This is the beginning of my most complicated cross stitch project ever. It’s not huge, maybe the size of a standard piece of printer paper, but there are 51 colors and over 16,500 stitches. I started it in November (2012) but only worked on it one time and didn’t touch it again until 3 days ago. So the pic was actually taken after 4 days of work.
It’s going to take a while. I’ve been experiencing pain in my elbows for a few years but it’s been getting worse. I found out pretty recently that it could be arthritis, but there’s a pretty high chance that it’s something a bit more serious, so I’m trying to take it easy for now. Crafting has become more and more painful (especially since I’m right-handed and the pain in my right elbow is more severe), but I can’t stop because I love it too much :)
