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.

Flower Fairies started

Well, this is my third post for the day.  I doubt that I will be able to keep this up but time will tell, I suppose.

I am starting on the Flower Fairies design which came as a freebie with the latest issue of "The world of Cross Stitching" (176).  Here is the picture of the finished design:
Pretty, isn't it?  However, I had a hard time sorting the threads.  I tried to do it last night but the light was just not good enough to distinguish light peach from peach, etc.  See the picture below:
See how similar all of the colours are?

Well, I am off to start stitching it right now.

Bye for now, Kaye xoxox

Hi Kitty, I have the same kit. I took it on my holiday recently, only to find I have lost the chart during a recent clearout of my books... I would very much like to still do the kit. Any ideas how I could get my hands on the chart on page 10? Thanks, Catherine
