!5 Minutes to Stitch Update
As you know, I've been trying to make progress on my quilting every day, even if it is only 15 minutes at a time. I was more successful this week with touching fabric than I was last week. Sometimes it takes a while to find a good routine when the schedule changes.
Other times a shift in the schedule shakes things up so much, everything falls in place in a better way. In fact, I had a very productive week, working, cooking and cleaning, walking the dog, taxiing people to the airport, house sitting, changing internet providers, making up lost work time, genealogy research, and even assembling an office chair.
AND, I managed to quilt five out of the seven days. The goal is always to try to stitch every single day. And as usual, I am giving myself credit for all seven days, because I was able to make up the time I missed the other days.
I worked on sewing more sashing for On Ringo Lake - cutting fabric, drawing lines, sewing, trimming, pressing. There is still more to go, but I am making progress. With the limited time, the routine of making the same block over and over again doesn't bother me at all. I can see that progress is being made, and when the sun shines, I admire the colors of the quilt all over again.
So with my very flexible definition of "days," here are my results!
Days with stitching this week: 7 out of 7 days
Days with stitching this month: 18 out of 18 days
Days with stitching this year: 77 out of 77 days
Success rate: 100%
