solanum tuberosum and numismatists
Some of you may remember from Christmas that my father-in-law collects coins and is therefore a numismatist. His birthday is this coming Saturday. So I embroidered an image of a coin and made him this container (which we put some of his favorite mixed nuts in) for his birthday. I am rather proud of the idea of using corduroy for the ridges of the coin. :)
Since I was using the big word numismatist in the title of this post, I decided to look up the latin name for potatoes. :)
Here is an update of our St Paddy's day leprechauns. The girls love it when the potatoes start sprouting. It makes for great warts, don't you think?
PS this container is not one of the containers I was referring to last week...
I will be sharing this at:
