Doing the math

My progress on my epic cross stitch journey.

Still on the first page with 17 grid squares done.
That's 1,700 stitches.
That's approximately 3% of the project done.
I have slightly less than 61,150 stitches left to go.
I'm not taking into account those scattered stitches already competed
on two grid squares.
1700 stitches completed in 7 days.
That's average of 243 stitches a day.
At this rate the epic will be completed in 259 days.

Hey! That's less than a year!!

Of course, I know me.
There will be those days that something else will distract me.
Something that will make me go: "Squirrel!"
(reference is to Dug from the movie "Up" - a favorite of mine)

Edited to add ... the finished project will look somewhat like this:

I feel the same way. I like to knit and recently decided to create more hats and less sweaters.
