Week 25 of 2019: Stitching Stuff

We are just a week shy of being half way through 2019.  Can you believe that?  I'm definitely not as far along with the UFO list as I'd hoped to be.  Unfortunately, finding stitching time has been harder this year than it was last year.  Some days finding even just 15 minutes has been difficult. 

This week was another rough one on the work front.  Work had to come home two nights so I could finish off the midyear reviews.  That didn't leave much time/energy to fit in some stitching time those evenings.  Here's the damage for the week. 

15 minute days/week =  5/7 days
15 minute days/June = 14/22 days
15 minute days/2019 = 150/173 days
Success Rate = 86.71%

My goal for 2019 was to work towards a 90% success rate.  I have half the year to see if I can recover that.

My lack of stitching time shows up in stash report too. 

Fabric out this week = 0.15 yards
Fabric out for 2019 = 27.29 yards

There are three projects in the current rotation that need borders, Vintage Dresses, Storm at Sea and Daisy Chain.  So in the near future each quilt will need a backing. That should really help with the stash numbers over the next couple of months.  

So how did your stitchy week go?

That's too bad that you missed out on sewing time this week. Work sure can cut into our sewing time! I hope this week is better.

It's a drag when the job cuts into your quilting time! Some weeks are like that, but I hope things settle down for you next week.


Sorry about work interrupting your stitching time--I will have to talk to them about that?????
Hope you plan to watch the race today--the race isn't so much to my kind of track--but it is D W's last race for reporting--I sure will miss him next year--and I am not all that crazy about NBC's coverage of the races either--
oh well--!!!!!!!!!!!!!
luv, di

I had an ok week, but it would have been better if stash hadn't come home with me! LOL

Ah tough week, hope next week is more sewing oriented. I can't believe it's almost half way through 2019. WOW!

Sorry work got in the way. I'm probably going to have a rough one this week a lot of our clients leave things to the last minute that makes end of month deadlines hard and I had an extra day off last week means I'm playing catch up.
