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.

Hallowe'en Ornie SAL_ March update

For those of you who do not know it, here are some details about the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL, 2015, which is graciously hosted by the wonderful Jo from Serendipitous Stitching.

Hallowe'en Ornie SAL 2015


Welcome to the Spookiest Blog on the Block! Each month we have a different theme. You choose your chart, fabric and threads. Share your progress as you go along and post your finished piece by the last day of the month. You can join at anytime throughout the year and choose which months you wish to stitch with us. Happy Spooky Stitching.
Each month there is a list of themes - this month's being Owls or Ravens.

THEMES FOR 2015

January - Witches
February - Skeletons
March - Owls And Crows
April - Tombstones
May - Pumpkins
June - Free Choice
July - Haunted Houses
August - Black Cats
September - Spooky Words
October - Ghosts
November - Creepy Trees
December - Free Choice

I was initially going to stitch an Owl but all the designs I found seemed just too twee to me.

Then I found this one which included a Crow from the JCS Halloween Ornament 2014 Magazine.  I had just the perfect fabric for it and off I went.

I am sorry, the photos are a bit washed out - the fabric is really quite a strong orange colour.

Very cute, Kaye--it looks like it stitched up quite quickly, too, which is always nice :)

Frances N said...

What a fun way to get a collection of Halloween ornaments! Your stitching is so cute!

Bea said...

That's a great ornament - love that touch of colour, it really catches your eye. I've never considered myself a Hallowe'en person, but may have to reconsider as I've seen some really great patterns being stitched.

Congrats on the super cute finish Kaye.

It lovely, congrats on the finish! Somehow I have missed this SAL. I'll go to Jo's site and check it out. Maybe isn't to late to play with you guys.
And I noticed that you joined Linda in Sunday stitching. Me too! I'm stitching Santa's 12 days of Christmas. That's two SAL's that we are in together. Smile :) (I have to get back to that Quaker Christmas II, maybe I can finish it for Christmas?)

Great design, when it first appeared in my reader i thought the little house was a Tardis!
I've started my crows but I'm saving them for my train journey on Monday. I also have an owl I like as well.
