What’s on your wall? Penny Berens, Granville Ferry, Nova Scotia

Writing a journal has never been part of my daily routine, so it was quite a surprise when two years ago I decided to start a stitched journal.
The plan was to stitch a row every day just recording the passing of time.

But it wasn’t long before I felt the need to record daily events such as the day we had my Handy Hubby’s golfing buddies and their wives round for dinner

or the day in February the redpolls returned.

After two years of daily stitching I have amassed quite a few yards of hand stitched daily life!  Recently I have been wondering if this should be my last year; but I would miss it, so it will probably continue. 

My purpose in starting was to make my art more personal and in that I have succeeded for it is certainly well entrenched in my daily routine and in my psyche.
