I'm so glad it's not just me ! It has been getting looser as I've been working on it, mostly the corner I keep hitting with my wrist though.
So far I've put about 6 hours into it....I marked every 10 stitches so I could see where I'm going as I know I'm out of practise. The red ones are the centre marks and I've only fully done the sections for page one. I just really wanted to get started.
So here it is, 6 hours in.
I'm getting a bit quicker as I go on with it, and I'm glad my stitches are neat xD
