Stitching Stuff: Week 46 of 2021

It was one of those weeks.  My Guy and I worked late several nights last week. It's performance review season, which means lots of reading, editing and meetings for me.  So there wasn't a lot of time or energy for stitching this week. 

  • 15 minute days/week 46 = 4/7 days
  • 15 minute days/Nov = 9/13 days
  • 15 minute days/2021 = 250/317 days
  • Success rate = 78.86% 

This hasn't been one of my better years for stitching time.  It's not my worst ever, I'd have to drop below a 52% success rate for that to happen.  My stitching time is running just above average for the 10 years I've been tracking this.  So I'll take those small successes for this year. 

The Scientist in Training has had a busy year too, but she's still finding time to do a bit of handwork here at there. I'm really loving her current project. 

It's hard to believe she's only been doing this for about 11 months.  She learned to embroider the week after Christmas last year.  This is a kit she's finishing, but she's been designing her own motifs for some of the Christmas presents she's got in the works. I'm looking foward to spending some time over Thanksgiving hanging out with her in the sewing room.  

How did your stitchy week work out. Hopefully much better than mine did.
