Cleaning for my parents

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.14.2008

I thought you might find this amusing.

Since my parents came a few weekends ago, I of course had to clean out the spare bedroom, which is a storeroom the other 360 days of the year.

the far corner

this is the corner directly to the right of the doorway

Aren't you impressed???

Unfortunately, the exercise bike had to stay
Where did all that junk go, you ask?
Most of it was stuff I was intending to give to Goodwill but never got around to doing until the day before my parents arrived.
The rest got shunted into my office, which looks like this:


  1. wow you did good. My spare room is being cleaned at present tubs sure are good to use. we have send alot to recycling and some to charity also.
    Have a great visit with your parents.

  2. Holy Moly. Are you in the Phoenix area any time soon? I have a couple rooms that need help.

  3. Wow...looks like you worked really hard on that!

  4. Camy, I AM impressed--I have a couple rooms that look like your before, but don't have many that look like the after! Good for you! And enjoy your time with family!!

  5. I totally understand this - I'm such a pack rat! Of course if I had a spare room it would be filled with books lol.

  6. I'm impressed... how long did that take?

    I have to confess that I have a spare room that look about like the before pictures... and when I clean rooms like that, most of the stuff generally gets put in boxes and shuffled to another room. :-)

  7. I feel so much better about my office. I clean only for company myself. I mean there another good reason?

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
