Okay, that's it, not going to try it now! I looked at that the other day (may have been you that mentioned that you wanted to attempt it or were starting it?) and thought how beautiful it was. It takes me too many years to get a regular chart done, let alone 252 pages! It will be a stunning piece when you are finished.

That's going to be beautiful; you've made a grand start. :) The blends look awesome on 18 ct.

I am intimidated with the 16 page piece I am doing. You go girl, 252 just scares the tar out of me. I can't wait to watch it grow. :dance:

:applesauce: :applesauce: Beautiful Start!!! 256 pages whether large or small sized is an awesome amount. I agree with Rose that we are likely to see a finish since I'm sure this is moving along at Vanessa speed with the usual beautiful stitching. So looking forward to your updates!

It looks amazing! If there's anyone that can get this done quickly (well, quickly in terms of massive BAPs :) ), it's you!

I can't wait to see this one come to life! You are a fast stitcher though. I would be too overwhelmed to even start.

I just realized that 246 pages is about half the size of a ream of paper (here in the states). I'm not sure if it would be easier to deal with that size in a pdf format with only printing pages as I needed them or in a hard copy that I could see slowly being used up. Just wondering which version do you have? Do you get the whole kit when doing your Golden Kites or kit them yourself? Just curious.

Great start, I very much look forward to seeing it grow.

Wow. You've got a good start, but the sheer size of the chart makes my head hurt.

I have the whole kit for this one. So yes there are a lot of pages but I just get a few out at a time. I plan on sticking with this one until the end and not rotating. I do like a challenge!! :D :D :D
