Stitching Stuff for Week 20 of 2022

Things were supposed to have slowed down at work two weeks ago. They didn't.  It's been 6 weeks with lots of overtime and not a lot of time off.  That hasn't been very compatible with finding time to stitch. 

  • 15 minute days/week 19 = 2/7 days
  • 15 minute days/week 20 = 3/7 days
  • 15 minute days/May = 5/14 days
  • 15 minute days/2022 = 99/134 days
  • Success rate = 73.88%
My goal for the year was to stitch at least 75% of the time, so I'm not doing so well on that front. I'm hoping this audit is THE project for the year and I won't have anything else that requires that much effort.

In addition to a busy work schedule, My Guy and I had been busy planning a graduation party for the Scientist in Training.  The SIT graduated with honors last weekend with BS degrees in chemistry, biochemistry and psychology.  

We had a great weekend celebrating with her school friends on Saturday, then with the rest of the family on Sunday.   Congratulations SIT!  Her next step?  Graduate school at Texas A&M.  We are debating if the SIT gets a name upgrade on the blog.  We've not come to a definite decision on that as yet.   

My apologies for not getting a post up last week. Unfortunately my allergies didn't respond well to the sudden warm up and high winds we had over the that weekend. I pretty much spent Sunday trying to cope with watery eyes, a sore throat and runny nose. I mostly just slept while everyone else partied.  Hopefully with the audit over and life getting mostly back to normal, there won't be any more interruptions to the regularly scheduled linky party. 

How have you been doing on finding time to stitch?

Congratulations to SIT, she has probably graduated from "in Training" now. Mo is nearly halfway through her degree and we can't believe how quickly that has gone. Fingers crossed work is more manageable for you now.
