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.

Some Finished Finishes....

"Start spreading the news...."  I actually have some FINISHED FINISHES!

Yes, three of my Spring Rabbits have been turned into sweet little cushions (the fourth is staying flat to be slipped into my next letter to my penpal).

Do you wanna see? Do you? Do you?

Yes, of course, you do.





Now Finishing is not my thing, so to speak.  I never quite know how to do it right and when it comes down to it I would rather stitch and stitch!

But... I am really pleased with these little bunnies - so much so that I am going to stitch some more!  I have found two more new colourways from Cottage Garden Threads to try on some really cool overdyed greyish fabbie plus I am thinking - Christmas Rabbits?????


All three of these bunnies are going travelling around the world - Updated: one to Cath of Bits and Bobs Sorry, Cath, got my winners mixed up, the Bunny is going to

MARSHA

and then one is going  to one of my (very outstanding) PIF recipients and the last one to a yet to be named RAKer from my the RAK blog.

So, I will have to stitch some more  - just for me!

Have a good day, everyone,

hugs,

P.S. It is our wedding anniversary today - 32 years - imagine that!

How pitiful is that!!??

The bunnies looking really good. Congratulations both on finishing them and on the wedding anniversary. Hope you'll do some for yourself ... would be a pity to create so many cuties and not to keep at least one.

They are lovely, all three of them. It's always amazing what a beautiful piece of lace or ribbon can do to a finished piece.
