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.

FNSI and IHSW report....

Hi everyone,

Here is my FNSI and IHSW report, my first for the year, I think as I am pretty sure that I missed January (but who can remember back that far now? lol!)

Basically I worked very hard on this new design I picked up at my local LNS, Lazy Daisy on Wednesday (I went a bit stash enhancement mad but more of that another day).

Leona Adams
Blackbird Designs


I have had to mix up a few of the colours and I have added my first and middle names instead.


"Kaye Leslie"
Blackbird Designs
Mixture of GAST, DMC and WDW threads 
28ct Mocha Linen

I hope that you all like it, I am loving stitching it very much!

If you would like to see what everyone else was up to, please follow these links:



hugs,

Brigitte said...

Such a lovely BBD design - which I had never seen before. But that is no wonder because I haven't been on the news sites of the online shops where I usually order from for quite a long time. I just have too much stash already, lol. But I'm very curious to see what else landed in your shopping cart when you were stash enhancing.

Tiffany Pincombe said...

Beautiful colours!

KimM said...

Kaye - lovely, simply lovely.
