Also on Pintangle Sharon is running Work in Progress Wednesday to try and encourage people with large projects that are progressing very slowly or may have stalled all together to try and complete them. I am linking my work on my millennium sampler with WIP Wednesday as since I have included it on my blog I have managed to move forward and I am starting to see a possible finish date.
This week I decided to see how long I actually spent working on the sampler and considering there isn't very much progress to see I was staggered that it had taken me four and a half hours. I worked on the top of the column and I also added quite a few single stitches throughout the work where there was just one stitch of a colour waiting to be added. To get this finished this year I am going to have to find some more hours for it from somewhere.
Even though progress is very slow I am pleased with what I have achieved and I have actually started to like the piece again. As it was taking me so long I had become very bored and disillusioned with it.
Do use the TAST button to take a look at pintangle as it is an excellent site. It has a wealth of inspiration and ideas and loads of instructions for stitches plus hints and tips. It is well worth visiting.
