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.

Halloween Ornie SAL - May update ...

.... well, I didn't think I was going to get an ornie done by the end of the month, which is tomorrow.  But my quality controller got on my case, so I made a concerted effort last night to get my Pumpkin ornie finished: 


... and here is the result:


"King of Halloween"
Freebie from 
28 count Waterfall Blue Lugana 
(the photos do not do the colour justice - it is more a mint green)
Pumpkin: WDW Fiesta (my favourite colour for Halloween pumpkins)
Rest of design: various DMC threads

Anyway, that is this month for me - off to choose my June design.

VERY nice! I'm agreeing with you about the WDW thread - makes a great looking pumpkin. By my time, you finished with 48 hours to spare!
