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.

Mary Wigham update plus Baboushka pattern moving on

Hello lovely bloggers,

I thought that I would show you the progress of my Mary Wigham (Ackworth School) Sampler:



I am really pleased with the way the variegated threads are working out.  However, after working feverishly on Mary for about 3 weeks now, I have decided this week to get back to my HAED project, Holbein's Henry and maybe a bit on Isabella's garden.

Now, you might remember that a couple of posts ago, I said that I wanted to pass the Baboushka pattern on  plus the threads that were left.  Well, the lucky person who will get to stitch Baboushka is:

Gracie from Needles, pins and dragonflies.  You can find her blog here

Gracie, please email me your snail mail address and I will send you the pattern and the threads.  My email address is KayeDeP@gmail.com

I hope that you enjoy stitching her as much as I did.

Well, bye for now, everyone,

love Kaye xoxox

Hi Kaye - Thanks for stopping by! Great blog - as soon as I finish commenting - I'm going to follow you. That still sounds so wrong to say!

Your Mary Wigham will be a stunner - love your floss choices.

You asked who designed Northwind - it's by Silver Creek Samplers.
