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.

Hey Brigitte,

... look what came in the mail for me today?




I am so excited!  

Now, why my blog post title is "Hey Brigitte" is that on June 4, my dear bloggy friend Brigitte from At Brigitte's Place posted about her oldest WIP, Village Alphabet.
 You can read all about it on this post here.  
Now, dear Brigitte and I have very similar tastes in designs and when I saw her post, I instantly fell in love with Village Alphabet.  A bit of research on the internet later and an order was placed with Cross Stitch Stash, who specialise in Vintage, Out of Print and Hard to Find charts, and it arrived today!  Pretty quick service, I think!



I can't wait to go to my LNS later this week and kit this beauty up!


Oh, and somehow, the internet fairy slipped these two PS designs into my cart! lol!


Thanks, dear Brigitte, for inspiring me.

hugs,

Well done on finding the vintage chart! Your homework is to work out what each letter stands for. Brigitte said some are obvious but not all of them. There's a research task for you!
