I did 3 more lengths of the Kreinik and decided to stop and check again - I was amazed! I'd reached 1001 stitches and it felt like a lot less hard work than the time I'd done 852 stitches. I am very happy I was able to reach this point, even though it meant going to bed at silly o'clock as it completely made up for the lack of work friday. I have another 23 days left to stitch this and around 9000 stitches left, some of which will be replaced with beads which is probably going to be slower to do.
Total backstitches: 42.76 inches
See you tomorrow!
