Stitching Time: Week 17 of 2021

The week was mostly wet and cold, with a dusting of snow on Tuesday.  So it wasn't a nice week for getting out, going to work and coming home.  Friday, I ended up leaving work early with a killer headache and a low grade fever.  Thankfully I felt much better on Saturday after making a very early night of it on Friday. The headache wasn't very conductive to stitching time, so I'm a day short this week. 
  • 15 minute days/week = 6/7 days
  • 15 minute days/Apr = 20/24 days
  • 15 minute days/2021 = 107/114 days
  • Success rate = 93.86%
This is the third week this month with just 6 out of 7 days of stitching time. Still I'm making progress on many projects,  so I'm doing OK on that front.  Some weeks getting in 7 days in the sewing room is just unrealistic.  This month has 3 such weeks. I can hope that May will be better, but that's not likely.  Hopefully you've been able to fit in some good stitching time this week. 

The weather wasn't wonderful this week, so I picked up some pretty roses to brighten up the dining room table.  

They looked to be a deeper yellow in the store, they didn't look so dark once I got them home. Still, they are lovely.   It's been nice to have roses on the table for dinner each night, even if dinner is often just sandwiches.  

Hope you've been able to stitch at least some this week. Please link up below to share what've you've been up to with needle and thread.

6 of 7 days is grea, Kate. Don't be so hard on yourself, sometimes we just need to relax and take care of ourselves. Roses are gorgeous flowers.
Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hope you are feeling better - sometimes flowers on the table is just what we need - I need to get some! I haven't gotten any for the table in ages.

I’m glad your headache didn’t get worse and keep you down all weekend. 6 out of 7 days isn’t bad at all but maybe this week will be even better.

I am sorry you haven't been feeling well. You definitely deserve roses to brighten up your day.

6 out of 7 days is still pretty impressive considering you are also working full time. Good for you!! It was cold, damp, and windy here so was a good week for me to stay indoors and sew. I splurge on fresh flowers every once in a while too because they certainly brighten up the table.

Hope you are feeling better. We had a glorious end to a long weekend today was really lovely out, not to hot and not to cold just perfect. We went for a really long walk and ended up along the beach again.
