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.

12 Days of Christmas in Blogland - Day 3 Let's have a Giveaway!


Hello lovely bloggers, 

Today is Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas in Blogland and so I thought it was time for a Giveaway.

If you would like to win this lovely kit (it contains chart, fabric and all threads) by Mar Bek "The Angel's Prayer", please comment on this post only to enter.  I will post internationally and if you would like to post about it on your blog,well, that would be very nice. I will draw the winner at the end of the 12 Days of Christmas in Blogland - on January 6th (the last of the 12 days is January 5th).




It has been a very quiet day today - I have nearly finished La Belle Etoile - I am hoping for a Happy Dance tomorrow, but in the meantime, I found this stitching from last year - I had forgotten that I had finished it, as you can see it is not even ironed! - it is part of Mill Hill's Christmas Village series - "The Toy Shop"  I must get it framed, although I do have a number of the other designs - maybe a quilt?  What do you all think?

Anyway, off to watch some "Treme" with DH - whose back is slowly getting better.  Thank you everyone who has sent good wishes his way.  Thank you also to everyone who sent kind wishes our way about our stormy day.  We really got off very lightly compared to many other families in Melbourne.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all of them. You can read about the Christmas Day storm here, if you are interested.

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Kaye ... Do not include me in your giveaway but I wanted to comment & say how cute that toy shop stitching is! I don't know what size it is but it looks pretty big. You could frame it but also maybe make it into a pillow? Isn't it fun to find stitchings we've completed & forgotten about : ) So glad to hear your husband is doing better. Blessings, Shirlee

Toy Shop looks lovely. I think a quilt is a great idea if you have other similar designs. Look forward to happy dancing with you.

Hugs,
Veronica.

Hi Kaye, could you please enter me in your giveaway too? :)

The toy shop is so cute! Maybe you could temporarily frame it and then make it into a quilt later when other designs are finished? :)
