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.

Oh no, here it is the 20th September already....

.... and I am just posting my Stitching Pie for August!  

Okay, what is my Stitching Pie, I hear you ask?  

Well, I am "stealing" yet another great idea from my dear Stitchy and Bloggy friend, Jo, from Serendipitous Stitching. Each month she includes a pie graph of which projects she has been stitching on - showing how much time, proportionally, has been spent on each one in that month.  You can see her August Pie, here.

I really like this idea, so I am copying it, thank you Jo, I hope that you don't mind, so here is my Stitching Pie for August.....



Here is the breakdown of minutes over the month:


Two of the above projects are knitting projects - the Pom pom twisted scarf and the London Blanket for DD.  There are a number of finished pieces as well, five in fact - In a Garden, Little Red Riding Hood, Train Baby Sampler, Believe in Christmas and Winter Wonderland.

For interest's sake, I added up all of my craft minutes for the month of August - and as you can see I really need to up my crafting game - too much red (which is all the other things in life that I do - sleeping, working, cooking, reading, shopping, exercising, socialising, etc.)







Anyway, I hope that you find this data interesting - I certainly do!

Thanks again, Jo, for the great idea.

hugs,

Well Kaye, you definitely need more craft time!If I tried to do one of those charts I would have no craft time!

Great idea, really interesting to see how much crafting time you manage to fit in, hope that segment gets bigger for September.

Good idea to try out the pie chart and I know how you feel about not having enough stitching time. But you were also visiting a lot, so that makes it harder. :)

Love those pie charts.... but you so need more crafting time in your life!!
I keep trying to record stitching time and stitches but after a couple of days I forget to do it and then the momentum is lost!

I'm glad you're doing a pie, I find them very interesting. but you do need more stitching time for sure.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I like pie!
I like the first pie but the second pie has too much other stuff! Surely you don't need to sleep so much?
