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.

Gifted Gorgeousness to come...

Hmm, this is going to be another post inspired by the gorgeous Jo of Serendipitous Stitching!

This one is about her Gifted Gorgeousness SAL for 2015.

The idea of this SAL is that once a month we post about any stitching we have done involving anything we have been gifted.

Well, Jo kindly sent me her pattern of Blanc Noel by A Mon Ami Pierre (who has stopped designing) once she completed her stitching on it.  I think her kindness was due to my persistent admiration (and hinting, maybe) of the pattern and the beautiful work she was doing.

So, this will be my first Gifted Gorgeousness start for the SAL.



Thank you, Jo, it was so kind of you to send me the pattern.

hugs,

P.S. Don't forget it is FNSI tonight, hosted by Wendy of Sugarlane Quilts, you can sign up here.
And this weekend is IHSW, hosted by Joysze of Random Ramblings, you can sign up for that here.

Both of these are the last times for this year.  Oh, where has 2014 gone?

Love, Kaye

I love AMAP designs... I did not know she was no longer designing... Haven't purchased any of late. Makes the ones I have in my stash even more endearing! Thinking about joining the GG SAL... I have been blessed in many stitching ways, so it would probably work for me! We shall see... Hugs!

Andrea said...

A beautiful chart, looking forward to your progress in the coming months.
