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.

Stash Empire Building


Today, I had a thrill.... the lovely postman brought me a parcel from 123stitch.
But somehow Furio thought that it was for him and tried to keep it all for himself!





 I just love this Quaker Christmas II with all of its Christmas Carol titles.




 ... and I couldn't resist another Nora Corbett - the first in her 12 Days of Christmas series.


Linda and Debbie, I have replaced my Prairie Schooler's Santa's 12 Days of Christmas patterns Yay!  - now I can get back to our SAL, thank goodness.


Lastly, I couldn't resist Christmas Calories - so cute!  Oh, my goodness, I have just realised that all of these are Christmas Designs!  Obviously my subconscious is trying to tell me something!


I also received the fabric and thread for Christmas Calories, it is a lovely pinky-mauve fabric.


Just to finish off, here is Furio helping me work today.  (I had a work from home day today - Furio always loves it because he is happiest when the family are home).



Thanks for visiting everyone,

hugs,

Yay for stash! Nora Corbett - love it. Prairie Schooler love it and By Gone Stitches not only love it but have it! I am a little intimidated by the size of the quaker chart - its huge! Christmas calories looks like such a fun stitch how could you not smile when you look at that?

Bea said...

That is wonderful stash - Furio obviously shares your great taste! There is nothing as wonderful as a stash parcel! Enjoy all your new designs.
