I have no idea where October went and now here comes the holiday season. That means a few extra days off work to spend in the sewing room. We’ll see how that works out.
Last month I finished the Market Bag, the last bear block and played with liberated piecing for Creative Play. I also started the next handwork project. It was a good month.
The Short List is something old (UFO), something new, a scrap project, a handwork project and Creative Play. I started using this system in November 2014 to keep myself focused. I adjust the categories as needed to add new interests and drop things that no longer appeal.
Something Old: I’ve had the Color Study on the list for three months and not worked on it, so I’m thinking it’s not the right time for that project. I will either work on that or what I call the Goddess Block. That started in a class I took over ten years ago. It was stored in a box that got damp and mildewed, so I tore the project apart and threw parts of it away. All I have left of the original project (below) is the head.
Scrap Project: The next Stitching To Dye project. Experiment #2 has me adding previously dyed fabric to the neutral scraps. I will also use two block patterns instead of one and continue with the liberated piecing.
Even though the Rose Hughes class project falls under the handwork category, it is a UFO. With three UFOs on the list, I’d like to think I’ll finish one of them.
