Lack of Stitching Recap

It is time to document my progress on stitching 15 minutes a day. As the title shows, very little stitching has been happening.

I bought this stitchery kit from the thrift store several years ago and have been working on it about once a year or so, so it was about time to add a few more stitches. I don't think the pattern cover was in the kit, but it does have the direction sheet, so how the colors look together will be somewhat of a  surprise.

The green was done last year. The crosses on the green cross stitches have not been finished, but I was in the mood to add the red this year.  Is this 15 minutes worth of stitchery? I'm not sure, but I will round up and count it anyway!  Stitching with yarn is not as easy or fun as stitching with embroidery floss, and as much as I am tempted to use floss, I would like to keep true to the period and use the kit as it was intended.

15 Minute sessions of stitching this week:  1 out of 7
15 Minute sessions of stitching this year:  184 out of 224 sessions
Success rate: 82%

That's all the stitching I've done since my last recap, which causes my success rate to plummet from 90% to 82%.   I am hoping to end the year above 80% so I'm not disappointed. In fact, I am happy, because I don't expect the rest of the year to be as busy and I will likely be able to increase my numbers by the end of the year.

What a sweet pattern! And you reminded me of my ongoing UFO stitchery - it's been years in the making, lol!

A very cute little stitchery. I have a project like that, it gets stitches every once in a while. Hope this week is calmer and you can get more stitching time.
