Twofer Tuesday 2: Project update

Well, I am about 8 hours…I think…into the cross stitch/needlepoint project, and this is where I’ve gotten:

One carafe and a few lines…

I appreciate that there is actually one complete(ish) shape done. And I appreciate that I’ve already gone through two of the very long strands of thread that they supplied.

But 8 hours! And this is all I have to show for it. I should have started with one of the easy, colorful, annoying ones. I may not have liked the image, but it would have gone faster. Maybe.

I remain convinced that finishing this will be like completing a triathlon.
