I'm hoping for a bit of a slow down day today, it's been a hectic week. Work has been busy, I went in early and stayed late several days last week. I'm way behind on comment replies and blog reading, but have been able to keep up with my stitching time. Some weeks there just aren't enough hours in the day. A few nights last week, getting in just the bare minimum of 15 minutes was a challenge. How are you doing at fitting in a bit of stitching time each day?
It wasn't a great week for stitching time, but I managed to fit in the bare minimum of 15 minutes each day.
- 15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
- 15 minute days/September = 24/26 days
- 15 minute days/2020 = 240/270 days
- Success rate = 88.89%
One sewing room goal this week was to decide on the sashing for the Red, White and Blue Stars quilt. This was my original choice.
It's not quite the same color as the border, but it blends OK with it and the other stars. Not all the stars have the exact same shade of red in them either. But it seemed too busy, so after striking out with options at the LQS, I ordered another fabric.
The Scientist in Training likes the second option. My Guy likes the first option. So no consensus from the family. I'm leaning towards option one at the moment. I've got both options out and up on the small design wall, but just haven't been in the sewing room long enough this week to really contemplate either option. That's part of the stitching plan for this afternoon.
So how did your stitchy week go?
