Stitching Sick

I've been sick for the past 2 weeks with tonsillitis. It really sucks! My throat hurts so bad constantly and I've had not much energy to do anything. But being stuck at home, I've managed to chip away on my HAED to keep up with my quota. If I had my full energy, I probably could have done 2 or more times my quota and not feel so tired. :p

I've finally finished my annoying page of single stitches. :D Right now, I'm tackling 3 pages all at the same time. One is a small side page to finish my second row of pages. Another is on the 3rd row and the other page is on the 4th row. I get paranoid sometimes that I get mixed up between the 2 full pages but they do look fairly different so no mistakes so far.

Here's my progress pic:

All 3 pages look quite annoying but its quite nice to pick and choose clumps on all 3 pages to do here and there.

I just had a horrible thought in my head; by next May or around there, I need to have about half the cloth finished!

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.
