The Caretaker


Thank you for all your comments to Winter Silhouette!

Now I'm back to stitching my forever project, The Caretaker. I figure it'll be finished sometime between 2010 and 2020! I finished my 5th page on it so that conts as 1 more piece towards the 25 challenge, my 6th page is almost done so that will count as the 34d. I read somewhere where someone was counting each page of a huge project as a project toward their goal, and I thought good idea. Especially since there is more on 1 page then there is to a lot of projects.

I am real happy with this piece and do enjoy working on it. I can't wait to get more of the elk done and really start having it look like it's coming together. I may start that page next.

Oh I almost forgot. I gave 3pieces to a friend of mine to finish off. Two were made into pillows and the 3rd (Lizzie Kate Flip It's) was made into a Bell Pull. I already gave the Bell Pull to a friend going through radiation treatments for cancer. I liked how the two turned off she has done, the 3 rd one I'll get Sunday. The pillow really turned out nice. I think I will have the two pillows as an exchange piece. I've been shy about joining exchanges because I'm no good in finishing things. Mary said she'd finish things off for me when I wanted. I'll try not to over work her.

Well, until next time happy stitching!

Barb, I doubt if I could ever finish a big project like that. Must be amazing to work on!

Looks like a huge project. I am a sucker for those. I'm always working on something huge. (I usually whine about it, though LOL)I'm drawn to them because of the detail I think.

Caretaker is so pretty, but what a huge undertaking. I think counting each page as a finish is totally reasonable. The amount of stitching in one page is more than in many designs, you could almost count a page as two finishes based on that. Your pillow is so pretty, and congrats on your finish of Winter Silhouette, it turned out gorgeous.
