January is more than half way over. How did that happen? Usually this first month of the year passes rather languidly. Not this year it seems. There's lots in the sewing room that I'd like to make progress on, it's been slow going in spite of my better efforts to get to the sewing room this week.
Last week was really good on the stitching front.
- 15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
- 15 minute days/Jan = 14/16 days
- 15 minute days/2021 = 14/16 days
- Success rate = 87.5%
I'm finally back on track with my 2021 goal to stitch at least 85% of the days this year. January didn't get off to the best start for me. I'm hoping things are lining out and I've got my working during the day/sewing at night rhythm back.
Last Sunday, Shasta of High Road Quilter posted statistics about finishes for the last year and then a summary of her lifetime quilting stats. I set up an Excel chart back in 2019 to track starts and finishes by year.
I was doing pretty well at finishing what I started till 2013. Starting 12 quilts in one year was unrealistic and I'm still struggling to get more than half of those finished. I've started 90 quilts and have finished 68 of those for a 76% completion rate. If I stick with my plans for new starts and finishes this year, I'm hoping to get the completion stat up to 80%. I'm going to need to keep getting in those 15 minutes most days to make that happen.
How did you do this week at finding time to stitch?
