Studio Tour and Flower Photos

I worked on my studio this week. I'm not quite done, but at least I can show you how it looks right now.

Here is the view from the door. Vacation purchases are put away. Do you see the three boxes on the table? They are wooden boxes with a small chalkboard on them. I haven't decided if I'm going to use them in the studio or for storing Mr. E's toys. They were a bargain find at JoAnn's this week.
Here's my work table and island. I cleaned out the storage area of the island. I had several plastic tubs and plastic bags with quilt projects in them. The tubs stayed in the cupboard. I had space to put my paper crafting supplies on the bottom shelf of the cupboard.
This is my "storage" wall. I need to sort out the books. The massage chair cushion is still waiting for a good home somewhere in our house. It is sitting on an antique sewing table that is also waiting to find it's perfect use. You can almost see the plastic storage unit I also got at JoAnn's. I put the plastic bags of projects in it. In the black bag I have put my yarn projects. The cubbies hold various items: office supplies; the fabric baskets hold sewing notions, my stitching supplies and small projects. On the bottom shelf are binders with projects and printouts from quilt classes.
Back in June, Stephanie of Loft Creations wrote a post about her passion for bags. I bookmarked it because I wanted to show how I store my bags. I don't have a design wall. Instead I have a display wall. I use 3M Command Adhesive Hooks to hang bags, ornaments and other gifts I've received in swaps. I'm always inspired when I look at the wall.

When we were on vacation I started playing with the various settings on my digital camera. I've always been and "auto" setting photographer and recently discovered the other settings. While DH was playing golf I took a couple photos of flowers using the flower setting. I think these photos are cool.

I hope you're having a great weekend. Mr. E is spending the weekend with us. Grampa Boo will be home soon and then we are going to a art and music festival in town.

Sweet P
