OH -- thanks to Heidi - I just downloaded a new app (well, new to me) to my phone. It's called LibraryThing and allows you to catalog your books. I know there are other apps, and I do keep lists of books that I've read in another database, but I didn't want to type in authors, etc. This allows me to scan the bar code and go from there. I'm going to try it!
At the same time, it would be great if I could sort some of those books into categories! It would make it a whole lot easier to find the books. Just not enough time! But I did get some sorting done yesterday, and WOW -- Studio B is getting better and better every day.
First -- I should let you know that the quilt is gone! I walked it over to the post office yesterday. There is a constant stream of people there mailing out envelopes or packages! A man wanted to mail an envelope. He simply asked for an international stamp. Well - you have to clarify that a wee bit. Then when his envelope was weighed, the price was more than he had found online. Did you know that there a fuel surcharge on everything you send? Yep - and I bet that wasn't included in the online price he saw, nor was the tax. Anyway, he didn't send his envelope. The difference was a couple of dollars.
I did feel bad for him because the clerk did NOT explain why there was a difference in the price: total miscommunication - sigh - not my problem.
This is a box of stuff in the office. At some point, it probably held quilting stuff and then got emptied and filled with stuff from the office - just to get it off a desk.
|A box of paper|
|An old CD disk|
|Fabric bought years ago|
|Old To-To lists|
|The leaves on the trees|
|The stack of stabilizers|
|Shorter rolls of stabilizer in another plastic container|
And now, this is what the stabilizer area looks like. I would like to find another container like the one on the bottom. I know I have one around here - I just need to locate it and empty what's in it. Then I can get rid of the wine box, and then I need a larger container for the longer rolls. I'm sure I have something around here for that. It's just a question of what in the container, and can I find a better home for it?
|All the stabilizers are now together|
|Inside the cabinet under the cutting table|
|Who is that mystery person?|
|A border for my UFO project|
|Snail's Trail blocks|
|The rest of the Snail's Trails are cut|
|My sewing area|
Wow ---- One day, I'll be up to date on what I'm sewing. You can stop laughing now! It'll happen, and that table of current projects will be under control. Then I'll really be able to focus, but for the moment, I have loads of room, and I'm training myself to keep things under control should I ever have to downsize. OK - when I have to downsize. So this is all good, and I'm so glad that I've finally got this whole mess figured out. It's only taken 20 years!!!
On that note, I'm out of here. It's another gloomy day, so no sneaking out to the gazebo. Which is OK - I have three presentations today. Well, one presentation and two software classes. Let's not forget that there's some paperwork (writing) to take care of! But that's almost under control (OK - you can laugh at that one!)
So what are we going to clean today? Pick ONE item in your house that you've been to sell. Take pictures and post them on one of the sites for selling things. You know you've got stuff that someone else can use. It's time to take pictures and get rid of whatever it is. I have stuff, and I'm going to try and do that today.
On that note - I'm out of here!
Have a super day!!!
