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.

Baboushka Happy Dance

Hello lovely bloggers,

Well, I have finally had a finish for 2011!  Now, the reason that I don't finish much is that I am absolutely enamoured of big projects and that I also love to start projects and lastly, that I jump from project to project as my fancy takes me.  But anyway, Baboushka absolutely enchanted me and she turned out to be a quick finish.  So, here she is:


Sorry, the photo is a little fuzzy and for some reasons the colour is a little washed out (a photographer I am not!)
I am off to the framers at lunchtime to have her framed and I already have chosen a spot on the wall for her.

Now, I loved stitching Baboushka so much that I thought that I would like to pass the pattern on plus there is still quite a bit of thread left.  
If you would like me to pass the pattern on to you (I will post anywhere) just let me know by saying if you are interested on this post.  If I get a lot of takers I will pull a name out a hat or bowl as the case maybe.  If enough stitchers are interested maybe she could become a travelling pattern.

Have a lovely day, everyone,

Bye for now, Kaye xoxox

P.S. I have just got back from Lazy Daisy and I have chosen the most gorgeous dark green suede matting with a burgundy matte underneath and a lovely gilt frame - she is going to be beautiful.  I will get her back in two weeks and will post a picture of her then.

P.P.S.  and I bought another design (sigh!).  When I have taken a photo of the pattern I will post about it.

Thanks, Bec. Yes, I am very pleased with her and I think her soft colours are what made her such a pleasure to stitch.
