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.

An "E" Giveaway....

... I was going through my stash the other day and I found this design:



I bought this last year to stitch for my mother's birthday this year but sadly she passed away before I could even start it.

Now, I feel too sad to stitch it and I have no other "E" people to stitch it for.

So, I would like it to go to a Happy Home.

Is anyone interested?  Just comment on this post or email me at kayedep@gmail.com and let me know.

I will keep this open for a week - so next Thursday morning (29th May) I will pick a winner.

You do not have to be a follower or have a blog - just comment/email and have a snail mail address, of course.

I am happy to post anywhere in the world.

hugs,

Gosh this is stunningly beautiful... very sad that you never got the chance to stitch it.. but very lovely of you to pass onto some one else so they have the pleasure to stitch it for a loved one.
I am in the same position as you really.. I too have no one with the letter E I could stitch for.
Please do not enter me for the draw I just wanted to make a comment.
Sending smiles you way :)

Such a shame that your Mum won't get to see this stitched for her but I'm sure she would appreciate what you are doing with the chart.
I would stitch it for my friend's daughter Emily. All four of my friend's children have an ASD and the older girl always said she wanted to be a mermaid when she grew up. The teachers laughed but this girl now swims for her country in the youth team. I wanted to stich her the K mermaid (when it gets released) so I would stitch this one for Emily so she doesn't feel left out. I don't think the boys are bothered...

I am so sorry about your mum. My mum’s name also begins with an E (Eileen) and I would love to stitch this for her. xxx

Big hugs x

I thoroughly understand. I was working on a needlepoint piece while my mother was struggling with her stroke and health issues. I don't know if I'll ever complete it. Please don't count me in.
Fondly,
Kim

Well, my name is Erin and my daughter's middle name is Elizabeth...and I already have Nora's "M" for my daughter as well. But I can't promise I'll get to stitching this right away, so if you are looking to see it stitched ASAP, it is fine to leave me out! It is lovely, though. So sorry about your mum's passing.

(oops, the above comment - and this one, probably - are linked to my secondary Google account. My other account is tied to my blog, Fairy Tales & French Knots.)

How generous of you Kaye. Unfortuntely, I have no E's in my life so I will pass on the drawing.

Vickie said...

No need to count me in Kaye. I just wanted to give you a HUG.

Bev C said...

Hello Kaye,

Are you sure you don;t want to stitch it in her memory?
Little baby Emily has arrived and it would be so lovely to stitch it for her.

Have a lovely day.
Bev.

I am so very sorry for your loss. x My name is Elaine so would love to stitch your chart, please include me in the draw.

Sandie said...

Sorry that you didn't get to stitch it for your mum. My daughter's name is Erika - so I'd love to stitch it for her as she only ever gets named things when we go to Germany/Austria as her name is spelt that way!

Michelle Ridgway said...

Oh so sorry you didn't get to stitch it for your Mum. I have a dear little 1 year old granddaughter Erin who I would love to stitch it for. What a lovely and generous thing to do Kaye xx
