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.

I have an idea!

A few year's ago, I used to take part in a Christmas Ornie SAL, run along much the same lines as Jo's Hallowe'en Ornie SAL is now.  I love this Hallowe'en Ornie SAL as it gives me some focus on stitching and finishing some Hallowe'en stitching and I used to love taking part in the Christmas one, too.

So, I would like to start a new Christmas Ornie SAL for the rest of 2015 and hopefully for 2016, too.

It would work like this:
 Each month we would stitch a Christmas Ornie on a theme.  For example, trees or santa or presents or snowmen or words, etc, with a free choice month thrown in here or there.

Now, as we still have over four months to Christmas, I do not think it is too late to start this year, with the aim of running it again in 2016.

There will be no check in post as such, just a post by the end of the month if you have a Christmas Ornie finished for that month.  You can opt in or out as you like.

If you join, you will be given sign up rights on the blog, so you just post when you are ready.

What do you all think?  Do you want to join in the fun?

I really only need one or two other people to get started (it would be a bit lonely on my own - lol!).

Just comment on this post and we will go from there.  

Also, if you do not have a blog but want to take part, I am happy to post on your behalf - just send me your pics and some commentary and that would work well - I am thinking of you Anna!

... and there may even by a prize or two given out randomly by me some months.

Come on. what more could you ask for?  lol!

Looking forward to some elves joining me,  and just to whet your appetite, here is a sweet little pillow which I plan to stuff tonight for FNwF.

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

I will definitely follow the blog and will give it a go too. There are so many designs in the JCS mags I like. This might be just the push to do them!

Carm said...

I would love to do this with you! I don't have a blog or camera. So I will need to have one of my children or GC send pics for me, LOL!

Kaye, I was very happy to get involved!
It may not be every month, but I will try :-)
I hope I can do it :-)

I can't do this this year, but 2016 should work!

Debbie said...

Count me in. This is a good way for me to actually get a few of my favorites stitched up!

Bea said...

Sounds like fun and a good way to get some ornaments stitched and maybe even finished!

Kate said...

Sure, Kaye, sounds like fun! It'll encourage me to try some finishing techniques.

I''ll be happy to join in. It will encourage me to catch up on my holiday stitching.

I seem to have lost my cross stitching mojo this year, so this may just be the thing to get me started again. Count me in.

Cathy said...

I would also love to participate if it's not too late. I love stitching for Christmas.
