A New Quota For Me :(

As I have been slacking off very badly this year, I realised that I probably would have to push my daily quota up. So last week, I did some rough calculations of how much I'd done and the answer is....not very much at all! :'( To be more precise, I'm at about 54300 stitches. Almost 20k behind Sae!!! *Crawls into hole in despair*

Well so, doing some more maths, it looks like I will need to do a daily quota of 136 stitches. Rounding it way up, I'm going to attempt to do 1000 stitches a week. And as long as I do more than 940 stitches, I should be on track to finish by my 30th birthday (our competition finished Chinese New Year after that).

So while the maths isn't so dire just yet, just knowing how way ahead Sae is, is still so very disheartening!

Ah well, it was my own fault for being so lazy so I'll just have to suck it up and Do My Best!

Here's my pic so far, I thought I'd take a overview pic too, just like Sae's:

This week I did not quite get to my desired 1000k, I got up to 961. Which is not too bad for 4 stitching sessions if I may say so myself!

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.
