About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Numbers Afghan - a WIP

Hi everyone,

I have finally managed to take a few more photos. so I am ready for another post.  Below you will find a series of photos of my Numbers Afghan.  This is a Lucie Heaton design which I found in a cross stitch magazine.  I am making this for the baby of a dear friend at work.  I started it  whilst Misal was pregnant and now the baby, Zara, is one!  I am getting there, though.  One reason for my slowness (not counting the fact that I have several projects on the go), is that after I chose this project and had bought the afghan fabric and all of the threads, I discovered that it is petit point and is stitched over one thread!  This, of course, makes it a much longer term project.

I hope that you like it, here we go, lots of pics to follow:
This is a view of part of the Afghan, showing some of the numbers, it is just too big for me to take a picture of the whole thing.  Here are the numbers which I have completed:

As you can see, it is a big project but one that I am really enjoying working on.
Wish me luck with it.

Bye for now, Kaye xoxox
