I am incredibly slow today, therefor I've decided to not make plans with anyone and just do the things I've been meaning to do for the past few days. One of which is go to the plant store down the street and grab some new ivy plants. These two little babe's are my purchases for today :

This little lady (I call her a lady because she is red) I bought from Crest Hardware a couple weeks ago with intentions of leaving her on my fire escape to bask in the sun, one week of fire escape life and she was blown all over the place and nearly falling over in the pot. I panicked, watered the hell out of her and tied some yarn around her leaves to hopefully keep some stability and found a new home for her inside. She will now live under the sky light in the living room.

Now these 3 live on the fire escape alone, the two little ones (that I planted from seeds) won't have to protection of rouge leaf anymore if it gets windy so I hope they start wrapping around the poles before we have any other wind storms. The one on the far left is was a housewarming gift from my friend Heather. She also planted this guy from a seed. Super adorable. I love plants... now that I know how to not kill them.

Due to my hangover, I don't have much else for today that I can think of. I started dragonfly sock a couple days ago. Just about done the first one, so simple and adorable. Photos soon. I'm also still working on my cape that I am making up the pattern as I go. I have decided I'm going to be really upset if it doesn't work and REALLY excited if it does.

I also want to take sewing classes, anyone got a good place in NYC?

i love plants but i kill everything except cactus. yay cactus. recently i inherited a jade plant that used to be my grandmothers and a marigold (i think) plant that my son grew for me in his kindergarten class. I am trying really really hard not to kill them since they are special and so far so good!

I love the little splash of green in photo number two and the fact that your calling your plants little ladies. I took classes at this place: http://www.sewfastseweasy.com/. Warning the woman who runs it is a lunatic but it will get you started. If I still lived in NY I would be taking a lot more classes at the Parsons continuing ed.
