What a week! Major deep freeze here with lots of snow. It wasn't usual winter weather, especially for this time of year. But it can and does get really cold here some winters, so Oklahoma is better prepared than Texas. We had power and heat during the worst of it. Hopefully that's the worst of the cold stuff for 2021.
We worked from home most of the week. My work day isn't any shorter, but I do get my commute time back when we don't go in to the office. But I do tend to work later when I'm home, so it tends to balance out. Still it was a good week as far as working in some stitching time each day.
- 15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
- 15 minute days/Feb = 20/20 days
- 15 minute days/2021 = 49/51 days
- Success rate = 96.08%
I've only missed two days of stitching time this year so far. I'm making good progress on projects as a result of getting in at least a few minutes a day. So it's been a good year for me on the stitching front so far. You can link up at the bottom of the post to share how you've been doing on working in some play time with needle and thread.
I posted back in January about the Scientist in Training deciding to give embroidery a try. She was looking for something to help her relax with when school gets to be too crazy. School's been crazy, so she's been attempting to relax a lot. Look at what she's been working on.

She's been using YouTube videos to learn any new stitches needed to complete a kit. Though she wants me to help her figure out how to make the tassels needed to finish off the gray, white and green project. But she's done such a good job on all of these while surviving year 4 of her chemistry program. She's been getting in her 15 minutes most days, it's how she winds down so she can go to bed.
That's it for me this week. How was your stitchy week?
