Last Week's Quilting Progress and Beautiful Fall Colors

It's getting colder so the leaves of our trees are turning color.

I'm going to sneak in a post about my progress for last week before it is time to post this week's progress.  Unfortunately, I didn't get a lot of quilting done.

I had an electrician come by on Saturday work on my porch light fixtures, but I figured I might as well have him check all the outlets while he was here, which meant I needed to rearrange things so he had access to outlets and clean the baseboards and under furniture, etc.  So my sewing time on Thursday and Friday was taken over by cleaning time.

Then Saturday, I spent my sewing time with the electrician. He got everything done on his list, which means I can check things off my list.  I finally now have light again from the front porch and the back porch,  just in time for daylight savings time.

On Sunday, I went to a cemetery tour to learn about the history of the city and the cemetery, and to look at the beautiful trees. I took a lot of pictures of individual burial markers we saw along the tour so I was able to sneak in some genealogy time. Even if it isn't my family, hopefully I can help someone else with their genealogy.

15 Minutes to Stitch

All of my sewing time was spent quilting Rey on the Droid quilt.  I am loving all the texture it is creating. I am not used to quilting in small time increments. I usually try to do it all at the same time, while I am in the same mood and frame of mind, so that my stitches can be consistent.  It isn't too bad though, since I am making different designs on the different sections.

My measly progress as of Sunday was:

15 Minute sessions of stitching this week:  2 out of 7
15 Minute sessions of stitching this year:  255 out of 308 sessions
Success rate: 82%

Your trees are such fantastic colours! Ours turned yellow, the wind blew, it was all over in a couple of days.

The fall colors in your neck of the woods are gorgeous! Sounds like you got a lot of necessary stuff done, which unfortunately often means you don't get to sew. You are still doing very well on the stitching front. Managing to fit in some stitching time at an 80% rate is actually pretty high. Hope this week has less "have to do" and more "want to do" stuff in it.
