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.

I am so, so, so bad....

... because I have been doing some more Empire Building. Now, no one is hurt by this as it is my Stash Empire Building!

The other week I received this parcel from France:           (I was feeling a bit guilty about all my Stash Empire Building lately so I am only now coming clean! lol!)



















Oh, how I love to increase my Empire!

hugs,

Wow! What great new stash--no need to feel guilty... You deserve it after all of your hard work, Kaye :)

Kathy Ellen said...

Oh Kaye....I absolutely love every one of your new 'Empire Building' stash! Every one of the 'Jardin Prive' designs are just so uniquely wonderful. However will you decide which one to stitch first? 'My Lady's Quaker' really caught my eye, as I love the Quaker designs so much. Must be my Quaker ancestry... (on my Mother's side, we are direct descendents of William Penn.) Hmmmm. I think that I may just have to order that wonderful design too.

Blessings & Hugs!

You are so bad! But then I am no better. Bought enough stash to make my own tower from ebay. 'I offer combined postage' always gets me.

Linda said...

Naughty girl... But oh what a way to be naughty!!
I think I recognise a couple of those rather cute charts as they are now sitting in my craft room waiting to be stitched... I have decided to start on Autumn... I think or maybe Winter...
Thank you for sharing your new stash with me :)

Christine M said...

Oh, you are funny Kaye. That certainly is quite a haul!

Anne said...

Lol! I love your new stash from France. I've been debating ordering some Jardin Prive charts too for awhile now. Seeing yours is making me contemplate. Love the choices you made! Happy stitching!

Hugs

Shirlee said...

Oh my! What a wonderful package of wonderful stash additions! You will be busy!

Noela said...

It is hard to stop adding to our stash isn't it? Hugs.....

Barb said...

Wonderful stash!! I love the designs by Jardin Prive. I stitched the Halloween one last year and it is one of my favorites. This year I plan to do the Christmas one.

sharine said...

Now we know who to raid first lol!

Brigitte said...

Oh Kay, I really love it when you show pictures of your stash Empire Building. You might ask why - well, it's always wonderful to see new stash, even when it's not my own, lol. But this time I see a lot of patterns that are in my stash, too. I love all these French designers and whenever I visit "my" French cross stitch shop some of their new charts go home with me. Great shopping! And don't feel guilty - we stitchers have to add some new things to our stash from time to time, lol.

Christine said...

That is an impressive stash haul!

Denise SA said...

O my what beautiful stash hope the empire building goes well

SoCal Debbie said...

Oh look at that big packet from France just stuffed with charts for Kaye! The kitty in the cage is adorable!
