It really is amazing how long these projects take to complete, isn't it? But I'm glad, because with Mirabilia's, which I loved to do, I could bang them off in 2-4 months, and it was just getting too expensive. The upside of that was I could do whichever caught my eye. But with HaED's, I have to choose carefully, because it will be a multi-year commitment, and I don't want to get stuck in the middle of one that I fall out of love with. I'm stubborn, and would finish it anyway, but it would be arduous and not a labour of love.
Well, the sooner I can get this posted, the sooner I can start my final row of Adrift. So ta ta for now and I will see you in a couple of weeks.

We have a row finish! The next row and a partial row is all that is left to do. 86% complete. Next page I'm hoping to hit 90. The light is now at the end of a long, dark tunnel.
The stitching for the entire row is going to be fast, because there is so much of dark ocean, which is only about 3-4 colours. Just a tiny bit of tail remains. I'm so looking forward to having her done. I was going to just stitch her until complete, but I must admit, all of those dark colours leaves me needing to stitch some light colours, so back to Snow I go. It's just a partial page, so it shouldn't take too long.
When I'm done with Adrift, I promise to lay her out under proper lighting in order to get a good photo.
Hopefully I will have an update of snow in a week or two.
