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.

April IHSW report....

As promised in my last blog post, The Tale of the Three Hatboxes, , I did keep stitching on the next motif on the Danish bell pull found in the bottom Hatbox for IHSW.

So, here it is, one more motif finished....


Just to clarify, IHSW is International Hermit & Stitch Weekend and is hosted by the lovely Joyce - you can read all about it here and link up here.  This is a weekend where stitchers from all around the world try to stitch like mad, all together so to speak. 

Always a fun weekend.


Well, that is all for me for today - I am nursing myself today, just getting over a shocking cold, so taking it easy.

hugs,

Great addition to your bell pull, it's a very charming design and such a great find from your hatboxes! The three red stitches in the border look like tiny hearts :) I'm glad you still have the chart and threads to work it with. Hope you're feeling better soon :)

So great to see that the discovery of the long forgotten treasures was so motivating for you. Nice little finished motif.
Hopefully your cold will go away soon.

Lovely IHSW stitching. Hope you feel better very soon.

Wow, how amazing to find so many UFOs! And nice to find some that just need finishing as well. That Valentine's towel from yesterday's post could probably be fiddled around with on the edge and called finished too. :) How much more do you have to the bellpull?

Renee said...

Beautiful stitching! I do hope you are feeling better.

Carol said...

Really lovely addition to your bellpull, Kaye!

Bea said...

So sorry you are under the weather - best wishes for feeling better soon. Lovely stitching and I hope we see more of those finds.

Penny said...

I'm so glad you were able to finish another motif! But not glad to hear you have been under the weather. Hope you are on the mend. : )
