hodgepodge of potpourri

still no finished pictures of the sienna cardigan. i found an old tweed vest at a thrift store and stole the fake leather buttons off of it, but sewing those suckers on is another story. in the meantime, i made a sock for steve. i will reveal them when they are both done.

i also picked this guy up at the thrift store:

it's a drip glaze platter from an old company in ohio.

my chile seedlings are doing well:

the photo is, as usual, crappy, but check out those little guys!

also, no need to put away the cross-country gear yet. looks like we'll have a snowy weekend.

it's the end of the weekend and i have a few things to say, but no real pics to post. that will happen later in the week.
i finished the sienna cardigan, sans buttons and i still have to wash it. i need to go on a thrift store search for an old sweater with good buttons or a jar full of them.
i went cross country skiing twice this weekend, but only one time really counts. i went to delaware park the first time with patty by myself. patty threw a fit and just wanted to go back to the car after only a little bit. but this was a good test of my new skis/poles/shoes because the baskets on my poles hadn't been attached very well. that was my own fault.
today we went to hunters creek (see some info here about it). this was our second time there and patty had a blast. it was fun for us too, but next time we have to plan for a longer trip to make it worth it. we're still figuring out the trails.
even after two miles of running through the snow patty isn't tired.

next time we'll have to bring one of the cameras and snap some skiing shots.
