Perspective


Well, this picture was to try to give some perspective on just how LITTLE progress I've really made on my HAED. I shouldn't minimize it, a start is a start, right?

The pages of the pattern are (approximately) 8 squares across and 10 squares down, so 80 squares to a page. There are 35 pages (not all complete pages, but for the sake of simplicity, I'm going to say they are full pages. So, that makes 2,800 total squares. I have completed 24 squares (plus some fractional ones, but I only count "full" squares. That means I am approximately 0.86% of the way done! LOL


To add to the ambitiousness of the project, I am not working only on this. I have a total of four "home" projects and one "travel" project in a rotation. The travel project is a repetitive geometric design, so it's ideal for travel. I don't want my other three home projects to get neglected. So I'm going to work one week on this project, then a week on project A, then a week on this one, then a week on project B, etc. So I will stell get time in on my other projects.


Thanks for checking it out...

You better never think in little progress when you think of your HAED, otherwise it might overwhelm you. You better thing in terms "look how much crosses I done already!!!"

Congratulations for taking the plunge and starting a HAED!! I think that any amount stitched counts as a lot - and 1 over 1 on 25 count is nothing to sneeze at! I just bought my first HAED and am both anxious and nervous to start.

I'm impressed that you;re even doing an HAED because I've yet to take that plunge! I'm sure it'll look beautiful once completed and I can't wait to see it!

Great job so far. HAED's are huge, so you should keep track of it via pages. Finishing one page is a finish. That way, you don't get discouraged!! The colors are gorgeous. Love those blues. Which one are you doing?

Wow, I think you are right HAED should really be HEAD! Yes and every stitch stitched is one less stitch to go. Good luck look forward to seeing your progress.

,86% is a start. I like your idea about how to keep your other projects going. Looking forward to seeing the project grow all five of them, actually.
