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.

FNSI update

I stitched some more on my Lavender Fairy for my JE RR for FNSI.

Now, she looks like Medusa rather than a Noh mask or maybe a Noh mask with Medusa hair?  I will be glad when I finish her hair - getting rather tired of all the brown - lol!



Hopefully she will beautiful once she is done!

IHSW this weekend, too  - I am planning to work some more on Lavender Fairy AKA Medusa and FINISH my "Friend" stitch plus some probably some other bits and pieces of stitching  - whatever takes my fancy.    How about your IHSW plans?

hugs,

Hi Kaye, she will be beautiful when she is all done, but yes heads & hair can look weird when they are in progress of being stitched...
