online dictionaries.

Today Jessee and I drove to Rockville for the first meeting of the newly formed D.C. Craft Mafia. It was such a nice lunch with some great gals. It was really great to see Tina + Jeff again. They brought their twin babies who everytime I have ever seen them are so happy + smiley. Today was no exception, full of smiles.. they really are wonder-parents!

There is this great group on Flickr called Corners of my home It is so much fun to go through all the photos. I am going to upload some of my own soon. The above two photos were taken in my kitchen. Gotta love Ebay for fun goodies like the plastic pots + pans with faces. Best part is when I won the auction I had no idea they were so large. The auction didn’t include anything about demensions, so I had assumed they would be little. I was very pleasantly surprised!

The second photo is a shelf that hangs in the kitchen. We originally purchased it for holding spices, but the toys have taken over and forced the spice jars into the cupboard!

Video Killed The Radio Star..

A television set rounded out the last of the plush for the Gallery 1988 show. They are all boxed and waiting now to be shipped. These photos are not the best, sorry. I wanted to hurry and get everything packed and ready to go, and the light early this morning wasn’t the best.

A few things about the t.v. #1 He is sad because well, the whole “video killed the radio star” thing has him feeling pretty down. I mean honestly, if you were accused of killing off radio stars, you’d be crying too. #2 See the silver metallic stuff on the antenna …its supposed to be tinfoil. I wanted something a little more shiney, but couldn’t find anything that pleased me locally…so I had to settle for the slightly dull silver you see there. #3 I photographed it, boxed it up, and realized I had forgotten something..the cord! Ha, well I suppose this is some new furturistic cordless tv!

I will be updating new yarn later today so check back. Yesterday was a fun day. B had a playdate with his little cousin who is the same age. Which meant the lovely adult company of Sean + Amanda for me! Ahh the alure of adult conversation :)

Ode to Cabbage

title or description


Oh dear sweet cabbage I know I shunned you once before. I first smelled you in sauerkraut when I was very young. I thought you were repulsive…oh I had much to learn.
When I first tasted your deliciosness in spring rolls I denied you, instead claiming it must be lettuce to be so tasty. Oh cabbage, sweet cabbage….forgive my silliness!

So small it fits in the palm of my hand!

p.s. I know it looks a little more like lettuce (the green-ness and all) But I wanted to make cabbage, and sometimes when its late at night and you want to sew something…you use what you have :)
