I don't know what my problem is. Why do I need to do this to myself? My last embroidery project took me the better part of a year to complete and is now folded up in a box somewhere. So I decided to do another one. One which is more complicated, with many, many more stitches. No to mention that I have far fewer hours available each day for stitching. My current estimate says it will take me 3 years and 9 months to complete starting last Monday. Below you see one week's progress.
