Weekly Recap


15 Minutes to Stitch: Week 38

I spent this week making the collage menagerie and writing a tutorial on how to make one. The plan was to just make a camel and have it be my small quilt of the month, but now that I have so many animals, it makes more sense for me to put them all in one quilt.

Because I have been cleaning the sewing room, I have been resisting the temptation to start any new quilts or to even pick up and work on any projects I find in there.  There are lots and lots of temptations and I am afraid if I resist even once, that will be it for the cleaning.

So we will have to see if I can eek out a small and simple quilt of the month or if I have to skip it this month.

I've still been cleaning my sewing room a bit at a time.  I am still looking at each item to decide whether it deserves a place in my home, and if it does, the proper size of the container that will best fit the things I want to keep, and the best place to put it.  It is slow but it is coming along well. Right now I am working on fabric scraps.

15 Minute sessions of stitching this week: 7 out of 7
15 Minute sessions of stitching this year: 227 out of 265 sessions - Only 100 days left before the end of the year
Success Rate: 86%

I thought I wasn't doing too well this year.  After all, even if I have a perfect record for the rest of the year, I still won't be able to get to 90%,.  But it looks like I was at about 83% last year, so there has been an improvement. I will be happy about the improvement.

Cleaning up the sewing room is a major undertaking, so going slow and being deliberate should help in getting it in top knot shape. At least I hope so, cause I'm doing the same on my end. You've done really well on getting your stitching time in this year. Just think what having a success rate of 80+% means. You stitch more days than you don't. Every day means just a bit more progress on projects. I try to remember it's about the progress and not about the numbers. Happy stitching this week.

You're being very good/serious about cleaning up your sewing room. Great job.
