Week 20 of 2020: Stitching Stuff

It's been a busy weekend. The Scientist in Training and I did an eradicate the dog hair blitz on her apartment this weekend.  Her roommate trained a service dog the last two semesters. And while Gus was a really sweet dog, both My Guy and I are allergic to animal dander. Before we can stay with the SIT when we go visit this summer, the apartment need to be deep cleaned.  So I took the carpet cleaner and we scrubbed the sleeper sofa and the carpets. Between the allergic response and being sore from the carpet cleaning, I wasn't feeling the greatest, so slept in this morning.  So my apologies for not getting the stitching time linky party up and going earlier this morning. 

This week was one full of side tracks and extra activities, so my stitching efforts fell just a bit short this week. 

15 minute days/week = 4/7 days
15 minute days/May = 13/16 days
15 minute days /2020 = 124/137 days
Success rate = 90.51%

I'm still well over my goal of 85% for 2020, so I'm not going to be upset about taking the time to spend with the SIT and getting so sucked into a book that I end up reading through my stitching time.  There are just weeks that are going to be that way. 

How was your stitchy week?

That is a great mom who will stir up her allergies for her daughter. The things we do for our children!

I understand about getting caught up in a book. Which one is it? I've been reading a lot lately too.

I'm not doing a report post this week, again, but I have been clearing out my sewing space so I can reorganize it. I've sewn a little every day, but everything else around here seems to be urgent and pushing the sewing to the back.

I've got my 15 minutes done...lots of 15
That is how I spend my evening in front of the t.v.
Stitching on a project...which I have lots to choose
from..have a great day!

Meloney said...

Lots of things we do for our girls. :) We are talking about going up and moving her room around. Not sure when that will happen, but it will mean a deep clean.

DawnyK said...

Last night, I spent time snuggling with the puppy instead of sewing. I think it was worth the trade off! Good job spending time together with your daughter and planning on fun times to come.

I was 7/7 but only because 1 day I actually only sewed for 15 minutes! It was a long day of hair cut and travel, so there wasn't much time for stitching.

Allergies are NO fun!!! Hope you're feeling better, Kate (and that you have a chance to check your emails soon, too.)

loulee said...

Count me in again. Thanks for the encouragement. I'm loving my few moments of craftiness before work, such a lovely way to start the day.

Oh you are so nice to do that deep cleaning!! I might have just left a list - haha!

Emily said...

Good for you for taking some lazy time! I need more of that. I didn't get a lot of stitching done over the weekend but I'm hoping to sew each evening this week after little guy goes to bed, except Thursday when we have a standing board game night with friends via skype.

Angie in SoCal said...

What a great Mom you are. You deserve some rest time.

Andree G. Faubert said...

Hi Kate, hope you have a good stitching week. I've finally been doing more stitching. If I can get in a little more sleeping, all will be good :-) Take care.

That sounds like a big project to clean out all the dog hair! And I am curious which book was good enough to keep you reading!
