Week 19 of Stitching and De-Stashing

It's been a busy week and even busier weekend.  One of those weeks where working in some stitching time has been a challenge.  

Stitching time has been getting done either right when I get up or right before I go to bed this week. 

15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
15 minute days/May = 11/11 days
15 minute days/2019 =  119/131 days
Success rate = 90.84%

Most days were only 15 minutes, but that was enough for me to keep my sanity intact.  Next week will slow down a little bit and hopefully I can get in some good stitching time each day.  You can share how your efforts went to find time to do quitly/stitchy stuff at the end of the post.

Considering how little time there's been to sew, the stash report doesn't look too bad.

Fabric out this week = 1.56  yards
Fabric out for 2019 = 21.02 yards
More out than in for 2019

More than a yard out is pretty good for my stash busting efforts.  I finally have more than 20 yards out for the year.  If I keep up this pace, hopefully I'll make it to more than 50 yards out for the year.  Linking up with Quiltpaintcreate for the weekly stash update. 

You can link up below to share how you did on finding time to stitch.

Some weeks are like that. Mine was a good week. But your link isn't there so I can't share. Sad face.

I had a super hectic week, but just those 15 minutes helped me relax. Thanks for the motivation.

Even with a busy week, you manage to get in 7 days of stitching. That's so impressive. Congratulations and Happy Mother's Day!

Some days... 15 minutes of sewing would be a bonus!! Glad you've found a pattern to give you (at least) that much.

15 minutes a day is sometimes all it takes to breath and keep your sanity. Pretty good to keep to your 7 days even though you were busy.

My week was hectic, too. I got less out than you did from my stash. And this week isn't looking any better as I have out of town guests and a quilt retreat.

I think you meant May in your 15 minute report. Blessings,

Woo hoo - 20 yards! Way to go!
