Well, I managed to only get 3 rows done on 'insanity' this week. I wasn't expecting much and it's not enough to take a picture of. It took me almost two hours to do the first row, granted I was distracted slightly by TV. Upon nearly completing the next row, I realized I had gone down several stitches as 2x1 and had to redo them. Not easy with the stitch size and amount of thread already on the back. I had time during the week to work on it more given I was home sick from work, but I wasn't able to give it the amount of concentration it would need. I tried to but managed to only find I had messed up on the last stitch, another 2x1 but the other way then some conflict with the blends that I didn't want to deal with. Oh well. This piece is going to take me a long time even if I didn't screw up. I'm very tempted to scrap what I've done so far and either do half cross-stitch or find a fabric with larger holes. The reason for this particular set up was I don't know where or how to find a piece big enough to accomodate it unless I ended up stitching several together after I had finished. 18ct would cause it to be approximately 44"x32". At least i think it would be stitched quicker. Thoughts or ideas?
I did however manage to rip and post my videos from the showcase in September (yes I know, long time ago but I did only get the DVD in march) and my last competition. I should have the pictures from the photographer mid week.
