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.

Train stitching.....

I have started a new small as my latest Train stitching project (ie I stitch on this on the train on the way to work).

It is a freebie from Broderie Passion and here are the original colours (as shown on the pattern):


Now, I have decided to be adventurous and play around with some of my Cottage Garden Threads, which are lovely Australian variegated hand-dyed threads.

What do you think?

Such a pretty pattern!
OH, May I ask a question?
How do you do it?
You know, the train stitching stuff...
I don't take trains but when I do, it's very fast that I wouldn't be able to even hold a needle!
Amazing!
Have a great day xx
