|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.
