such as work, household chores, etc.?
Sometimes I wish the world would go away so I could just stitch in peace for as long as I'd like, sometimes for only a few minutes so I could just finish that last bit.
Since that's not always possible, I try to split my day into two parts, morning and evening.
I complete my morning chores, and then give myself an hour to work on a piece, go back and work on some more obligations and then have some time in the evening.
Next to that, I always have work ready so that I can take a few stitches or sew at my machine and make some progress, little by little. There's lots of moments during certain chores where's there's a waiting time, like waiting for some cleaning product to to it's thing or while cooking, for example, when I can take a few stitches. It doesn't sound like it's worth it, but in my experience it really ads up!
Of course, it doesn't always work out the way you plan, but that's what rainy day Sundays are for - to grab some comfy socks, a hot mug of tea, and settle down to a stretch of stitching...
it all balances out in the end!
