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.

September Smalls SAL update....

Well, I have a couple of Smalls finishes to show you this month for my Smalls SAL, if you are not sure what I am talking about then please follow the link.

First up is "Chimney Disasters" by Sue Hillis Designs ....

Ta da!  Santa is all stuck down that chimney!


Such a fun design!

Next up is my Prairie Schooler finish, "Summer" from Book #138 "Measure of a year"




I am very pleased as to how this turned out, now I just need to work out how to best Finish it.

So, feeling pretty pleased with myself re my Smalls this month, please check out everyone else's Smalls update here.

Now, it is the inaugural (and probably only ever) Grand Final eve public holiday today - yay! - and it is both Friday Frolics and Friday Night with Friends - double yay! - so three days of stitching coming up - triple yay!

Have fun everyone, 

hugs,

Hello Kaye, love Santa down the chimney! Can almost hear him say "Doh!" too!! Now, how do I join your Friday Frenzy and your Tudor Tuesday SALs? I did inquire previously but it may have gone astray.

Looks like poor Santa isn't going to make all of his appointments for Christmas Eve. Too many cookies and glasses of milk I suppose. Cute little project.

The Prairie Schooler Summer stitch is lovely. Their designs are always fun to stitch and give great results. I really like that sun motif especially. A nice welcome to summer for you ... and a farewell for us.

It must be nice to have stitching groups that you can get together with regularly. Sharing a hobby with others keeps your mojo going I think.

Cheers!
