this past week--I mean it just 'flew'--
must be 2011 is in a big hurry to get out of the way and let another year take charge--
I must say it was a big 'year' with all kinds of happenings around the world--so 2011 must be really "tired"???????
I tackled a big project today--
This is a small walk-in closet behind the bathroom door--
and you can see---
it's just a little 'messy'????
and it is also my dirty clothes room--
So today was the day--
to remove it all and start over--
first thing I did once stuff was out, 
was to move the 2 sets of 3 drawer cabinets to the back wall --
these drawers hold most of my yarn collection--the bottom four drawers and then I had to put the rest in baskets on the top--one drawer has my embroidery patterns in it and the top drawer had my counted cross stitch patterns and supplies--
these drawers were where the yellow stand is now--and they were 'fatter' so it did not give me much room to get into the room or out!!!!!
now here is the other side--might still look messy to you--
but let me tell you it is not--everything has a place and now I can get to what ever I need--
and yes that is a sewing machine case in the back corner--got it when I ordered my pink brother's sewing machine--it is large--so just turned the top up side down and that is where I have my rolls of batting stored==works great for that!!!!
And here is a stack of 14 quilt tops that need hand quilting--
think I will run away from home--!!!!!!
the top two have there batting and backings are ready to be basted--
maybe next week I will have more time to do that???????
Then after a little 'nappy' I was able to finish this--
All the blocks are done and all the embroidery on the blocks are finished--
with 24 hours or so to spare!!!!!!!!!!
Well--for some of you tonight is the night---
for the rest of us--we still have a few hours of stitching time left--
so get busy!!!!!!!!!!
Hugs, Di and Miss Gracie
