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.

IHSW update

A most productive weekend was had by me, myself and I this weekend.  I caught up with friends, had lunch with DS1 (who moved out of home just before we left for the U.S.), did lots of baking and lots of stitching.  I would have to say that my IHSW was a great success!  How was yours?

Here is my stitching progress on Cinderella:
BEFORE IHSW

PROGRESS AFTER IHSW

CLOSE UP OF MOST RECENT PROGRESS
 I also had another baking day on Sunday:
Beef Bourguignon

Finger Buns
 Then, Sunday evening, as I settled down to work on my Sunday SAL with Linda and Debbie, I realised that I didn't know where I had oh so carefully put my 12 Days of Santas!!!!  (Sorry Linda an Debbie) So, as I had mentally moved away from Cindy for the evening - I put in a few stitches on Henry VIII and his six wives

I hope that everyone else's IHSW was as productive as mine,

Have a great week everyone,

hugs,

Oh Kaye, you are too funny! You MISPLACED Santa's 12 Days of Christmas?! Good luck finding him by next Sunday! Your Cinderella and Henry are looking great.

Linda said...

Great progress on Cinderella and Henry. Sounds kinda suspicious to me that you lost your Santas. I'm still laughing. Good luck finding them.

Cindy is progressing well. Have the Santas turned up? Who designed your Henry? x

Kaisievic said...

@ Jan, thank you - no, still no sign of Santa and the Henry is a DMC design.

hugs, Kaye xoxox
