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.

August FNSI and IHSW update...

Well, it was another busy weekend for me, with family mostly, and next weekend will be filled again with love and laughter as we are going to the engagement party of my dear friend's son and DD, DS2 and I will be taking my Dad out for a second birthday lunch!  How lovely and blessed I am.

However, this weekend was FNSI and IHSW (follow the links to see what everyone else got up to) and I managed to do a little bit of this....

What will be a Christmas tree biscornu..



and that.... "B" from Brookes Books A stitcher's Alphabet....


and a little more.....  Noel Blanc


What did you all get up to?

hugs,

Lovely stitching Kaye. ~thanks for your comment on my blog. I have been trying to join Cross Stitch and Discuss but it keeps saying pending. I have tried to post a photo on the Christmas Ornament blog but it wouldn't attach.

Thank you, Joan, you are a no-reply-commenter so I couldn't email you back. I notice that on your blog profile only the Christmas Ornie SAL is listed, so you should be able to post there - maybe the pic was too big?

Kaisievic said...

Thx, Linda.
