IHSW update

Hello lovely bloggers,

I would like to welcome all my new followers.  I really love reading all of your comments and checking out your blogs, as well.  The online cross-stitching community is an awesome one.

Well, I can tell you - one upside of having a cold and not being able to do much all weekend is that I got lots of stitching done for IHSW. See my great progress on Isabella's Garden:

BEFORE IHSW

AS I WENT TO BED LAST NIGHT, TIRED BUT SATISFIED AFTER IHSW
Off to do some more stitching, whilst DH and I watch Underbelly:Razor - an Aussie TV programme all about the 1920/1930s razor gang wars in Darlinghurst, Sydney.  The rival gangs fought so viciously with cut throat razors that Darlinghurst became known as Razorhurst for a time.  The interesting thing is that the two gang leaders were women  - Kate Leigh who was a sly grog runner and Tilly Devine, who was referred to as a 'chaperone of magdalenes'.  Now, isn't that a lovely turn of phrase to describe a brothel madam?

That's all for me now,

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Wow.... I'd wish you more "under the weatherness" if being sick doesn't feel so yucky. ;) She looks great, Kaye!! :D
