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.

Smalls SAL 2015 February Check in...



Hi everyone,

Only three day's late with my Smalls SAL check in, although I must admit some of these Smalls may actually belong to January but I just never had time to check in last month.

The same goes for my Halloween Ornie SAL check in - the last day to check in for February and I didn't have a chance to do last month's check in either.

Anyway, here goes, let's start with Halloween....


January:


Summer Witch
28 count Linen
Various threads


February:



Halloween Snow Globe
28ct Linen
Various threads

Smalls SAL:                                    (Of course, both of the finishes above count as Smalls, too)




Love  - Little Sheep Virtues by LHN
28 ct Cocoa
Using suggested threads

Now, these last several made an appearance a couple of post's ago on my GG post but here they are again if you missed that post:

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


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)





So, that is all for February for me!

Now onto March for all my stitching commitments, what will you be up to in this new month?

hugs,
