Random Thing 1
Check out this purse organizer.
I purchased this from Purse Pleaser. This is the best organizer that I’ve come across — at least for my purposes. It comes in three different sizes and is sort of like those acrylic cosmetic organizers with all the compartments. One of the cool things about it is that it is adjustable. I like also that it is sturdy and has a flat base. It doesn’t flop over like the fabric organizers do.
I recently incorporated my small wallet, credit card case, and checkbook into one big-*ss wallet.
While this wallet does not fit in any of the compartments of the purse organizer, there is plenty of room in my purse to slip it along-side the organizer in my purse. (The wallet is made by Lodis, by the way, and is the best multi-function wallet I’ve ever had. It manages to hold a whole boatload of stuff while maintaining a slim profile.)

. . . before I go and buy the pattern.. can you rate the difficulty level? And the other all important question, is it ONLY chart instructions?
I would say the difficulty level is advanced beginner or intermediate. This is not a tough pattern, and it is very clearly written. And for those of you who do not like charts, it is also written out line by line! What’s not to like?
While I think it is a fairly easy-to-knit pattern, I am not finding it boring. It’s quite an enjoyable knit, and the resulting lace is so pretty that adds to the enjoyment!

While Lucy would like you to think that she is missing her cardboard box and would like you to pity her, don’t believe her. She spent a blissful half-hour playing in the box and then suddenly turned against it and for the next 24 hours pretended it did not exist. After 24 hours, I threw it away. She does not seem to have noticed.
And here we have . . .
