Well, after finishing my first page I was really motivated, so I set myself an ambitious goal of a page in three weeks. And I did it! Last night I finished the second page (page 4 in the booklet). I just love the tree and the leaves. So many colors (I believe I am up to 60 something now). I have already started preparing for page 5 (24 new blends!) but I don't know if I can do it in three weeks again. I spent 222 hours on it so far (93.5 of them on page 4, 128.5 on page 3).

I calculated yesterday that in any given week, I spend 36 hours at work, 10 hours reading (while traveling to and from work) and 30 hours stitching... Wink

And I am still waiting on you to start Wink I have a feeling I will need the motivation Very Happy 54 pages is sooo much, I feel I will never get it done... Wink

That looks wonderful!!! Well done!!! The tree looks great, and I love the bunny!!! There is no way I could get that much stitching time in a week that I have to work - maybe if I didn't have to cook, clean, or do laundry... 15 hours is a great week for me.

I read on your blog that 4 pages =14K+ stitches, and you say you have 54 pages - did you get the large print chart? That might be why I feel like it takes me so much longer, because each of my regular-print pages has over 7,000 stitches on each one - even my HaED chart has less per page, so I can get that sense of accomplishment Smile

Hey,
I wish I had 4 pages done... The chart starts on page 3, so I did page 3 and 4. The chart goes to page 56 so 54 are charts. So, about 7000 stitches a page is about right Smile. I got the regular print chart, and enlarged a working copy 200%.

Don't worry, I'll be playing catch-up with you all along I feel- there's absolutely NO WAY I would get anything close to 30 hours a week stitching in, in fact lately there have been quite a few weeks with 0 hours stitching in! Shocked

I've got some photos of my parking efforts so I'll post those up soon... keeep up the good work inspriing us all!! Very Happy

Remember, I finished 2 TWs in the same year - I'm far beyond medication's help now Smile Not to mention I now have 3 Chatelaine WIPs, alongside a TW and Lady & Unicorn. Shock treatment might be my only remaining option... Or hitting the lottery, so I can stitch every waking hour Shocked
