|One year of doing a panel a month for the stitch along - I have a total of 15 casket panels done for two caskets. What an|
accomplishment and it really wasn't 'that hard' if you think about it in these units
Hopefully this is inspiring for all of you wanting to do a New Year's resolution and get started on your casket I only have seven panels left for the double casket and five for the Harmony casket, so I will easily finish these two caskets in the 2-year window that I gave myself. I am aiming on having the Harmony one done earlier (hopefully!) so we can start the full on project class for a new group of people. Tomorrow I start a new panel of it.
The only challenge I have had is the panels that were listed as being done over two months for you - like the large sides of the tent stitch piece. In those cases instead of doing them over two months, I had to do them in one month so the entire piece could be graphed. That's a bit more challenging.
One of the things I have learned during this, in some ways the tent stitch pieces which are 'easier' technique wise are time-wise harder to do. Satin stitch or couching purls is certainly faster and you make more progress. Even though I only have a week left of January, I know I could complete a stump work frieze in that time if I was working on it part of every day. That was counter-intuative and nice to learn doing both side by side.
