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.

FNSI Fun last night......

.... how did you all go last night with sewing/stitching/crafting for Friday Night Sew In (FNSI)?  [Click the link if you want to see what everyone else did].

I was very pleased with what I accomplished.

First off, I finished the stitching on this row of cats with bright green eyes, taken from a larger design in this year's JCS Halloween Ornie Magazine.  The fabric is actually quite orange, I am not sure why the camera washed it out so much.


Then I cut out some strips to border another Halloween design I finished stitching the other day.


Then I Finished three small cushions:


Springtime Messenger:

... and Strawberries x 2.


... and lastly, I stitched a little more on my Little Sheep Virtues SAL (I stitched the snow)



So, what did you all get up to?  Tell me, tell me, please.

Now, for the rest of the weekend it is a funeral for me to go to today (the mother of my sweet friend, Marie) , then more stitching fun for IHSW.

Gotta go, have a good one, everyone,

hugs,
