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.

UFO.......

.... I decided to go to the basket where I have a stash of UFOs. At random I pulled this one out:



Imagine my surprise to find that I had finished just over half of it already!  Now, the question I asked myself is "Why did I put it away?"


hugs,

P.S. I am going to check out that stash basket again tonight - I wonder what other treasures I will find?

Hi Kaye: I've been following your blog for some time now and always like to see what you are working on currently. I was so excited to see the DMC design you pulled from your stash. I absolutely love, love, love anything with cherries and wonder if you would consider making a copy of this chart and sending it to me? I will gladly pay you for it. Please let me know. Happy Holidays. Connie (ckm1944@gmail.com)

You'll get this one finished in no time Kaye!

Melody said...

This is really delightful. I'd want to finish it too.

Connie Moser said...

Hi Kaye: I don't have a blog, I'm just a fellow stitcher who follows a lot of stitchery blogs and greatly admires the many designs that you all do. I'm 70 years old, partially disabled, but still able to do cross stitch and some crochet. I also love to read and have multiple pets (cats, dogs and birds). I'll wait to hear from you. Connie Moser

Oh, you are like me, lol. From time to time I pull out one of my oldest UFOs and turnj it into a WIP. Just for a while. Your choice was good, it's a beautiful piece.
I hope you'll show us some of the other projects that you are hiding in your UFO box.

Narelle said...

Very pretty!
If we could answer that question there'd be no more UFO's :o)
