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.

Travelling Treasure Chest....

... has arrived at Chez De Petro, I have drooled over and fondled the wonderful pattern choices and finally chose four which 'spoke' to me - I know, a little greedy but I have replaced them with five additions, so I think that is fair and after all, I am a pirate!

These are the four which I chose:


I chose CCN's Joy for my new DIL, Joy, this will make a perfect birthday present for her and its bright, beautiful colours express her lovely personality perfectly.


This one is definitely ME! After all, I am a female historian.


I absolutely adores all things LHN and all things Americana, so choosing this was a no-brainer for me!


... and this I thought that this sampler had that old world look that I just love.



The Travelling Chest goes to the next lady pirate - Cucki - I hope that you like the designs which I have added.

hugs, 

P.S. Cucki, I will be posting today or tomorrow - at the moment I am stuck at home waiting for a couple of tradesmen to arrive to do some jobs around the house.

Nice choices! I think it's fine to take four if you have replaced them with more than that number. It keeps the chest fresh!

The CCN is a happy cute pattern! I've seen the LK quote elsewhere on the Interwebz but never as a stitch. I don't think you're greedy for taking four, you put in five so it more than evens out! :D
