Making Time, Rotations and Canine Criminals

Do you ever find that finding the time to stitch seems like a job all by itself?
That is the situation I increasingly find myself in.
I've said before I might possibly be the slowest stitcher on earth. I'm thinking my new rotation may just prove it!
The 10 hour rotation just seems like a bit much for me. I get bored easily. I'm going to try a 5 hour rotation and see how it works out. Yes, another experiment, but with no more time than I'm able to squeeze in for stitching who knows how many days it will take to do 5 hours?

Anywho, here is The Blue and White Sampler after approximately two and a half hours. Approximate because there are breaks for puppy lovies and the occasional puppy 'Mom I need to go to the backyard' request.
Before:
And after:

I thought I'd share a picture of one of my partner's in stitching. Or rather, one of the things that steal stitching time.
Sam 'The Paw' AKA 'Jaws'.
"I'm innocent I tell you!"

Until next time
Happy Stitching!

Loved that you picked the blue and white for the first 5 hours. It looks great!
It is great seeing Samantha. She has grown so much! You have to give Dean fair time!

They are gorgoeus puppies and I can see how they stop you stitching! I have the same problems with my furbaby, Charlie (American Cocker Spaniel).

I think I may possibly rival you for the slowest stitcher award but you did great in your first few hours.

Stitching is supposed to be relaxing so don't feel you have to apply rules if you don't want to. Rotations are flexible so just keep altering until you're happy!

Thanks Miamina, the puppies do take a lot of time but they add so much to my life. I'm enjoying my stitching again, and that is the most important thing I think!
