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!!
