Week 31 of 2018: Stitching and Stashing

It was a busy, busy week in a lot of ways.  Finding time to stitch, even just 15 minutes, was a challenge. 

My week got gobbled up with a special evening meeting, project deadlines and moving the scientist in training out of the dorm after summer school.  So it was a really busy week and my stitching report shows it. 

     15 minute stitching days/week = 5/7 days
     15 minutes stitching days/July = 31/31 days
     15 minutes stitching days/August = 2/4 days
     15 minutes stitching days 2018 = 204/216 days
     Success rate = 94.44%

It wasn't a horrible week, just not a great week. The days I did find time to stitch, it really was just 15 minutes.  Some weeks are just going to be that way.  July was a really good month, but August will probably see a lot less sewing room time.  We've got some family time planned for one weekend this month.  On the work front, a new project was approved.  This one has a very tight timeline, so I expect some late work nights this month.  You can link up at the bottom of the post if you want to share how you managed to find stitching time this week.  

The stash report mirrors the stitching time, it really wasn't one of my better weeks. 

     Fabric used this week:  0.28 yards
     Fabric used in July:  3.27 yards
     Fabric used in 2018:  28.24 yards
     Fabric purchased in 2018:  64.41 yards
     Net fabric in for 2018: 36.17 yards 

At least there's a bit going out for the week and with nothing coming in.  I'm linking up Quiltpaintcreate for the weekly stash report. 

I hope your stitching week was much more relaxed and productive. You can link up here to share how well you did on finding time to stitch last week.

Hi! Life happens and, like you said, some weeks are better than others! I joined you this week. My first week was phenomenally more productive! Thank you for hosting this party!

Sorry to hear that your sewing time will be compromised during the month of August. Here's hoping you get more days to sew than you expect!!

Julie in GA said...

Don't you hate it when the job interferes with your quilting time?! I hope you can still squeeze in your at least 15 minutes most days to help preserve your sanity!

Nothing coming in is the big battle! Kudos for achieving that. Best of luck with that new work project. I hope it turns out to be less taxing than expected and allows you more stitching time.
