Thanks for all the shared ponderings about focusing on projects and in general! It's so cool to be able to bounce things off each other and share and laugh together...love my blog buddies!!!
So talking about focus...one thing I did a while back was put together a real simple bulletin board to pin my notes or sketches or pattern pieces on that I didn't want to get buried.
It's not a new idea and there are 100 better ways to make one, but if you ever want to throw a "focus board" together real quick and at little cost:
All you need is a piece of foam board that is available by the poster board at the dollar store. I saved my piece on it's way to the garbage. Cut it down to the size you want - just score and snap it. Lay it on a piece of fabric that is slightly larger than the board. Wrap the fabric to the back of the board and tape it to stay.
I just use pins to tack the notes and patterns on the board. Push pins will go straight through but you could always double up your foam board. Not a "finished" look, but it works. I just sat this one on the edge of my sewing table and it leans against the wall.
Sorry about the pics not being good...I need to go back to using my camera and stop being lazy with my phone.
Driving home from work today. A colorless world. Blech.
