About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Time for October Pie ....

Hi everyone, 

Here are my stitching/crafting pies for October.....

Okay, what is a Stitching Pie, I hear you ask?

Well, I am "stealing" yet another great idea from my dear Stitchy and Bloggy friend, Jo, from Serendipitous Stitching. Each month she includes a pie graph of which projects she has been stitching on - showing how much time, proportionally, has been spent on each one in that month.

I really like this idea, so I am copying it, thank you Jo, I hope that you don't mind, so here we go for October .....



Here is the breakdown of minutes over the month for each October project:



 This chart shows you the breakdown in %.



Again, there is only one of the projects listed above that is a knitting project this month - the London Blanket for DD, which I am getting close to finishing - nearly finished the third last colourway.  And there are four finishes again this month: Old Glory, Share the Spirit, Summertime Stitching and Xmas Hearth.

For interest's sake, I added up all of my craft minutes for the month of October; and I spent as much time  crafting this month as I did last month. 



I have also plotted the number of projects stitched upon for each month and the number of finishes ....




If you wish to check out my earlier pies, please click on the links below:




Okay, that is all from me for now.  Have a good day, everyone, 


hugs,

Isn't it amazing ti see on how many projects you were working during one month? It often is for me, too, when after a full month I check on all the projects I worked on.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

To be fair, I borrowed the idea off someone else too!
You did work on a lot of projects in October. I am going over to more solo stitching over the course of this year.

So many projects, Kaye! I can't imagine :) At least you never run out of things to stitch like I do being a one-at-a-time stitcher!

Margaret said...

Very fun to see how it all stacks up!

Bea said...

It's fun to look at that kind of information and interesting to compare with what you have done earlier.

Barb said...

For a one at a time stitcher,(maybe 2 at most) your pie is just amazing!!

Wow! You have been busy :o)
I tend to use a notebook/diary and note what I worked on each days but don't do anything else to track my stitching other than that... your graphics are impressive!
Hugs xx

I have never really kept track of my stitching time but I think it is a great idea and I love your PIES. You stitched on so many projects and I love your charts
