May Short List

No finishes off the April Short List last month. I made progress on a few things, which should lead to May finishes.

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 – A Safehouse quilt is UFO #11 that was chosen for May’s Get It Done Challenge at Patchwork Times. The top needs quilted.

Something Else Old – The bear blocks. I made some progress last month and don’t want to lose momentum.

Something new – The third Stitching to Dye quilt. I’m quilting the top.

Handwork – I bought a couple pillowcases at the thrift shop for next to nothing. I made a lot of progress on the first one in April. 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. Sadly, I have done very little with this category in 2017.

I can see finishing two or three projects this month. I just need to get myself in the sewing room more. Another rainy weekend is forecast and that might help me get a good start.
