*sew much to do

As I mentioned before, I hope to get more than 3 quilts finished this year, God willing!  I sometimes do waste time and could be more disciplined and focused whether it is sewing or doing other things around Erilyn.  I decided to make me a focus board of sorts that I could write on, wipe off and write again.

I took a medium sized picture frame that we had in storage and then found a piece of fabric to use as a background under the glass. I could have left it like that, but to be more interesting to me, I  decided to look around and find a few things that hold meaning for me.  I chose a few cards given to me by dear friends and a recent birthday gift (vintage buttons and pattern card) to put under the glass.  Once it was all mounted and set in the frame I selected an overhead marker and dry erase marker to list the projects that I will work towards completing this year.  As they are completed I can wipe them off and add new ones (or not).

Today I spent some time cleaning my sewing room and rearranging some fabrics.  I even found some fabrics I forgot I had - ever done that?  It was like going to the quilting store all over again!  I am feeling encouraged, inspired and ready to sew - how about you?

  1. Love your focus board idea! I've got one too, but it needs to be updated! HA! New ideas are running wild in my head for 2012 and I need a place to coral them into one place! Happy New " creative " New Year Lynnie!
