November Short List

Here we are in a new month, rolling into the holiday season. I’m not sure I’m ready for cold and snow and Christmas everywhere you look. I think it will come anyway, whether I want it to or not.
This will be an odd Short list. I have a couple projects close to done and feel like I need to put the next thing on the list too. That will make for a long list. We’ll have to see how that goes.
The Short List includes something old (UFO), something new, a handwork project and Creative Play. I started using this system in November 2014 to keep myself focused. I add and delete categories over time as my interests change.
In October I finished a pillowcase and the surface design round robin piece.
Something Old – I’m quilting and embellishing the Snippet Butterfly top. It’s my oldest UFO.

The cat quilt makes a reappearance here too, because I feel like I’ve been working on it forever. I binge quilted it last weekend and the binding is pieced. I even have the label sewn on the back. It just need bound.
Something New – The bunny quilt. All the rows are sewn, but not to each other.

I’m also going to make a few small things, some for Christmas gift.
Handwork – I will crochet the edging on the second pillowcase. It’s already started.

Creative Play – I have the second round of the surface design round robin to work on for Art Quilt Group.

For my learning project, I’m trying a different method of quilt as you go on the bunny quilt. I doubt I’ll finish it in November. It may turn into a two month long experiment.
The leader and ender project is ongoing.
So that’s my list. I have some extra time off with the holiday this month and no plans. It may turn into my own little mini-retreat.

    Wow, great progress Donna! I’m anxious to see the finished bunny quilt. Should be really cute!

    I’m glad you have some extra time off in December. A mini-retreat would be good for you.

    You’ve got a good list of projects for this month. I really do like that butterfly project. I’ve got some odd Fridays off between now and the holidays, I’m planning some mini retreats too. A refuge from all the baking and shopping madness.

  3. Hi Donna, Thanks for linking up to the Learning QAL. Even if it’s a two month project, as long as you let us know what you learned, it will certainly qualify. It’s not easy to fit learning into a one month segments! Best of luck.
