BIG BUSY DAY--

Great mail call today--
Got my order in from Green Fairy---they had jelly rolls on sale this past week end--
the two smaller ones are Christmas ones--
and--
found one charm pack on sale--
so--these will get added to the "stash"!!!!

Also I won something over on--
thepolkadottedchicken and that came in today tooo!!!!
How pretty--and how thoughtful--
do you see what I see????
Now these are not just M&M's--
These are--
Oh my--
Carol--you will now be my friend for life!!!!
Oh what else did I get--
the floss and the linen fabric to make this--
beautiful counted cross stitch pattern that also came with everything!!!
Thank you sooo very much Carol!

OK--fun is over--
the bloggers want to know--
Did 'Di' get any work on the organizing and cleaning done?????
Well--I am happy to show you these pictures--
the shelves are full--
but it is all sorted and I can see it and it is sooo pretty to look at!!!
This cupboard part holds all the 'collections' of fabrics and kits!!!
the bottom shelf here on this side has all my Christmas fabrics on it--
and the plastic bins and basket on top hold all the felt and felt kits!!!
This plastic bin holds the bom in progress for 2011--
they where in individual baskets and where taking up space elsewhere--
usually on the cutting counter--that meant moving stuff off it everytime I wanted to work!!!
The black thingy on the top here is a air machine to clean the air in my bedroom--!!
See I really did get lots of work done today--
I could sit right down now and start sewing--
and this little closet that used to be home to all the plastic storage drawers--
is for the 'runovers'!!! The books, magazines, batting, extra sewing machine and such are here--and in these plastic drawers are my yarns and counted cross stitch and embroidery items--
I am way tooo organized now---
I will never find anything!!!!!

Now look at the rest of the apartment--
If you dare???
I hope most of this mess is 'orphans' that I can get rid of--
but I fear that will not be the case!!!!

Ahhhhh--yes that poor little table has more stuff on it now--
alot of this will go into the bottom of the wood cabinet or on the shelves--
but this is all work for another day!!!

So what did you do today?????
for continuing to read this blog site--
things have really been 'hairy' around here--
and you all have been the glue to hold me together!!!

  1. Di, I do believe you have earned a total "ME" day and spend it sewing tomorrow! I hope Miss Gracie doesn't get lost in the living room amid all those piles of baskets and what-not! lol

    Today my dh and I went on a "wild-goose chase" looking for a Hickory Farms and didn't find it...ended up ordering online for Father's Day.

  5. I love the dark M&Ms too. They are so decadent and delicious. Wow, look at all that organizing you did. Serious work! The fabric looks great. I like that idea for BOM's. I put mine in boxes right now on a bookshelf.
