Well, I didn't get as much crafty stuff done as I would have liked this Friday night and weekend (isn't that often the way) as I got caught up in Wedding stuff and Christmas celebrations. Both of which are fun things to do, so I can't complain.
I did finish the stitching on the ring cushion for the wedding and have chosen the backing fabric (one of my favourites from my stash and I did that cool thing again of just putting my hand in the fabric box and pulling out the perfect fabric - I love it when that happens) and purchased the ribbon for tying the rings to the cushion:
Then, I stitched some more on my Little Sheep Virtues SAL: Love. I am doing this SAL with Sarah, Lija and Anne.
Last night we had our yearly Christmas get together with some very good friends. We sat out on the deck and we were rewarded with this wonderful sunset.
Then, on the way home tonight I saw Melbourne Town Hall, all wrapped up like a Christmas present:
That is all for now, one and a half days left of work for the year and less than three weeks to the wedding! Yikes!
I hope that you are all having a great lead up to Christmas,
- 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.
