January turned into one of those months when a whole lot of nothing got done. Best to put it behind me and move on.
Last month I talked about limiting active sewing projects to two, avoiding overwhelm. That didn’t happen either. Projects are everywhere. Again. I have a variety of projects to enjoy, depending on my mood.
The Short List categories are UFO, garment, original design, hand work, finishing, classes and other. I’ve used this system for 6+ years to keep me focused. The categories change as my goals and interests change. Categories with nothing in process will not be listed, only active categories.
UFO – I’m piecing blocks for Stars in the Night, the Quilt Addicts Anonymous 2016 block of the month. The number of blocks for each month varies. I’m working on month four, which is 14 six inch star blocks. Nine of them are finished.
Original Design – I need to come up with a quilting plan for Open Dialogue.
Hand Work – I’m still stitching on Christmas Eve.
Class – I’m working on task #6 in the Basic Crazy Quilting Course with Kathy Shaw.
Other – I started a table runner using a fat quarter of an adorable novelty print. One fat quarter was all the shop had of it. The blocks are made and need sewn together.
Finishing the runner will be February’s OMG, linking to Elm Street Quilts. The project definitely has an Easter feel to it.
