Stitching Stuff: Week 47 of 2022

Sorry that the posting of the 15 Minutes to Stitch linky party is a bit late this week. I simply forgot that yesterday was Saturday and didn't think to get the post ready to auto publish this morning.  Some type of respiratory virus seems to be trying to take hold, so sleeping in this morning seemed wise. It wasn't till I opened my computer that I remembered it was Sunday.  Do you ever have days like that? Maybe it's time for calendar reminders on my phone?  

Stitching time this week fell victim to Thanksgiving travel plans and an evening out with friends.  

  • 15 minute days/week = 5/7 days
  • 15 minute days/Nov = 22/30 days
  • 15 minute days/2022 = 184/337 days
  • Success rate = 54.6%
So it wasn't a bad week on the stitching front. November was actually a pretty good month comparatively, it's the most stitching time I've managed since last March. Being retired the whole month may have something to do with the improvement in finding stitching time.  Hopefully I can keep up the momentum in December. Holiday plans can be big disrupters.   

So how was your stitching week?

  1. I tend to forget what day it is - I have no set schedule and that changes things for remembering what day it is I think - if you have no schedule of meetings, certain tv shows - whatever it is not so important. Hope you do not get sick again

  2. It isn't easy to adjust to being retired. I think I found it easier to focus on deadlines when I was working 50 hours a week. Now it's so easy to procrastinate.

  3. Retirement does make it harder to keep track of the days of the week. Congrats on your good numbers for November.

  4. Being retired does make it hard to keep track of the days. And not feeling well doesn’t help either. I hope you are on the mend.

  5. Hi Kate, I hope that you will feel better! Congrats on your increased stitching time - it's lovely to be able to play during the day instead of only in the evening when you're tired. Take care :-)

  6. It was my Melbourne trip last week and I was pretty pooped so didn't join in and last week was all sorts of extra work so I could go on leave, hopefully you didn't get the lurgy and had a reasonable week.
