Focus On Life Week 28: Pretty Patterns


You are probably wondering what the heck this is. Weeeeel, every time I see a pattern I like, I take a picture of it and save it to a folder on my computer called Projects to Complete. As of this writing, that folder holds 143 pictures most of them shown in the above collage. Now, the trick is remembering the location of the pattern connected to the picture!

Karen - your Fancy Fish tutorial is in there! (Middle of row 2.)

And for more pretty patterns that actually make sense, look at these lovely articles:

I have a recipe folder like that. I think it has so many in it right now I could bake every day until I die and still not use them all.

That's a great idea - I see so much on line and think I'll go back to it but can never find it again - I have millions of sites in my favourites folder!!!

I save everything I want to do to Evernote. Looks like you could get inspiration for your beading for a long, long time.

I 'layered' patterned chainmaille on top of old sewing patterns so my picture makes about as much sense as yours does! I need to find someone who speaks russian.. I found a knitting pattern on Pinterest last week in russian that I'd like to try... but instead of knitting or purling It says '15 persons turn' ... I do like your picture I think as a 48 * 24 blowup it would look great on a studio wall!

So many patterns so little time!:) Paula, I have a folder like this on my computer too. Very clever interpretation of the prompt, they are so pretty!

Your saved patterns as a collage is in itself a gorgeous pattern. Looks like you have some wonderful inspiration. I keep mine on a Word document and indicate where it came from.

We all have something in common with that ever growing folder on our computers. Great collage!

I like the mosaic effect of all those pages!

Adrienne said...

Wow, what a neat way to save ideas.

Shel said...

Cool photo collage Paula! Love the folder w/all those yummy patterns - great idea.

Alicia said...

LOL, I have a similar folder... which sometimes gets me out of trouble :) But I like your idea of a collage!

Thanks for the post!
