April Short List

March was a good month for The Short List. I finished the rug, the Safehouse top and January’s art supply play block. I haven’t made much UFO progress, but there are plenty of months left in the year.

The Short List includes something old (UFO), something new, a handwork project and Art Supply 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 – The embroidered teddy bear block quilt is UFO #1 that was chosen for April’s Get It Done Challenge at Patchwork Times. The top needs put together and quilted.

Something new – The third Stitching to Dye quilt. I’m working on the blocks.

Handwork – I bought a couple pillowcases at the thrift shop for next to nothing. I started embroidering them this week. I’m using them to experiment with different threads and stitches.

Art Supply Play – This category covers using or experimenting with the various art/quilting supplies in my stash. I have a few ideas I want to try, just need to decide on one.

I know I won’t finish three things this month, but I’m working steady on two of them. It would be nice to finish something because I have lots of ideas for future projects – fun, exciting, new to me projects. There’s always something shiny waiting in the wings.
