I decided the first project I should tackle on The Short List would be the Christmas tree skirt. Last night I finished removing all of the binding (which took just as much time to remove as it did to put on!). Once that was done
I trimmed the corners of the quilt.
I couldn't find any of the fabrics I used to make the tree skirt, so decided on a black and tan Thimbleberries fabric for the binding. Tonight I made the binding and sewed it on. Once it's handstitched down, this one will be finished! I didn't have enough fabric to do a bias binding, which I really needed for the curved corners, so I hope everything will lie smoothly, otherwise I'll have to press it into submission.
I think once I finish a project, I'll take if off my list and add a new one on. That way my list will never be longer than four or five items. I'll keep a separate list for my applique and other long term projects. It sounds like there are a few of us who will be making our short lists together. This isn't a formal challenge, so there are no rules, regulations, linky lists or any of that. I'm sure that we all want to spend our time sewing , rather than trying to follow challenge rules! Just let us know that you're sewing along with us, so we can see your progress too! I know that Kathie wants to sew a few bindings, Ruth wants to join us, JulieQ, and Debbiequilter to name a few. Let us know if you're in too! Vicky, have you had time to sew this week?
