This project was started in April of 2016. And at some point, I calculated how long it would take to finish this, it was like 15 years (I’m making up numbers but it was a big number). And that was ridiculous. I think a normal non-crafty person would probably just hide it in a bag and toss it. But I decided to work on it more and after some time, those 15 years were cut in half to 8 years. Then as I saw progress and started loving on it, I worked on it daily and had monthly, weekly and daily goals to finish. Next thing I know, it’s now become a real possibility to get this project finished this year! I know…. My 15 year project could be finished this year, 3 years after starting. On Friday night I finished page 6 which is the bottom page for this section.
I unrolled the project because it’s a monumental time and it is about 20 inches long! And, it’s about 60% complete.
So how will I finish the remaining 40% this year? I have so many columns on pages 3/7 and then on pages 4/8 (which are partial pages). So, I need to complete 2 columns per month in order to finish this project. That’s really pushing myself and while this has been a focus project in the cross stitch part of my crafty life I haven’t regularly completed 2 columns per month. Sometimes I do it and sometimes I do not do it. But this year, I’m going to really try hard to get this done. I broke it down to daily stitches of doing 1 box and 2 lines per day. And when the 2 columns are done, I will move onto Gamer.
Happy Sunday, friends!
Always fun to get it done sooner than you think! Yay for you!
