Another Week in 15 Minute Increments

The peak period of work is over, for the most part, and things are moving at a more normal pace. This means I had enough time to rest and stitch, and even do some housework that was postponed.

Most of my time has been spent slow reading and slow stitching for the crazy quilt class. Poor lighting and poor eyesight leads to imperfect stitches, but hopefully they will be fine in volume. I have many more stitches to go!

I also sewed a bit more on On Ringo Lake. I want to keep making progress on that quilt.

Here are the final results of the week:

15 Minute sessions of stitching this week:  7 out of 7
15 Minute sessions of stitching this year:  147 out of 161 sessions
Success rate: 91%

I'm still tickled by this success rate. I expected it to be much lower and expected to start playing catch-up to get the rate back up in the summer.

Congrats on finding time to stitch even with your busy week. Finding those 15 minutes is always a challenge, but I'm always so glad I did.

Just a note. Your link on the blog post didn't work. It pulled up the Microsoft search engine and said it couldn't find a matching site. Must have been an error in the address you linked. Just thought you would want to know.

Thanks for letting me know Kate. When I add a link to your site, instead of a blank form, it gives me the form that I filled out last time, so I have to delete the old link to add the new one. I must not have deleted the old one completely last time. I could not edit or delete that entry so I added a new one.

I have taken that crazy quilt class and many of the subsequent ones offered. You will enjoy them and you will be amazed at the success you will have. You're off to a good start.

Nice job on finding some 15 minute increments to sew. Beautiful work on your quilt. Wondering what the pink flower blooming at the bottom of your post is named?

Shasta Matova said...

Judy, that plant is called spirea. It blooms just when the kids are let out for school.

I think your stitches look great and I'm sure it's not because I have old eyes, too. Your ladies (in a previous post) look great!

Tanya said...

Your stitching project looks great. I wish I could discipline myself to get more sewing done every week.

Pam said...

I think your stitches look really good. We are all extra critical of work we have done. I post what I think of as rather lame fmq but I get lots of compliments. Your stitches look pretty and will make a lovely quilt. Also thank you for the comment you left on my blog. Blogger has not yet worked out all the bugs so you and everyone who commented on my post came up as a no reply blogger. AARRGGH I hope they work this out soon.

You have done well to keep up your stitching through the busy time! I like how the red and yellow threads look against the piecing in your crazy patchwork.
