It's been a week with a lot of uncertainty on both the public and private fronts in our house. So it was a stressful week on a couple of fronts. The family stuff got sorted out yesterday to a good ending. So at least that stress is gone. So it wasn't the best week for stitching. When it gets really stressful, a good book is a better distraction and spending even just 15 minutes in the sewing room just doesn't appeal. How did you fare this week in finding both the time and motivation to stitch?
When I'm not sleeping well, rotary cutters take on a new danger and the seam ripper sees a lot more action. So there are some days when trying to force those 15 minutes can take projects in the reverse direction. This week had a couple of those days.
- 15 minute days/week = 5/7 days
- 15 minute days/Nov = 5/7 days
- 15 minute days/2020 = 279/312
- Success rate = 89.42%
I'm still exceeding my 2020 goal to get in 15 minutes of stitching at least 85% of the time. Fingers crossed that this week is much calmer on all fronts. You can link up at the bottom of the post and share how your stitchy week went.
There's been some slow stitching going on this weekend.
I've stitched past two corners on the binding for the 2019 Christmas Mystery quilt. I don't know if I'll get this done today or not. If not I'll come close. Linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday over at Kathy's Quilts.
Photography has taken a bit of a back seat this year. But on our way to pick up take out for dinner the other night, we had to stop and photograph the fall color in downtown.
I only had my phone with me, but you use what you've got if you don't want to miss a shot. I like all the shadows the lamp light provides, it really makes the leaves just glow.
That was my week. So how did your stitchy week go?
