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.

IHSW round up ......

Well, I have to say that I have had the most productive IHSW this weekend.  Friday night (which happened to by FNSI)  I completed the Finishing on three small cushions, finished stitching a row of Halloween cats and did some sewing on another Halloween small cushion.  You can see pictures of all of these here.

Then on Saturday (late afternoon and evening) I finished stitching my first Little Sheep Virtue: Hope by LHN. This is a SAL I am doing with Sarah,  Lija and Anne.




Little Sheep Virtues: Hope
LHN
28 ct linen (unknown)
DMC threads

Then on Sunday, I did the final Finish on my two Halloween pieces, I am very pleased with how they have turned out and with the bright Halloween fabric I paired them with.






The last item I worked on was my PS Santa's 12 Days of Christmas which is a Sunday SAL with my dear friend, Linda.  I am up to Day 7.


So, as I said, the most productive of weekends.  I love it when FNSI and IHSW coincide.  If you want to see what everyone else got up to for either FNSI or IHSW, follow the links.

hugs,

P.S.  A couple of reminders.....
