Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. Psalm 57.5, 62:5

January WIPocalypse

Since I just posted the other day, there is not much of interest to add, but apparently I am supposed to say something about myself.

I live in Calgary, Alberta, with my husband of 51 years.  We have only been here for 8 years so Calgary still does not feel like home.   We were in Edmonton for 40+ years before we moved here.   I would cheerfully move to a warmer climate in a heartbeat if it was possible.    And that will be my last comment about the weather.  

We have four grown children and nine grandchildren; the eldest is 24 and the youngest will be 5 next month.  

Besides stitching, I also read a lot and try to watch every Blue Jays baseball game between April and September (hopefully in October this year as well :) )    

I started Victoria Sampler's Heirloom Homecoming Sampler on the 1st. 
The picture is just the top part of the chart.  I started with the second row as I was not quite sure just where to begin with the top part.  So what you see is row 2 and then I started working my way up to the top.   I will work on the birdhouse next.  

I also have MLI's World Peace Angel in very slow progress.  She is on the floor stand but being pretty much ignored and if I should happen to decide on something big enough to stitch on the floor stand she will go back into the closet.   I am actually thinking that she will wind up with my younger daughter to finish when I am gone.  She is also a stitcher.   I have an Easter piece to finish as well; managed to get the centre part done before my knee surgery last spring and now it is in the closet too.   


  1. Heirloom Sampler is beautiful. I look forward to watching your progress through the year.

  2. What a gorgeous start for the new year. Good luck!

  3. What a beautiful piece! Looking forward to seeing it grow.
