Round Three: Lighthouse
I was zooming along on Bent Creek's Lighthouse on Thursday and Friday and then...Saturday. On Friday the dude texted and asked if we could have dinner with his boss on Saturday night. We could (it was lovely, by the way). And then we learned at the last minute we were hosting Sunday dinner--that meant errands and cleaning. So Saturday was a bust. Still the two days I did work on it showed marked progress. I alternated the dreaded "white house stitching" with stitching the rocks at the bottom.
Last time, in August 2015
What I like about this rotation method is that three days of stitching is noticeable, but doesn't sap my desire to continue with the project. With a ten hour rotation, it might take 5-7 days to reach that amount of stitching time. And if you had a few busy days, it extended and extended the time you were "working" on that project. (I can't be the only one that feels like I've been working on a project "forever" even when I don't get that much stitching time on it, can I?) The other nice thing about this rotation--and this will become clearer in the coming months--is that each project gets a different three days. So, for example Lighthouse got a Thursday, Friday, and Saturday this month, but next month I'll be stitching on it on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Over time, each project will "equal out" to some extent.
