Olympic Crafting--Closing Ceremonies

Here is where I ended up by the end of Closing Ceremonies on Sunday:

In the Knitting Olympics there is only one goal--start/finish during the Olympic Games. I admit that this is what I had wanted to do with this project BUT life intervened.

I had obstacles to overcome:
**Rage was sick for the first week of the Olympics--as in home from school requiring Mommy's attention sick.
**My birthday took out a day
**I actually watched a lot of the Olympics and, although I was stitching during all of it, I was distracted by watching instead of counting especially during all of the hockey events.
**I had a few visits to the frog pond when I was distracted by said hockey events.
**By week two I was fighting off aforementioned illness that has taken down everyone else in this house.

I decided after the first week that I would strive for one of the following:
All 9 pages of the chart=GOLD
6 of 9 pages=SILVER
3 of 9 pages=Bronze

I am proud to say that I made it to the BRONZE and I think that is something for a cross stitch project that was worked on only when the Olympics where on in this house :)
