I have a cork bulletin board behind my machine so I can tack up the directions or any other thing I may be using for my project. I also tried to put up some cork tiles on my wall to hold my applique BOM patterns... just so I can see at a glance how far behind I am. lol Anyway, that plan didn't work. I came home from work and found half of the tiles on the floor. I'll come up with something else. I may put up another cork board...just 'cause I can.
