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.

Another Happy Dance.... or TWO!

I have had another Happy Dance - yay! Last week I finished my second round JE RR stitching.

This one is Snowdrop Fairy, I am very pleased with how she turned out.





Here are the other two fairies on the RR piece - Lavender and Lily, can I please stress that these two ARE NOT MY WORK THEY ARE THE GORGEOUS STITCHING OF TWO OTHER TALENTED LADIES (I hope that they don't mind me showing it off).


The RR piece so far:

Also, over the weekend I finished this sweet stitch from Merrily Beams called Trifles (I saw it finished on Carol's blog the other day and I remembered I had the pattern in my stash). I stitched it for my desk buddy at work for her birthday.




Trifles by Merrily Beams
unknown ecru 28 ct evenweave
Threads - my own choice of Cottage Garden Threads

I like this design so much that I plan to stitch it at least once or twice more as gifts for friends, it is a very sweet and easy stitch, especially on the gorgeous evenweave fabric which Linda sent me recently. (Thanks so much again, dear Linda).


hugs,
