March Short List

Wow. The third Short List of the year already. Even though I finished nothing on the January or February Short Lists, I still believe in this method. I know it’s the right approach for me; it just takes a bit to get in the flow. March is the month where I turn the corner.
As a reminder, the Short List is something old (UFO), something new, something painted and something abstract. I’m also adding a fifth category for handwork. I didn’t realize how much I missed it until I picked it up again.
Something old: Retro Charm – The binding is 75% done.

Since I know I’ll finish it this week I’m also adding the still life from the Esterita Austin class.

Something new: Sunflower by Zebra – The sunflowers are fused and I’m ready to start the machine applique.

I’m also making a pincushion this month after I spilled a whole container of pins between the bed and the wall. Twenty years of sewing and I’ve never made a pincushion.
Painting: The painting technique for February is layering color. I found some inspiration in the paintings of Gerhard Richter.

Abstract: The first Playtime method is called Hopscotch. Think of little blocks of fabric sewn into little logs of fabric with funky angles on both the logs and the blocks.
Handwork: The batik challenge from my Art Quilt Group. It’s still in the design phase, but wool appliqué may be involved.

So much for not adding anything new to the list until I finish something. And I will finish something this month.
