Design Wall Monday
Is this the sign of a troubled brain? This is the actual state of my design wall today. The scary part is that it isn't even everything I am currently working on.
Hanging on the wall are the projects I have yet to finish as well as all the cool stuff that I pin up there to give me inspiration. To the left I have several photos, some tiny 4-patches I've stitched together just waiting to be included in a quilt, and some red and white striped fabrics. On the right is my screaming flying monkey. He's very annoying and that's why I always take him to retreats. There are my Jacob Ladders - no progress has been made on those. There is my latest bonus triangle quilt and a pair of curvy blocks (only one shows) that I intend to use in a quilt some day. There is even a cut-out Raggedy Ann pinned up there.
In the center is a blue and yellow panel that I stitched together. It's on the way to becoming a tote bag as soon as I figure out what to use for handles. Unfortunately, the fabric sample I had didn't yield enough for handles. I'm thinking of using recycled denim for the handles. The red and white blocks have shown up here many times. I keep thinking I'll put them away till after the holidays but the thought of forgetting I have them scares me a little. "Out of sight out of mind" rings very true in my life!!
