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 SAL.....

So, I am just a few days late with my GG SAL update, although I did miss last month's altogether, so maybe I am really late?  lol!

The Gifted Gorgeousness SAL is run by the wonderful Jo from Serendipitous Stitching.  The idea is that every month we link to Jo's GG blog post to show off whatever we are stitching that is Gift-related.  It can be something we are making for someone special or a chart or threads with which we have been gifted or basically anything else we can shoehorn into the basic premise.

It is such a good idea, as we all have something we are doing in at least one of those categories, don't we?

So, here is my two month's worth of GG:

(In no particular order)

Brook's Books Stitcher's Alphabet "J for Japanese embroidery"



Lizzie Kate's "Life's a Stitch" (this is double GG as it was not only a TP but it will be gifted to a friend).

JBW's "Wedding Bells":



Brook's Books Stitcher's Alphabet "K for Knitting"


"Counting" by The Primitive Hare (I have started a pink version but I cannot lay my hands on it right this minute!)


Pineberry Lane Freebies:  (sorry, I cannot seem to find the links right now and it is very grey here today but the fabbie is a bit more blue and the beads do sparkle more normally)





Anyway, that is my GG for January and February, follow this link to see more GG at Jo's blog.

hugs,

This is truely a lot of Gifted Gorgeousness here and although it's worth of two months it's still a lot. I love your Life's a Stitch piece, ist has such wonderful colours, so different from the original colour scheme that I used. It's only for a short while that I try to change colours and use my own thread colours on a piece.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Thanks for taking part in GG this month (and last month!). These are all such great projects. The alphabet is on my list, my ever growing list!
