Or do you even keep track (I know some peole who count the minutes that they stitch; me, I'm lucky if I remember the day I started!).

What is the longest (not counting UFOs) that it has taken you to complete a project? Was that because it was a BAP (AKA Big Assed Project!) or did you just find it hard to keep working on it?

What is the least time it has taken you to complete a project?

I think I am a pretty slow stitcher but it might be because I have so many things going on! I did a Chalice cover with couched gold and silver threads in one weekend but I almost never got out of my chair! I did an 8 1/2 square needlepoint last summer than took me 2 1/2 weeks but once again I had a huge deadline and so I really put my nose to the grind. I need to get my GCC finished so that I can start the komono and that needs to happen real soon! So

It actually does vary with the medium --- I can get some bead journal things out in two or three days (once I decide on the pattern, the supplies, etc.), some needlepoint smalls in an evening; and some medium sized cross-stitch in two or three days. And if I have the sewing machine warmed up and running, properly threaded (still an issue with me) and the fabric selected, I can whip out a finished pillow or ornament in less than an hour... Quilting, on the other hand... that's a struggle; most of my attempts at quilting become long-standing UFOs!!!
