Week 45 of 2019: Stitching Stuff

It's been a beautiful weekend, lots of warm sunshine. Hard to believe the forecast tomorrow is for cold with snow showers. We took advantage of the good weather to pay the Scientist in Training a visit.  So my 15 minutes of stitching the last few days has been of the hand variety, but that still counts.  



Work has been a bit of a zoo, so I've worked late a few nights the last week. It was a struggle a couple of nights to make the climb to the sewing room, but it happened.  

15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
15 minute days/November = 9/9 days
15 minute days/2019 = 282/313 days
Success rate = 90.10%

After last week, I'm back to meeting my goal of stitching 90% of the time in 2019.  Hopefully I can stay on track with this goal from here on out. 

You can scroll to the bottom of the post to link up. Up next are a few photos to show off what a beautiful fall day it was. 

There were still a few pops of color in all the brown. 





And a few butterflies out and about looking for that last hit of nectar. 


  




So how did your stitchy week go?

love seeing all the plants and things - we might actually get some snow flurries too - I would be surprised but nothing about this fall has been predictable for sure

As usual, a bust for yardage out! I need to get a big project done to bust the numbers just a bit before the year end.

I've always considered purples/plums a very autumnal color! Good stitching time for you -- I've been pretty consistent myself, grabbing some time during lunch, if I wasn't going to have my evening free! Way to go, us!! :)

It is always fun to spot a bit of color in the brown of autumn. Your photographs are beautiful!

Amazing that so many pretty flowers are still blooming there. You get the bad weather tomorrow and we get it Tuesday. We don't expect any snow though, but I hear you'll get some.

I went to a sit and sew and it was disappointingly difficult. I was using someone else's machine and they had a very fine thread in it, so I'm going to blame that. But I just couldn't see it. I'm going to try for a few minutes each day on my machine and see if it is any better.

Lovely photo's. Our weather has been up and down, rained everyday we were away, not that it mattered. Today was hot and tomorrow is going to be cold.

Well done on your stitching. So great to have gotten your numbers back up. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos.

What pretty late summer pictures! I am in Puerto Rico this week for work, so enjoyed the sun while everyone north was getting snow!
