Week 46 of 2019: Stitching Stuff

The heavy winter coat came out of the hallway closet for the first time this year.  The cold and windy most days this week made it a nice week to stay in and stitch.  Unfortunately, the end of year stuff at work hasn't slowed down yet, so there were a few nights where it was just eat, get in my 15 minutes of stitching time and go to bed.  Hopefully fitting in at least 15 minutes of stitching time was a breeze for you this week. 

Having a wide variety of things going on in the sewing room makes it a lot easier to find something that you can work on for 15 minutes. Shopping the stash for a new project was my chosen as my "only have 15 minutes activity" a couple of nights last week.  With that I was able to maintain a perfect week on finding the time to play with fabric. 

15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
15 minute days/November = 16/16 days
15 minute days/2019 = 289/320 days
Success rate = 90.31%

So it was a good week on that front.  My stash usage is dismal at the moment, so I'm only writing a stash report once a month.  I've got a few mystery projects in the works and that fabric doesn't get counted out till I start assembling the quilt, so at some point, my numbers will look much better.  

So how did you do at fitting in stitching time this week?

So sorry work has been such a bear for you. As for the winter coat, I’m starting to feel up for some really cold weather, but then, we’re heading south for the winter. If we’re going to see any here at home, it needs to get with it. The worst I’ve seen was hooded sweatshirt weather...or else rain parka...but that’s just par for the course.

The end of the year is such a busy time. You've done well fitting it all in. I broke out the heavy coat one day too. And today is just gorgeous. Go figure.

The last few weeks have been horrible on stash out, but mostly due to quilting tops and not much construction going on!

I have been not stitching daily and not worrying about it (but my goal is much lower). Life has been so full lately with lots of good things. One morning, I did take 17 minutes to sew some bonus HST's which was very good for my soul. Hope this next week allows you to breathe.

Our weather is still all over the shop. This week we are heading for 42C day but then the next day it will be dropping again (which i don't mind in the least) but the nights have been really cool so each night you don't know if need more blankets or not. I have 1 month to go before I have my Christmas leave and I can't wait for a month off.

Hopefully this week will ease up for you? I was able to get good stitching time in last week ... but probably closer to 6/7. This week will be tough; I meant to bring handwork into work to play with over lunch time, and forgot. Ugh! :)
