Proof that I suffer from overambitiousness:This is my first cross stitch sampler. Ever.
It requires 12,080 stitches.
This fact should be stated on the front of the package, to help those with tendencies to INSANITY. Namely, me. I was fooled by its mere size of 5×7″.
HOWEVER: I am chugging away, slowly but surely, and this is going to be finished in time for Father’s Day 2011. Even though it was supposed to be his Christmas 2002 present.
Really, it IS going to be finished. It is! Just wait and see.
