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.

Some advice please...

I am so close to finishing Afternoon in Paris by CCN 


(Sorry about the wavy lines - I am not sure why my camera is doing that.)

However, firstly I would like some advice on the flower motif along the bottom.  
This one on the left is how the pattern is designed with a flat sort of top on the flower.

But, I think I like it better how I have stitched it on the right....


 I would love to know what you all think, so, some advice please?  

Flat or pointy flowers?

hugs, 


P.S. Don't forget to check out Girls' Nest Giveway #4, it closes on Sunday morning.

Hi Kaye i like the flower the way you did it and flat,good luck with your choice xx

Hmmm... the flower looks nice both ways, but it's *your* piece of stitchery and it sounds like you prefer the "pointy" version better. I say go for it! ;)

Karyn said...

I love it both ways, Kaye, but your version adds dimension and some personalization, so I say go for that...but it is your WIP.

I like the points.

Kay said...

Pointy for me. x

Manuela said...

A wonderful finish.

Mii Stitch said...

Both look good!! Decisions, decisions!! :D

Brigitte said...

For me it would be the pointy version.

Carm said...

Kaye, the pointy ones are great!

I don't think you can go wrong with either. It looks fantastic! --Andrea

Carol said...

Love the pointed look, Kaye--this is such a lovely piece :)

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

I vote for pointy flowers!

Tiffstitch said...

The pointy one seems more interesting and more flowery, especially with the colour change on the right, it seems like more petals involved or something?

Barb said...

I like the way you did it too. I often get those wavy lines on my photos too, I have no idea why!!

Debra Butler said...

I like it the way it was charted, but it is always fun to personalize your piece so go with what is pleasing to you.

I like the flower both ways, but if you like it pointy then that's how you should stitch it! :D
