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.

Postal goodies, a winner, FNSI and IHSW?

Look what the postie brought me last night!

Elizabeth Lamb plus all the gorgeous NPI silks.  This is going to be stitched in honour of our dear SoCal Debbie who passed away suddenly recently.  It will be one of my 59 starts with Linda for the Debbie's Super Duper Ultimate Crazy January/February 2015 challenge - Linda, how do I let you talk me into these things?  59 starts?



The postie also brought Something wicked mystery sampler - with fabbie and threads.  Now, I just have to remember to order Parts 2 and 3. This may be added to the challenge as, obviously, I cannot get it finished by this Halloween.




Now, for some fun, the winner of my My Favourite Film Giveaway is

Jo 


Jo,  I will search out a selection of patterns for you to choose one  from over the weekend and email you.

Congratulations, my dear.


Now, tonight is Friday Night Sew In (FNSI), you can join in the fun here.

And, according to my calculations, it is also International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (IHSW), normally you can sign up at Joysze's blog but the sign up doesn't seem to be up yet.  I do know that her Dad has been ill, so she has most likely been very busy looking after her dear Dad.

Anyway, we can all still stitch like mad over the weekend.  

So, what are you going to be doing?

Me, I have lots of plans - I just hope that I am not too tired when I get home from work tonight.

hugs,  

P.S. Still no sign of my "stolen" stitchery from last post.
