Before I get started explaining my panic I must say hello to all my newest followers!
Waving hi from Ohio.
Hope you enjoy the blog and my stitchiness.
Okay, what has me in a panic this morning?? I received my SamSarah Perpetual Calendar charts, paper, tags, and calendar holder in today's mail.
Such small little charts -- ha! Don't let this size fool you! These little things are 38 x 74 (2812 stitches per tag). Do I dare tell you how many stitches that is for the entire project?? Or should I let you do the math yourself?? Okay, I'll wait a few minutes while you break out the calculator.
Singing the Jeopardy song while I wait for you to come back.
And the answer to the question of the day is... What is 134,976 stitches?
Yep, that crashing sound was my jaw falling to the floor. I had considered asking if each little tag should be considered a finish or should I wait and call each chart pack a finish or wait until the whole damn thing was done and call it one large finish.
Just to see what a normal small piece stitched out to be I went to 123 and pulled up L*K's Liberty. That pattern is 52 x 53 or 2756 stitches and it's not solid stitching. Hmm...
And here's the thing...I'm now committed to doing this project. Can you imagine DH finding out I chickened out after I bought 7 months of patterns???? Oh good golly!
Well, my mind has shut down and I need to go get groceries. Maybe after hearing your pep talks to me I will be able to mentally function again.
Could someone pass a blood pressure cuff?
