October Short List

I finished two projects last month, the wristlet and the Craftsy quilt, which I renamed Summertime. I also made a lot of progress on the Still Life quilt and cut out the Memory Quilt. A good month overall.
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’m ready to start quilting the background.

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: A co-worker gave me four large bags of fabric to donate to my guild and I decided to make a quilt for his wife out of the fabric. Her mother passed away earlier this year and was a life-long sewer. This one is cut but I haven’t started piecing it. I took three bags of fabric to guild and donated it.

paint-stik-on-paintHandwork: I think I’ll embellish Confetti Breeze. I finished quilting and facing it a couple years ago.

I’d love to finish a few more UFOs before the end of the year because that list is still too long. The Short List has really helped me to finish what I start. This may be the first year ever I don’t add to the UFO list.
