It's been a challenge to fit in some stitching time here and there, but it turned out to be a pretty good week in terms of getting in my 15 minutes of stitching time each day. How did you do?
Here's my stats for the week:
15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
15 minute days/June = 22/30 days
15 minute days/July = 6/6 days
15 minute days/2019 = 164/187
Success rate = 87.7%
June wasn't such a good month, but I'm working hard to recover in July. Not sure I'll be able to hit 90% by the end of the month, but that's the goal. You can link up at the bottom of the post and share how your stitching week went.
Unfortunately the stash management isn't going so well either. My sister introduced me to a new to us quilt shop. I found the coolest chemistry fabric that had to come home. I promise photos next week, I just haven't gotten the fabric, the camera and the right light all in the same place to get any good photos. That new addition pushed me farther into the red this year. Here's the numbers:
Fabric out this week = 1.24 yards
Fabric out for 2019 = 29.16 yards
More fabric in than out
I can probably recover with two or three quilt backs. There's still 6 months left in the year. Hopefully, I can resist any other cool fabric.
My family usually celebrates my birthday over the 4th of July holiday. My Guy got me a really cool new macro lens. Of course I had to try it out in Mom's garden.
There were lots more blooming things, but I'll spare you the full exposure. I'm looking forward to playing with this lens some more in the future.
So how did you do with finding time to stitch over the holiday? Was it hard to fit in stitching with the fireworks, picnics, or other celebrations this week?
