Some Heritage Sampler progress

I know Martina of Chatelaine designed this piece to be a sort of Mother's tree listing your female ancestors. I already have Mother's Tree in progress for that - so I'm using it as a Family sampler instead. So that is my husband's name there. The next line of text will be "wed on January 28, 1995 to" and then my maiden name on the next line. Then a line will say, "Their children" and then Alex and Katie's full names and birthdates on the lines after that. I have a verse I might put in the remaining lines, provided I get that far before the grandchildren are born! :) I'm thinking of doing the verse in backstitch, so that I can easily frog in about 10-15yrs when the grandkids do come and I can then add their names too...

It is a LOT of over one lettering, so I'm trying to make as much progress as I can while I still have my eyes!
