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.

You were doing great on both your projects during the IHSW. Your rotation seems to work. Mine always work in the beginning and then they fall apart, lol.

Both are looking great. Like your idea for a rotation - I've never tried thread length.

It's no wonder you couldn't resist the new start, love the choice of thread on the Ebony and Ivory.

Looking fantastic!

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

These two are both looking good. The rotation is a great way to be able to stitch on both at the same time!
