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.

Well, I couldn't resist!

Hi everyone,

I have to admit it, I am weak, weak, weak!  I could not resist the HAED sale and I have bought THREE more designs (that is now a total of SEVEN that I have acquired in the space of ONE month.  What did I tell you - weak-willed - that is me!

Well, enough of self-flagellation - they are so gorgeous and I am really happy with them.  Here they are below, I hope that you like them, too.
Jane and the Prisoner of the Woolhouse
This is the cover of a novel in a series of books with Jane Austen as an amateur detective.

La Belle Dame sans merci
This is one of my favourite poems by my favourite poet, Keats.

Wildwood Dancing
This is the cover of another novel, Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier, which is the story of the 12 dancing princesses, so I suppose it is a companion piece to my 12 Dancing Princesses HAED.

Off to drool over my new designs and do some more stitching on my Baboushka.

Bye for now, Kaye xoxox

Jane and the Prisoner of Woolhouse is gorgeous, I've been debating getting that for ages, so I can't wait to see your progress on it. Love the others as well!

Thanks, not sure when I will get to start it as it is now one of 7 HAED designs I now own. I will have to save up to buy the linen and threads. I think that I am going to have to stop looking at the HAED website - it is just too tempting!

Haha! I think we all get a little weak around a HAED sale!! I managed to resist ..... this time. Gorgeous new charts! Jane and the Prisoner of Woolhouse is stunning. It still amazes me how talented the artists are and how much detail there is in their charts. :)

Kaisievic said...

I know, Bec, I think that I have bought it just to own it and gloat over it!!! Sad, isn't it?

mdgtjulie said...

Oh, good, I'm not the only addict. I bought another one, and one of my followers said, "How many more HAEDs do you need???? LOL!" Of course, I replied that I need all of them!!! I'm glad you're along for the ride.

Kaisievic said...

Which one did you buy, Julie?

Joysze said...

Lovely patterns, Kaye. :D When are you starting one of those? :)

Kaisievic said...

Oh dear, Joysze, not sure - I have started Holbein's Henry as you know and I have the linen and threads for 12 dancing princesses ready to start. So, in a week or two when my bank balance is ready for it, I think that I will get the linen and threads for maybe Jane or La Belle Dame??? Can't make up my mind which to start first! lol

mdgtjulie said...

I posted on my blog, but I can't remember if you commented on it, Kaye!! I got Terri Rosario's Water. Of course, now I have to get Air, Earth, and Fire.

Kaisievic said...

Thanks, Gill, I keep wavering but at the moment I am leaning towards Jane and the Prisoner of Wool house. Next week it will be one of the other ones, I am sure.
lol

Kaisievic said...

@Julie, I have just looked up Water on the HAED website - it is gorgeous as are the other three. And, of course, you will have to get the other three!

mdgtjulie said...

Of course, lol. And then maybe the birthstone series... No, must resist!!!

Anne said...

I love LA Belle Dame and Jane!! I can see we do have similar styles :D

Kaisievic said...

@ Anne, oooh, which ones do you have?
