Yes - I got photos for you today. A full tour of Studio U. I haven't been sewing a lot up there - there isn't even a sewing machine at the moment, but on some of the nice sunny days, I hope to move up! And speaking of the sun? Where has the sun been hiding? There was some sun yesterday when I went for my walk, but it's been pretty cloudy lately!
Did I get my e-mail woes solved? No. That was after spending two hours on the phone with Microsoft. At least the support person got my e-mail to come into Outlook, but ONLY into the Important folder, not the Inbox. I don't mind - as long as the e-mails come in. I'm going to receive a call from the escalation team today to see what they can do.
I'm happy to report that the UFO club is FULL - chock a block full! We all have great ambitions, and with money on the line, many projects will get finished this year. I can't wait! Well, I shouldn't wait - I have homework to do! And despite the issues with my e-mail, I believe that everyone who responded got in. If you haven't received an e-mail with the homework list, then you didn't get in.
Now I need to get the rest of the clubs/classes organized. I was supposed to do that yesterday, but it was hard to do that when someone else had control of my e-mail account.
So while we were waiting for things to synchronize, I had some time on my hands and didn't want to wander too far away. Guess what I did? I cleaned and sorted stuff in the office. And you know what? It felt great!!! I do have one thing from the office to share with you later, but there's a WHOLE pile of stuff to come. I make good progress. I'm happy.
OK - and now on with the tour.
There's this glorious big desk in the room, and yes - you have to love those bright colors!! Currently, there's NOTHING on the desk, except for my pattern weights, an empty dish for threads, and a power bar. There are two tubs of supplies for work under the desk—all neat and tidy.

|Scraps to sort through|
And this is on the other side of the cutting table. The bottom tub is a tub of scraps that someone gave me years ago. I've no idea really what's in it, but it should be sorted through - she was very generous in the size of her scraps. Probably loads in there to make lots of scrap quilts for community projects. I might go through it this week - just to know what's in it. I've never touched it. The white basket on top is my stuff that needs to be sorted.

Well, there's lots more to come as I go through the office. It's going to be a slow process as there's a lot of paper to trash and sort, but already it looks so much better, and once everything has a home, it's going to be a snap to keep things tidy. And once I get rid of all the crap that the family dumped on me. OK - and what I accumulated as well! Yes - it's mostly my stuff.
On that note - I'm out of here. Got lots of stuff to do today - errands, dentist, phone calls and let's not forget the -e-mail!
Have a super day!!!! (don't forget to set your timer to 10-minutes and see what you can accomplish today!)
