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 Happy Dance with Boo

So exciting!  My first Happy Dance for the year!

I present to you, Boo by Glory Bee from JCS Halloween mag 2012.  Stitched on 32 ct overdyed cocoa linen using my own choice of Weeks threads (because I didn't have the requisite Gentle Arts Sampler threads and my LNS is shut for Xmas/New Year).

What do you think?






Have a great day everyone,

hugs,

I used to think that I could stitch a pattern only with the recommended threads but meanwhile I go through my thread stash and stitch with what I think matches best with the picture.
You were doing great choosing your threads. It's a cute little finish!
