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.

Help please....

You may all remember that a few posts ago I announced that Debra Butler had won my Liberty Lane pattern?

Well, Debra is a no reply commenter and even though I tracked her to Google + (which I hate, by the way - just confuses me!) and became a follower she does not seem to have a blog and she has not emailed me since I announced that she won (obviously she missed the post).

I am hoping that someone knows Debra and could let her know to get in touch with me as soon as possible. Otherwise, I will have to redraw the giveaway for the pattern.

If you need some further context, the two relevant posts are here and here.

.... on a stitchy note, last night was Tudor Tuesday SAL night, so for some strange reason I decided to pick up a BAP and stitch HAED's Ophelia (one of several HAED Ophelia's I own).



Now, I have drawn a long bow here with stitching her for the Tudor Tuesday SAL - this is my reasoning:

Ophelia is a Shakespearean character (from Hamlet), Shakespeare was an Elizabethan playwright, Elizabeth I was a TUDOR monarch!

Works for me!  lol!

Now, the first pic is what I stitched when I started this piece on 13 JANUARY, 2011!!!!!!



This next pic is last night's progress: (sorry for some reason it is rotated 90 degrees to the left)


So, wish me luck with this - if I only stitch on it once every 3 and a half years, I wonder how long will it take to finish it?  lol!


I have a big presentation at work this afternoon to Senior Management - so wish me luck!

hugs,

I hope that you can get a hold of her BUT if she doesn't respond to you within a time frame of your choice, then select another person. I look forward to seeing your progress on stitching this beautiful lady. Peace to you. HUGS

Google+ confuses me too. That picture of Ophelia will be a beautiful, even if it takes a few years.

I hate google+. I've had a few people follow my blog from google* and I can't figure out how to follow them back.

My advise about your gift is set a date to be claimed by. If it is not claimed by that date, then do a redraw.

Good luck with the presentation! That chart looks very ambitious to me! You are brave to take it on so far lovely stitching.

Best of Luck for your presentation I hope it goes well for you. This is a beautiful chart and I look forward to seeing your progress. You've made a great start.

It's frustrating when someone leaves a comment has a no reply address.
Hopefully she will see your post that she won. Ophelia is beautiful.
Good luck with your stitching progress on her.
love Annette

LOL...I love your logic on that one! It's a great picture, can't wait to see it progress. :D

Mii Stitch said...

Not sure how to help with the Google +, I'm not very keen on it. Let's just hope Debra reads your post. Good luck with the presentation. I'm sure you'll be fine :) Have fun with this HAED design, it sure looks wonderful.

Margaret said...

Good luck with the presentation! I can't imagine working on HAED pieces. They are so amazing and detailed! Great progress so far!

Thoeria said...

I reckon your tudor reasoning makes perfectly reasonable sense Kaye :) HAEDs are beautiful....but soooo fiddly! Hopefully Debra will read your post and get into contact....I haven't figured out Google+ either....think I should ask my kids! :D

Anthea said...

It's hard when folks enter giveaways then cannot be contacted when they win; looks like Debra is going to miss out. She has made it hard for you to find her...
Good luck with that stitching, maybe work on it more often?!

Barb said...

Ophelia is looking good so far. I look forward to seeing more of her. Personally I'd just draw another name since she didn't leave a way to contact her.

Anne said...

It's linked! Ophelia is one of my favourite Shakespeare characters. Hopefully she will come forward with information. Google plus is frustrating. I can't reply to anyone using it....argh!, hugs!

cucki said...

I love Ophelia so much..my fav :)

Frances N said...

The Ophelia will be gorgeous!
I don't understand no-reply and I think that's what I am, too!!!! I've tried to fix it and just can't get it right! I don't understand Google +, either. I guess I should be glad I sat down and figured out how to get my blog going all by myself, even though I think there's a few things that aren't exactly right!!!! I really give up!!! LOL

Linda said...

Good luck with the stitching Kaye and with work.

Debra Butler said...

Hi Kaye,
Thought I should reply on your most recent post as well. I am so excited to have won your pattern. Sorry for the delay in replying but very excited to stitch your pattern. I have emailed you with my address. Again thanks so much!
Deb

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Hooray, Debra found you!

I love the Ophelia chart you are working on, it's clearly going to be the work of a lifetime. Or two!

Brigitte said...

Oh Kaye, this is such a gorgeous pattern. It should see the light of day more often. Definitely :)

Milly said...

Hello

Just found you!

Ophelia will be beautiful when finished.
Your blog is lovely.
Happy weekend.

SoCal Debbie said...

Yes, you should pull her out more often than every 3-1/2 years! LOL. I have some projects just like that, too! Good thing that Debra found you and claimed her prize!

Ophelia is very pretty - look forward to seeing her stitched up!
