First page done on my 3rd row

Well, I won't even bother apologizing for the late updates, I think that it's something you all with have to come to terms with from now on. It's amazing what a change MSN makes in our lives. With it, we were constantly pushing each other to HAED faster, update the blog on time, and all that. Now, it looks like we're averaging 5 days late and more to update our blogs!

It did give me time to finish up my page, though. It's the first page of my 3rd row! It sounds like a lot, but it'll probably bring me back down to earth if I were to check how many rows I actually have in the design. Anyway, here's where I'm at.

I should really blog a bit more about what else I've been up to, but it's a lazy Friday afternoon, after a big lunch. My company usually goes for more fancy / faraway lunches on Fridays as we have a long lunch hour. I had yummy Indian rice with fried chicken and curries plus a coffee laced with fresh cow's milk. And the combination of it all plus the quietness makes me not want to do work, which is the reason the blog's being updated now. :D

So, farewell till next time...whenever that will be!

Competition Rules

Competition Begins: 1st May 2008
Competition Ends: Chinese New Year 2013

Goal: Complete a HAED design by the time allotted.

Designs chosen are to be of approximately the same sizes. Contestants are free to change their design half way, however it must also be of the similar size to the original design chosen.

Each month, each contestant will deposit USD$20 into a separate bank account.

Every fortnight, each contestant has to update this blog with updated progress pictures.

Prize Money:

If only one contestant completes her design by the deadline, she gets the total amount of money saved by both contestants.

If neither designs are complete, the entire sum of money is to be donated to a charity that is agreed upon by both contestants.

If both complete it on time, the money is divided in the following manner:

60% of the total goes to the contestant who completes* her design first within the deadline.

40% of the total goes to the contestant who completes* her design last within the deadline.

* For EeL, completion means full completion. For Sae, completion for the 60% winner total is 210,400 stitches, with the remainder stitches to be completed by the deadline.
