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 - March update


The Smalls SAL 2015 is hosted by the lovely Heather, from Stitching Lotus. On the last Wednesday of every month you sign into the sign in post on her blog, here and link to your Smalls SAL post.

Basically, we....
"Stitch a small every month. You get to decide what a small is for you. 50×50 stitches? 100×100 stitches? It’s up to you."


My Small this month is Leona Adams by Blackbird Designs, which I have rechristened "Kaye Leslie" (my two given names) and further personalised by adding my date of birth (given it all away now, haven't I?).

This has been such a lovely design to stitch - gorgeous fabric and lovely muted colours.

Blackbird Designs
28 ct Mocha Linen
Suggested (with a few variations) speciality threads.


I have also been working on another special project for myself using bits and pieces of this and a couple of other designs but you will have to wait until it is done to see what else I have been up to with this lovely design.

Now, don't forget to check out everyone else's Smalls - here.
