Week 49 of 2018: Stitching and De-Stashing

This is the time of year where the to do list really does exceed the hours in a day.  If I could take work off the list, I might actually have a chance to get somewhere.  But as I need the income to support my quilting habits (and keep the Scientist In Training in college), that's probably not happening anytime soon.  Sometimes you have to get creative to work in those 15 minutes of stitching time each day. 



It was not a bad week on the stitching front. 

15 minutes stitching days/week = 6/7 days
15 minutes stitching days/December = 7/8 days
15 minutes stitching days 2018 = 321/342 days
Success rate = 93.86%

We had a holiday party to attend last Friday and I just wasn't able to work in any stitching time for the day.  Still, I'm over 90% for the year and that's the goal.  So still on track.  Though finding time to stitch is going to get more challenging as the month goes on.  You can share how well you are managing to find some stitching time this holiday season at the bottom of the post. 

There was just a bit of fabric out this week as the final borders were added to the Christmas Mystery quilt.

Fabric used this week = 0.69 yards
Fabric used in 2018 = 41.88 yards
More in than out for 2018. 

Stash busting just didn't happen for 2018.  I'm hoping that 2019 will be better.  

Linking up with Quiltpaintcreate for the stash report.  You can link up below to share how well you did at finding time to stitch.

I am finding this to be so inspirational!! Your tracking is really outstanding!

Getting in any sewing time during the week when you work is great, but to do it with the consistency you do is just fantastic. I hope you have some time off during Christmas to get a lot of your to-do list checked off.

You're doing great, Kate! I completely understand about having a list that is way too big for the amount of time available, and having that pesky job taking up too much of the time.
