More Rails and 1CAD

I am late in posting my week's progress, but better late than never.

15 Minutes to Stitch

I am doing two ongoing projects. One is the 15 minutes to stitch whereby I try to stitch for 15 minutes a day.  Last week, I worked on three different projects. One was sewing more rail fence blocks. I also worked on my genealogy scrapbook, which is mostly paper but does involve sewing. I was showing a friend at work my book of quilts, and she asked me to make one for her, so I looked for fabric on sale. She designed the quilt and I spent some time figuring out the math to make it the size she wanted.

15 Minute sessions of stitching this week: 7 out of 7

In making this report, I see  have been negligent in reporting my progress.  I was looking at 111 total sessions, but it's been 125 days. I don't know how much sewing I have done in those missing 14 days. I know I have been trying to sew every day, but I also know I've missed days. To keep myself honest, I will take credit for half the time.

15 Minute sessions of stitching this year: 107 out of 125 sessions
Success Rate: 86%

 My 2018 end of the year average was 85% and I hope to beat that this year, so I am still on course for this year

One Card a Day

In my last post, I talked about the one card a day that starts in June. 

Being the rule follower that I am, I have already started these little cards.

Just having fun and being playful. I don't think of it as making art, but just having fun putting something on these small index cards.

Here are some cards, all together. The first one is watercolor only, the second one is watercolor and marker, and the third one was marker only.

Great pic of the fluffy dandelions!! I really like the way your rail fence is coming. You've done a great job with the 15 minutes a day. Your cards are so pretty!

Your photo of those dandelions is lovely. You always seem to do so well with your 15 minutes a day -85% over the year was very impressive. I'm glad to see the first of your cards - are you enjoying doing them?

Wonderful that you are succeeding in you goal to stitch at least 15 minutes a day. Maybe I should think about such a goal for my self too. BTW, lovely cards, always a good thing to be creating. Cheers!
