We spent this last week hiking and just hanging out together. We both had vacation that needed to be used, so we rented a cottage in Eureka Springs, Arkansas and socially distanced somewhere else for a few days. That may seem risky, but at least Eureka Springs has mandatory mask rules. We don't have that here at home. I took plenty of hand stitching to work on while we were away. It wasn't hard to find at least 15 minutes to make a bit of progress on that front. How did you do at finding at least 15 minutes of stitching time each day? You can link up and share at the bottom of this post.
- 15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
- 15 minute days/October = 10/10 days
- 15 minute days/2020 = 254/284 days
- Success rate = 89.44%
It's been a pretty good year on the stitching front. With all the social distancing, it's been a lot easier to work in some sewing time most days. The hand stitching this week was on the binding for Storm at Sea.
Stitching on the binding will continue today. I've only turned 2 corners so far. SAS is a big quilt, 96" X 112", so it's going to take a few more days to get that binding all stitched down. Linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday.
It was beautiful weather for hiking, the leaves are just starting to turn.
We hiked around Lake Leatherwood just outside of Eureka Springs. Even with the leaves changing there are still a few blooming things growing along the trail.
And a few butterflies are still flitting about gathering up the last of the nectar.
This Pearl Crescent was taking a rest before moving on to the next set of asters.
So we had an excellent week of being outdoors, hanging out on the back porch to read or stitch and ordering take out from some of our favorite restaurants in the area. How did your week go on the stitchy front?
