Still Stitching

I'm still plugging away at this cross stitch embroidery project. I've been working on it for about three months now and, if my calculations are correct, I'm almost 28% of the way finished. My whole right side hurts, especially my wrists. At night, my dreams have recently been incorporating elements of stitchery. I thought I would be bored by now, but I'm feeling more invested than ever. I can't wait to see how this turns out.

Stitching Time

So I'm still working on this big cross stitch. As of today, I'm just over 20% of the way finished with it. That's about 101,000 stitches so far. I was worried that it wouldn't look like anything when it was done, but now that I've finished a section with some recognizable detail (and it actually looks like something) I'm feeling a lot more confident about continuing to stitch. If I can keep up this pace I might be finished way ahead of schedule. I was expecting it to take about a year and a half or two years to complete but now I think more like 7 months. We'll see.
