>How Many Stitches?

Sometimes I stop to look at my beadwork and wonder how many stitches I have already completed. I also wonder how many yards of Nymo thread I have already used. And, how many seed beads! It looks like a lot! :o

  1. >Mind-boggling to even contemplate, isnt' it? I admit I'm always slightly annoyed when people ask me how long it took me to make something, or other "quantity" questions. Probably because I have a reflex to be defensive, thinking others are judging me on how much time I'm "wasting." Labors of love and/or art can't be measured that way. I love that you have zillions of stitches! This piece is going to be even more amazing than the White House.
