I did pretty well at finding time for some hand stitching most days of the holiday.
15 minutes stitching days/week = 6/7 days
15 minutes stitching days/Dec = 23/29 days
15 minutes stitching days 2018 = 337/363
Success rate = 92.84%
I came down with a nasty, nasty cold Christmas day, complete with fever. There was one day I felt too crummy to do much of anything but sit in the recliner and sleep. But even with that lapse, I should still make my goal of finding time to stitch more than 90% of the time in 2018. Mr. Linky is waiting at the end of the post if you want to share how your stitching week went.
The response to the 15 minutes to stitch has been pretty consistent this year, so I am going to continue the weekly link ups for 2019. Next year's button is already there to the right.
I tried to set this year's button up with a code so you could grab it for your blog, but Flicker addresses no longer work and I'm not sure I want to add another photo sharing site to my list. So for now you'll just have to save the button as a photo and use it that way.
The stash report this week is pretty easy, there was a lot of hand stitching, but not much time in the sewing room.
Fabric used this week = 0 yards
Fabric used in 2018 = 42.17 yards
More in than out for 2018
I'm disappointed to not meet my goal on fabric usage this year, the hope was to use 100 yards. I'm still trying to work out how an increase in stitching time doesn't translate to an increase in fabric usage and finishes. Maybe the key is sewing machine time, hand work and computer are often my fall backs if I'm on the road or just really do not have time to make it up the stairs. So maybe there was more of that type of stitching time than sewing machine time. Still it wasn't a bad year, I moved a number of projects along the path to completion. There should be a good number of finishes this year as a result. Linking up with QuiltPaintCreate for the weekly stash report.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year. Here's Mr. Linky so you can share how your 2018 is wrapping up on the stitching front.
