August Short List

I made progress in July, but didn’t finish anything. One project needs to switch categories and another needs to go. With a big sigh I’m dropping the Abstract category. Maybe next year.
I did finish a UFO last month, but it wasn’t the one on the list.
For new readers, the Short List is something old (UFO), something new, something painted and a handwork project.
Something Old: The still life from the Esterita Austin class. I started quilting this one.

pottery-in-progressSomething new: I chose a sketch out of my idea notebook to make into a quilt. For lack of a better name, I refer to it as “the church quilt”. Long story, but the design has nothing to do with church or anything you’d find in a church. It’s just one of those weird things that makes sense to me.

Something else new: I finished all the Craftsy class appliqué blocks and sashed them. I just need to add the borders and quilt it.

sashed-applique-blocksYet one more new thing: A co-worker gave me four large bags of fabric to donate to my guild and I decided to make a wall hanging for his wife out of the fabric. Her mother passed away earlier this year and was a life-long sewer.
Painting/Dyeing: Layering color. I was inspired by the paintings of Gerhard Richter. I’m ready to baste this one.

paint-stik-on-paintHandwork: The Rose Hughes class project.

class-projectAlthough any progress would be good, a finish would be better. Two finishes would be awesome. The New category is a little crowded, which means I probably won’t replace anything I finish in any other category until I’m back to one New project.
Those may be famous last words.
