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--
that Miss Gracie and I had a very good Christmas--
These gifts are from blog friend -- Sunny in Maryland--
I just love them--and what a neat craft idea--
the card was homemade tooooo!!!!
Yep--I do believe that it was a good one--
Isn't little 'guy' cuteeeeeeeeee????????
Here is the rest of my 'loot' from another blog friend Alice in VA--
I got two great movies, 2 charm packs of Oasis, a yard or so of a delicious looking Chocolate fabric--not sure if I am to sew with it or 'eat' it????? Then there is a cute pad with kitties on it and the paper inside has kitties and even a small pencil--how cute!!
some emery files and lots of pencils along with that cuteeeeeeeeeeeeeee penguin believe bell.
Thank you so much Alice!!!
she is also the one who sent Miss Gracie some 'loot'--
Did get these pictures of her playing with one of them--
Ahhh--Miss Gracie--that is the camera cord--
you are suppose to be playing with the 'new' toys!!!!
OH--Miss Gracie does want me to tell, Auntie Alice that she loves allllll her new toys, and wants to say, Thank you!!!!
And here is that beautiful card again and now I have a beautiful silver angel to go with the card--
oh--wait a minute--I bet that blog friend, Anne-Lise, of Norway--meant the angel to go on my tree--
but I just may have to leave her out this next year!! Thanks Anne-Lise!!
And Auntie Shell got Miss Gracie a catnip toy--see it there on the rug--
Miss Gracie had alot of fun with it--till she seen me get the camera--and that ended that--
one of these days I will have the camera in the right place at the right time!!!!
Miss Gracie says, Thank you to Auntie Shell and the bunnies for her new toy!!
That some blog friends spoiled me and Miss Gracie this year--
we truly are so very 'thankful' for each and every one of you around the world who add to our heart some love everyday--
