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 check in ...

.... oh dear, a few day's late... but here are this month's Smalls, some you have seen already, one is new...

Firstly, here is my latest Small finish... American Santa....

This is a freebie from I don't know where stitched on what I think is 32 ct white linen using a variety of speciality threads, colours chosen by me.

I am quite pleased with him - he is going to make a cute ornie.





Secondly, I stitched "S" for Sampler from A Stitcher's Alphabet, a Freebie from Brookes Books, as a birthday gift for a friend and colleague at work. (She loved it)






Please check out Heather's blog Stitching Lotus to see what everyone else got up to for the Smalls SAL this month.

hugs,

Two lovely smalls. You have reminded me that my Santa was supposed to have a star charm at the end of his hat too. I must go see if I have one!
