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.

Just a little bit bad?

Maybe?????

I have a confession to make, yesterday I popped into my LNS, Lazy Daisy, to visit the Wonderful Wendy to organise framing of American Baby.  Of course, I was lucky enough that she had just received a shipment of some new designs, some of which went straight into my shopping basket - lol!

Do you want to see?  (Silly question, I know!)


Two CCN designs:  "Afternoon in Paris" and "Afternoon in London"



A new to me, PS design: "Evergreen" (Just perfect for either the PS SAL blog or maybe the Christmas Ornie SAL blog)

... and two gorgeous Rosewood Manor designs: "Peacocks and Posies" (stitched with WDW Bethlehem - gorgeous) and "Twin Samplers", this last one is absolutely delicious with its pastel shades on Shale linen (I have the linen on order).



Lastly, another of my favourite designers, Blacbird Design's "Midnight Watch" - how could I resist that gorgeous black cat?



So, how bad have I been?  You tell me!

(Hmm!  I won't tell you about the three Jean Farish designs I just downloaded as pdfs or the big order I just put into Down Sunshine Lane - no, I won't! lol!)

Have a great day everyone, 

Fingers crossed that I get to work okay as there is industrial action happening with the trains today and tomorrow but I can hear some going past, so maybe I will be lucky!

hugs, 

P.S. Sorry if I haven't replied to your emails lately but I have been swamped with everyone's comments on the four new SAL blogs which I started last month - thank goodness I have finally had the sense to work out how to turn that function off!

Also, watch this space for a Friday Frolics SAL blog sign up!

Lovely new stash enhancements! I'm sure your other patterns were getting lonely so they will be happy to have newbies around. ;)

Naughty & Nice! AriadnefromGreece!

Kate said...

You're not bad at all, Kay! I couldn't have resisted those lovelies either. Ooh, those two CCN designs are at the top of my wish list right now. Not sure when I can get to my LNS to get them. And new Jean Farish and goodies from Down Sunshine Lane? Yay!! Have fun with all your new goodies.

Ooohhh, so pretty! I love these designers. Great picks! :D

Christine M said...

No, you haven't been bad, Kaye. You are just preparing for when you retire and won't have the money to buy patterns! I'm sure that won't really stop you but you can use it as an excuse. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Christine xx

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

Christine is right! It's a retirement fund. Especially the PS charts. You do have very good taste in designs too.

Carol said...

Nothing there looks bad--everything looks good!! Enjoy your new goodies, Kaye :)

jhm said...

Remember PS is retiring! Have to get those charts now. I also have midnight watch - but it will not get done before this Halloween.
Enjoy everything!

Gillie said...

A little bit bad......thoroughly wicked, lol! But just think, lots of WiPs for this Friday Frolic SAL that is bubbling away in your crafty mind! Love the London and Paris ones particularly!

Brigitte said...

Oh Kaye, whenever I see other stitchers enhance their stash I feel that wellknown urge to check on my overflowing wish list and do the same. But then I dive into my stah and look around and pull out charts and that keeps the urge at bay, lol.

Your new charts are absolutely wonderful, particularly the Rosewood Manor ones.

Really? You are thinking about a Friday Frolics SAL blog? Yeah!

Justine said...

Love your new stash, naughty lady! I'm a bit late to PS designs, just as they retire. Those CCN designs are so cute. Glad to hear you are opening up Friday Frolics as a SAL, it sounds like fun.
