A friend was recently giving me a hard time because of how long a certain project was taking me. I had started it on February 25, and the last stitch was completed on August 3. Now, obviously, there were a lot of other projects that were done during that time, but the fact remains that it sat in my 'in-process' stack for several months. (That's not too bad considering the blanket that was 'back-burnered' for 4 years.)
After reading this story, I don't feel so bad anymore.
