This is my oldest son, d-i-l, and granddaughter.

I'm waiting for the winter storm to hit and hope we don't get hit too hard. I'm supposed to scrap with the gang tomorrow but it will depend on how much snow we get and when it stops. I got rid of almost half my scrap stash and it has been liberating. I'm able to find and know what I have now. I'm actually using all those monthly kits I've received over the years. I still have some stuff to get put away but my scraproom is greatly improved. Except for one monthly kit that I still receive from My Creative Scrapbook, I haven't been scrapbook shopping since right after Thanksgiving when I bought a Christmas paper pack and the Basic Gray calendar kit at M's.

I finally finished my granddaughter's birth sampler. It is Longdog's Bienvenue. I stitched it with silk fibers from Vicki Clayton on 28 ct. fabric called porcelin from Silkweaver. Now I need to get it laced and to the framers. I'm also having Keith's birth sampler re-framed to match Taylor's.

My next project is one I've had the chart for since 2004. It is the French Alphabet Sampler which has the names and initials of all the members of my family incorporated into the design. It is a custom chart that I ordered through Elegant Stitch. They still take orders for it from time to time. I had to buy a yard of fabric so it is a really BAP (Big Ass Project).
