Stitching Stuff: Week 8 of 2022

Yesterday was a mostly nothing but sewing day.  I'm still feeling a bit draggy today, but since Mount Laundry didn't get climbed yesterday, it's on the agenda for this morning.  I'm hoping for another solid afternoon of stitching time once that's been conquered (or at least whittled down a bit). 

I'm getting much better about working in my 15 minutes each evening. Workdays are the hardest because some days it's all we can do to drag ourselves in and forage for dinner.  But I'm getting back in the habit of climbing the stairs no later than 7:30 PM.  Any later and it's almost impossible to reach escape velocity. 

  • 15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
  • 15 minute days/February = 19/19 days
  • 15 minute days/2022 = 48/50 days
  • Success rate = 96.0%

I'm mostly recovered from the weekend I missed in January. Fingers crossed I can keep up the momentum and stay above 95% for a couple of months.  

How are you doing on the stitching front?

Thank you for the motivation, Kate! I'm very happy with my goal, at least 3 times a week works for me ;) Well done with your week's time stitching.

Great stitching week Kate, I am glad for you!

I imagine it is hard to get in a little stitching after working all day then getting an evening meal prepared and eaten and whatever else needs doing

Hi Kate, I had a relatively good week quilting and stitching, despite having the flu. I realise that I also need more slow stitching time, so I hope that will help me keep calm :-) Have a great week and congrats on your stitching!

Being retired, I get to stitch most days. I love how cross stitching or my EPP are things that can be accomplished with just 15 minutes to stitch. Every stitch moves a project forward, doesn't it. Happy Stitching to you and thanks for the link up!

It is a good habit to have to give yourself a little stitching time every day. I am glad you are able to practice it. It definitely is hard when you are working and so many things are vying for your time.

So glad you have been able to get your stitching time in! I understand about just dragging to get some food together. Good luck this week!

Weekend stitching time is the best. I can only imagine how hard it is to go sew after working all day 😉
