I am not missing--
just 'hiding'---not really!!!

Oh my what is missing is the last couple days I think!!!
So where did we leave off--Oh class on Tuesday evening--
and No I have not gotten any more purses made--YET!!!
but I will be making some more--they are 'cool' baby 'cool'!!!

As for Wednesday--would you believe that I have "no" clue as to what happened--
might have been stormy during my computer time--during the day it was more of just cleaning and finding new homes for my 'stuff'!!!!

Thursday morning was doing the 'chores' and doing some laundry and in the afternoon was another knitting class--and a funny thing happened here!!!!
Now you remember that I am knitting a vest here--
and it has this cute point in the front and it eventually gives in to a cable going up the front--and then we have small twisted stitches that go up each side under the arms!!
I have been knitting right along and was ready to put the first cable in at class time--
get there and am showing the others and they ask me if the cable going up the back looks like the front one--whoooooo---said anything about a point and cable going up the back?????  Ahhhh--none other than the pattern!!!!  Cute!!! one of these days I will 'learn' to read patterns!!!  So here I am with a good 5-6 inches of stitching--what is a girl to do--the vote was one to one--one said tear it out and start over and one said just go on!!!!  So they were of no help!!!  I sat and thought about it and looked it over--and decided there was no way I was going to unravel it all--I would of had to completely start over again!!!!  so I just figured out how many extra stitches I had in the back and started a decrease in the middle with the design from the cable part in the front and it came out correctly in just a couple rows and when I was ready to do the second cable in the front I did one in the back and now we are 'merrily' on our way!!!!

I got home late and was really tired and then Friday I just did not feel 'perky' at all--
but did work some more on the apartment--
so looky at these pictures--
Top shelf--left side--
top shelf--right side--
(see the mugs in at the sides--they are from a Hardee's--my parents had them years ago when they lived in Florida winters--if you took there mug you got free coffee with you cinnamon buns!!)
next shelf down on the left--
Ahhh--you knew there had to be some 'chocolate' in there somewhere's didn't you???
the right side of that shelf--

the left side of the next shelf--
the right side--
the left side of the bottom shelf--
the right side of the bottom shelf!!!
And now if we put these all together this is what we get now--
I still need to add the quilts on the doors--
even the cupboard under the shelves are done with storage!!!!

And in the hall corner cabinet--
I added something--
If you look down a post or two you will see the before picture!!!
I think this really adds something special to the basket!!!
I got this platter in NH on the trip--it is really pretty and very country!!!

Well-- I guess I have gabbed on long enough to this one--
Have a great Sunday you all!!!
Hugs, that Di and that miss gracie!!!


  1. Your cupboard looks wonderful and your idea of hanging quilts on the doors will really bring the whole thing together, I love it!!! You did good this week! wanna' start at my house?!!! It would keep you occupied for months LOL!!!!

  2. I recognized those Hardee's mugs right off the bat. We used to get all kinds of good deals there. They left the area years ago though.

    I have taken out rows and rows of knitting before. It hurts but sometimes there is no other choice. Glad you were able to fix your problem without doing any un-knitting.

  3. Search party recalled :0)
    Your cupboard looks nice. How clever of you to fix the knitting pattern! I do quite a bit of unravelling ... Dh thinks it makes the yarn last longer .....

  4. Ahhh, there you are, Di! We were beginning to fret again. ;-) But I knew deep down you were busy organizing your "mess".

    I'm sooo glad to hear you were able to fix the knitting problem without undoing so much! Very clever!!!

    Enjoy your Sunday!
