I haven't been making a ton of progress with Quaker Casket because I haven't been stitching much. But what I have completed I love. I'm very happy with the color now - at first I was worried it would be too light. Now I think it's just right. :-) My goal is of course to have all the stitching completed by the time my casket comes. I'm figuring that will be sometime in early November. I should make it with plenty of time to spare.
