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.

A Naughty kitty cat!


Now, much as I love Furio he can be a naughty kitty cat.  Here he is sleeping peacefully on my knee whilst  I do some blogging and stitching. 


A few minutes later I got up to make a cup of tea and I dropped my skein of Cottage Garden Thread on the floor.  One minute later I found it looking like this:




Furio thought it was for him to play with!  It should look nice and neat like this one:  


Who could have thought that this sweet little kitty cat could be such a devil??


 The thread which Furio messed up I am using to make a special gift for someone (can't say who, it is a secret!).  I am stitching "here lie my needles" using hand-dyed Cottage Garden Threads  in Raisin.  The colour shading moves from a salmony-pink to a grey-purple. It is being stitched on the same dusky pink fabric which I stitched my Giveaway piece on.  I have also changed the year from 1692 to 2012.  I would love some input on how you all think this looks.  Do you think the shading works?


Have a nice day everyone.

hugs,

Sorry cant help but laugh! Naughty boy but so darn cute! Of course he couldn't do that too a DMC skein could he? He has to choose the nice soft more expensive one ;0). I like the shading; lovely colours ;0)

Cats will do as they please...even if it doesn't please us...one time my boys left a nerf ball out and during the school day the cats had a wonderful time...the ball was shredded over the entire house!! Now its funny...not back then!! Have a great evening!!

Cats and threads: not the best combination:-) your stitching looks great. I love the floss you use for it. Beautiful combination of different colors/ different shades.

Chris said...

Oh Furio! He is an opportunist! You cannot leave your floss unattended.
Binx is the same way.

Furio certainly doesn't miss an opportunity! He & Sophie would be real partners in crime : ) I think the floss looks lovely! I've never heard of Cottage Garden floss. Uh-oh!

ha ha. Gotta love those rotten little cats!

Bea said...

The shading is lovely. Have to smile at Furio - paws and floss NOT a good combination. I know - I have 2 fur brats.

Furio just thought he was helping his muma, what a sweetie he is. I have ended up with many a piece of floss or wool get to where I was stitching or knitting only to find it is soaking wet from Hun trying to eat it as it goes past him. I think the variegated threads look wonderful & love that comblination of colours. Tracee xx

Kitties are just SOOO naughty!!! One time I found a skien of floss in my basement and I can assure you I DON'T stitch down there!

Anne said...

Ooooh! That Furio! Sorry but I had to laugh out loud!! They are such little monkeys aren't they?! What a pretty colour you are using! I think the shading is perfect!

Hugs
