More Progress on The Caretaker

I have a total of 280 hours of stitching on this piece now and this is progress as of this morning. I have almost 5 pages done. Right now I plan to stitch on it another week to 10 days before laying it down to do another Endangered animal piece.

Our weather has been up and down these last few weeks. It may be nice one day and the next a winter storm blows in. The snow is beautfiul to look at as long as you are on inside looking out. I walked my parents dog the other day and she sort of galloped like a horse through the snow yet looked like a little Princes. The snow is actually deeper than what she is tall, but she seems to like to prance through the snow when it's nice out. When it's nasty, no, she does what she has to and is right back inside again.

Last night was our first meeting of the Evangelism Board at church. And oh boy, we have a lot of work to do, but it's going to be fun and exciting to see God at work. Pastor is in charge of it this year, and he sort of remapped the role of the Evangelism Board to include Outreach as well as Missions instead of just Missions. I'm excited to see what will happen in future. I was elected Secretary so I took good notes I hope.

I love my new bed. I've had very little trouble getting use to it. I sleep so much better on it. It also is much easier to make in the morning as it is higher up and makes my room look so much better!

Thank you for reading my blog and for your comments. I really appreciate them. Well until next time Happy Stitching.

You are making great progress on Caretaker.

Glad the new bed is giving you good nights sleep. We recently got a new bed also and I can't believe the difference it makes to my sleep.

Great progress on The Caretaker, I know what satisfaction there must be seeing such a large project develop. Keep up the good work, and hope you are keeping warm!

Nice progress. With this style design, being such a dense stitch, having pictures to see your progress is especially rewarding (at least I know it is for me). Glad that your new bed is working out so well, it is amazing how much better you can feel after a good nights sleep.
