It's time to update my progress on the 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge. I'm not perfect anymore.
As you know all last week, I sewed sashing pieces for On Ringo Lake. I've been working on the sashing for several weeks, in fact. So when it came time to do more sewing, I could not find the motivation to do it. I do know that if I keep at it, eventually I will be done. I know that the bigger pieces show more progress and once I get through the sashing, there won't be any small pieces to sew.
But instead, I wanted to watch last season's Relative Race and do genealogy research. I did do a lot - cooking, cleaning, working, filing taxes, grocery shopping, walking the dog, etc.. Genealogy and quilting tend to compete and this week, genealogy won.
I was almost going to clock a big fat zero for the whole week and then I thought about the challenge, and I didn't want to go from perfection to a total dud, so I managed to get about 30 minutes of sewing today. Having this challenge check-in did motivate me to get more done.
Days with stitching this week: 2 out of 7 days
Days with stitching this month: 20 out of 25 days
Days with stitching this year: 79 out of 84 days
Success rate: 94%
That's still an A on most grading scales, so I will take it.
