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.

FNWF for June

How did you all go last night with Friday Night with Friends?

I worked on this Snowflake tree, which is a freebie from Stickeule (I will update this post with a link when I get to my computer (using Blogger App on my iPhone here atm).  UPDATED:  this is the link to Renate's Winter Freebies.  They are all gorgeous and well worth checking out.

Here is where I was up to before last night's stitching session.


... And this is after a full evening's stitching:


The fabbie is a 32 ct, sea green overdue (from The Crafty Kitten, I think) and I am using DMC B5200 for the snowflakes and CC La Tierra for the tree.

I am very happy with the delicate tracery of the snowflakes.

Can't wait to see what everyone else worked on last night. 

Hugs, Kaye

P.S. If you would like to own the "Liberty Lane" pattern,  please comment on this post here, you have until Friday, 13th to join in the fun.
