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.

Friday Frolics, FNSI, IHSW and Gifted Gorgeousness ...

Last night's Friday Frolic...

... true to the spirit of Friday Frolics, I went to my Girl's Nest (as TraderVic calls it) and I chose a WIP at random to stitch on last night and over the weekend for Friday Frolics  (FF) and Friday Night Sew-in (FNSI) and International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (IHSW) and for my Gifted Gorgeousness (GG) post - talk about making it all work for you!

It is a sweet design called Proverbi 3 by Paola Gattiblu, which had been sent to me as a gift by a fellow blogger a year or two ago (unfortunately I did not keep a very good record of who sent it to me or even of when I started it, so if the lovely blogger who did reads this, please let me know, my dear).

This is my before photo:



I plan to stitch some more on this over the weekend, so watch this space for a further update on my progress.


How did you all go with your Friday Frolics?  Have a great weekend.

hugs,

Thanks for taking part in GG this month.
I hope your mystery benefactor reveals themselves! I try to keep the cards or envelope with gifts to help me remember but that gets difficult when you're trying to find a certain chart in the stash!

Beautiful start!

Lovely stitching - and a beautiful piece of fabric. Looking forward to seeing it grow - the stitching, not the fabric!

Brigitte said...

You chose a nice piece that you could use for all four events. How clever, lol. Nice progress and I'm curious now to see more of it.

Bea said...

A multi-use piece of stitchery, got to love it. A very pretty little design.
