The weather has been nice, cool in the mornings, warm in the afternoons. It's a good time of year for yard work, which is the plan for this morning. I'm hoping for a full afternoon in the sewing room to get a good start on my stitching time for week 39. Today will hopefully be a lot more than 15 minutes, which is my goal during the work week.
A two day sinus headache took a bite out of my stitching time this week.
- 15 minute days/week = 5/7 days
- 15 minute days/September = 17/19 days
- 15 minute days/2020 = 233/263
- Success rate = 88.59%
So not a bad week, just not a perfect week on the stitching front. The big focus this week was on figuring out the path forward on my oldest UFO. I found the sashing fabric in my stash, but now I'm not sure it works as it's not quite the same red as the border fabric.
But it seems to blend just fine with the blocks and the border when I lay them it out with the border fabric and the blocks.
I tried some red X's on white. It looks fine, it just doesn't match my vision for the sashing.
My plan was to stick with just reds for the sashing and border, but maybe that's not the best option. So I tried print with small red and blue stars.
Then tried a print with larger red and blue starts. Of the two I like the larger stars. Of the 4, I like the two red and white prints best. So I may have to pin those up on the design wall this week and think on it a bit. This is the reason the quilt isn't finished, I could never settle on a setting, so it kept getting put away. Hopefully, that won't happen this time.
So how did you do this week at finding time to stitch this week?
