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.

Back to Denmark.....

Well, this Friday Frolics  I thought that I should pull out my Danish Bell pull again - only about four more motifs to go and this very long term project would be finished.  You can read all about its provenance in this blog post - The Tale of Three Hatboxes.


This is what it was looking like on Friday before I started stitching again (sorry for the crumpled linen)....


Unfortunately, a bit of frogging went on but eventually I ended up here...



... and then by Sunday evening, I was here - just some backstitching to finish and another motif will be finished!



Well, that is all for me this week - off to work today to earn some money to pay for more stash!  lol!

Have a great week everyone, 

hugs, 

P.S. I also did some stitching on a Prairie Schooler piece - you can read about it here.

Such a beautiful piece. Each motif is lovely on its own, so the finish will be stunning.

How beautiful, Kaye! Warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. I am also a cat lover (I have one male cat, black and white with green eyes, 3 years old, named Romeo). I see that we are very close in age, too. I will be 60 in October. You have a lovely blog. :)

Great work on your Danish Bell Pull, lovely little house.
Laughing at Jocondine's comment too!

Your bell pull is growing nicely, Kaye! You'll have a finish in no time :)

I do remember reading your blog post when you found this project -- It is looking great, and it will always be so special - lost and then found.

Great progress! It looks lovely :D

Excellent work! Glad you're able to progress on this one again. You'll get it off the UFO list soon.

Brigitte said...

Great that you pulled out this beautiful piece again. Motif by motif you will get it done anytime soon. And yes, I still remember your story of the three hat boxes, lol.

Justine said...

Glad to hear this one didn't go back into the hatbox again for too long! Have you ever visited Denmark? We are going to Copenhagen for the weekend next month as a treat to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. I am planning a small Danish stitch to commemorate our trip.
