Cross-stitch takes a LONG time

I started a cross-stitched family tree for the new edition to the family who was born last November.  I started it during the school summer vacation last year.  I have quite a bit finished, but am anticipating being able to do more in a couple of weeks when school is out again this year.  It's taking SO long that I've asked a friend to finish it in the case of my early demise!  It's taking a LONG time. The friend laughed, but promised to carry through if I'm hit by a truck or something.  I hadn't done any needlework for DECADES.  I don't remember previous efforts taking this much time, but almost forty years probably makes me a wee bit slower too!
