None the worse for wear and tear!

The storms blew by and left us in tact...luckier than some.  Here's your creepy picture for the day.........
 and since we didn't get blown away yesterday I managed to get a little progress done on the scarf for my daughter.   It's all knit stitches so truly mindless knitting and I really like how it is turning out.
 Here's a closer look.  
  Most importantly I am going strong on the ghosts for my little grand goblins! LOL!  The one ghost on the right is done except for attaching the 2 little "arms", embroidering a smile and weaving in the ends.  Therefore, I thought I would go ahead and get all the crocheting done and then do the handwork on all of them at the end.  I'm making 4 but only 3 need to get done now as one is for my Halloween tree.  Their's have to be mailed.
 Finally got back to the Kitchen Project....Cupboard #1 cleaned inside and out.  All the canning jars got boxed up and put in the basement.  An empty cupboard...what a nice thing to have although I'm sure it won't be that way for long.  I'm ignoring the space above the cupboards for now. 
  Here's the next cupboard which I started emptying last night. I'm hoping there will be less going back in when I get done.   These cupboards are really inefficient.  My old farm cupboards held much more and I was able to organize it better.  Those shelves can't even hold a box of cereal standing upright and they are not adjustable.  Engineering done by someone who probably spent very little time in a kitchen!
 That's all for today.  All my Monday chores are being done today as yesterday was not a day to do much of anything except keep an eye on the weather.  I'll be by to "catch up" later!
Happy Trails!


  1. We are having rain right now but so far no bad storms. It's been almost like Spring weather this fall, hasn't it? Love seeing the progress of your projects. You do some every day. I'm hit and miss! lol Sweet hugs, Diane

  2. Glad you are okay. Some cupboards are worse than no cupboards:(

  3. You reminded me I need to get back in my bedroom for deep cleaning. I have a nice pile started for the thrift store.

  4. I love knitting projects that involve all knitting. One of the first sweaters I made, decades ago, was done on circular needles and I fell in love with just knit and no purl.

    The colors of the scarf are great.

  5. Glad you fared the storm well. I don't watch the news so never know what's going on in the world. Organizing and cleaning cupboards is on my list of things to do. We did accomplish one thing today. A stupid door on the kitchen that served no purpose and only had crap behind it, was taken down, everything cleared out and a bookshelf put there in it's place for storage. I've wanted to do it for years and am so glad I finally did. That door was just in the way and made getting through to the kitchen crowded. Now it's more open. Your scarf and little ghosts are great. Best wishes, Tammy

  6. Glad you survived the storm ok, Sam! You have been busy again....love the little ghost....and I love mindless knitting - or crochet- too....it is so meditative and relaxing!
    Happy weekend!

  7. That's a beautiful scarf..your daughter will love it! Extra special because her Mama made it:)

  8. Like the gargoyle-person. I hear ya on who designs kitchen cupboards!!

  9. Man, do you want to come and organize my kitchen? I need a bit of help. The ghosts are cute. They look fun to hook. The loopy scarf looks like it will cozy up to her neck and keep wind out well.
