I really don't like this project

But I have to do it or I don't get payed
I was asked by the owner of my local shop if I'd finish this bellpull off for a customer of her's who had started it done maybe 30 stitches on it before deciding it was to hard for her. 
I'm really not enjoying it but at least I don't hate it like I did the Lancaster Bomber I did for my Mum several years ago.

So I'm hoping that by posting it on here I'll get motivated to get it finished asap so I can work on something else

I think your LNS's customer is going to love it when it's finished! And she'll have you to thank for it!! Keep up the beautiful work...

You are doing a good thing for someone. Just think the quicker it is done then the quicker you can get to one of your pieces.

It's looking good - the customer will be pleased. You should chose a fab fab project for yourself ready for when it's finished - you'll beenkeen to do that then and maybe finish this quicker

It is looking lovely. Have a project in mind for when you have finished it will spur you on.

Just think the quicker it is done then the quicker you can moving for other project.

Looks to me like you have done a lot more than thirty stitches, so you did much better than the original stitcher.
I find it helps to make myself a promise when I'm working on something I'm unhappy with. So a finish means a new chart or kit.

It's looking good but I understand that feeling of having to work on something you don't want to - esp when there are other projects in the bag! x

Oo Shudders reminds me that I have to finish Isle of sark for the MIL, I really detest working on it!!

Very pretty. Keep going and you will have it done in no time.

Much much prettier than a Lancaster bomber.

I know that I've committed to something just to get it done in the past. About how much did she complete?
