August 8th Update

Hi stitchers!

Apologising again for the lack of posting, sorry guys. I've become a little overwhelmed with the size of the project, not the physical size, but the stitch count & the number of hours I need to put in to get it finished.
I've been trying to figure out how to keep myself motivated to keep working on her, I find i'm often like this during the first few pages of a large project, once i'm halfway done the needles are wizzing, but i'm really dragging my heels at the moment.

I like working with numbers & setting goals (I was a tax accountant pre-children) so will find a way of playing with the figures. Maybe work out the total stitch count of the project, number done so far, number per page when I start a new one, maybe set myself a set number of stitches per day?? That way I will have smaller goals to focus on, instead of feeling a little lost when I think of how far I still have to go?

Here is a picture as she looks today, about half of the second page done:

Can you see the fist bit of ravens wing??
The rest of this page contains approx 4500 stitches, i'm going to aim for 1000 stitches per day, so next update with second page completed should be on Thursday. I'll try to play with the figures before then, so I have some proper totals & goals to aim for
