The last day of January is going to be cold and really windy, perfect stitching weather. The weather this last month has been really conductive to spending time in the sewing room. That's definitely helped get me back on track in terms of working in some stitching time most days. How about you? Are you finding more or less time to stitch in 2021?
Work was cooperative this week and we didn't have to work very late any evening, plus we took our monthly day off on Friday. It was a good week on the stitching time front.
- 15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
- 15 minute days/Jan = 28/30 days
- 15 minute days/2021 = 28/30 days
- Success rate = 93.33%
I've only missed two days of stitching time this year, so I'm off to a good start on that front. You can link up and share how your first month of 2021 is going at the bottom of the post.
With all the nasty weather this month, I've had a few sewing sessions that lasted most of the afternoon/evening. It's been nice finding the time to sew, but I paid for those sessions with a sore shoulder and aching back the next morning. I had similar problems back in 2018, so replaced my student desk with an adjustable sewing table. That helped a lot. So why are the problems back again? I've been using an old office chair for the past 15 years. It won't adjust anymore and that was causing me to hunch over the sewing table. So it was probably time to replace it. The replacement came Thursday.
It took a day to get the height right. But I was able to sew all afternoon yesterday without a back ache. Definitely a good decision. I'm hoping for another full afternoon of pain free stitching today.
So how did your stitching go this week?
