It's always a challenge to fit in 15 minutes of stitching time each day when we are on the road.
That's why I keep a road ready hand stitching project prepped and ready to go.
I was able to finish off the middle "body" and then make a good start on the upper wing while we were gone. At some point I really need to work on this project when I'm home, at the rate I'm going it's going to take forever to finish up. You can check out some other handy work over at Slow Stitching Sunday.
Even with a portable hand project, I didn't quite manage to stitch every day this week.
15 minute days/week = 6/7 days
15 minute days/Mar = 22/23 days
15 minute days/2019 = 78/82 days
Success rate = 95.12%
Still not a bad week. My goal is to stitch at least 90% of the time. So far, so good on that front. Mr. Linky is waiting at the end of the post for you to link up and share how your stitching time worked out this week.
Being on the road means there's an opportunity to check out a few quilt shops. We stopped on the way home from Eureka Springs so we could stretch our legs and I found a place where I could pet some fabric. There were just a couple of pieces that had to come home with.
I loved this butterfly panel. There are some rainbow scrap challenge butterfly blocks that need a setting. This might be one option to do something a bit different with those blocks.
This floral border print was also irresistible. Not sure where I'm going to use this, but I'm sure something will come along at some point. It's too pretty to just let it set in the stash.
The stash report took a bit of a hit, but there is still more going out of than coming into the stash.
Fabric out this week = 0.54 yards
Fabric out in 2019 = 17. 45 yards
More out than in for 2019
Linking up with Quiltpaintcreate for the weekly stash report.
So overall not a bad week on the stitching front. How did your week go?
