Placed Cable Aran

Finally, I finished the second sleeve of the Placed Cable Aran, only to realize that I just had the space to block the body and one sleeve. Ack. And I had a lot of trouble getting even a decent picture.

Io loves me:

Cooking With Wanrong

Last Friday, the MBAs had their Chinese New Years Party, so Sarah, Rhadika, and I headed over to Wanrong's to help her cook. We sliced tea-soaked eggs and helped make crispy chicken.

Here is the nummy lunch Wanrong made for us:

Better Late Than Never

This year's gingerbread houses (these pictures are not so great.):

Darin made a drive in theatre


Io made a doll house


I decorated a wine box. I like wine.


You may notice a Grover theme in all of the pictures. He's kind of the main decorating touch in my Belfair house. I love him because he is both horribly rude and totally loving.

Aguada, Puerto Rico

For those of you in Seattle, this is what a blue sky looks like:


Our porch:


View from the porch:


I miss Puerto Rico. I miss it a lot.


I keep leaving my camera cord at whatever house I am not at. Ack. Maybe I can remember to have Io bring hers over.

Plans for the weekend.

1. Make new dress
2. Make Valentines cards
3. Figure out what Io wants me to make for her next
4. Make a chocolate pie
5. Homework
