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.

February WIPocalypse Update....

Hmmm, I am thinking that my WIPocalypse is going to be even more of an epic fail this month but let's see....



WIPocalypse
WIPocalypse is hosted for us by awesome SAL Mama, Measi's Musings.

Each and every month we have to share the projects we want to complete before the End Of The World.  

Following dear Jo's lead, I have chosen my "17 in '17" which are the 17 projects I want to focus on this year.  You can see the full list on this post here.



I have finished both January and February (and February is actually framed - by me).





Project 2: Imaginating - Halloween Happiness



A bit behind on this design, I seem to be struggling with this drunken witch - I am going to go try to get her into some sort of order shortly!


Project 4: The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery - The Twelve Days of Christmas






Now, this is one project that I am on target with - yay!

Hmm!  Only three WIPocalypse projects worked on this month - yep, EPIC FAIL! 

.....and I can tell you, March is not shaping up to be any better - what is wrong with me?????  Oh, I know, I have a very serious condition called Startitis!  lol!

Oh dear, maybe I am not cut out to be a WIPocalypse type of gal?????

Okay, see you soon, off to work in a minute or two...



                                                    hugs,

Oh dear, startitis! That can be deadly (on your storage space). I think you're doing great - you made progress on four different things this month!

Linda said...

Great progress Kaye. Love your projects. When are you going to start working on one of the cut-thrus?

Startis is a common complaint... I have it too :o)
I have tried over the last week to stitch on my WIPs but have only managed to stitch on a couple from my WIPocalypse list!
12 Days is looking gorgeous.... and that witch is a good witch once you get her tamed!!
hugs x

Oh yes startitis, I think it's doing the rounds at the moment! It's a hobby so just go with it and do what's fun!

Lesley said...

Lovely stitching. January's snowman has a great scarf.Love seeing 12 days.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Haha, startitis has been caused by Kerry and her March Madness I fear!

The February piece looks lovely in the frame, I am sure that you will catch up soon.

Jan & Feb look great, I love the colours in both of them.
Great progress on your other two. As for the rest, you still have time!

Hi Kaye ,wow you do such beautiful work,love that snowman.

AnaCristina said...

Hi Kaye! Where do you buy the fabric to cross stitch? Is it by a store in internet?

Julie said...

12 Days is so gorgeous

Carol said...

Love your January and February finishes, Kaye--and the little Frosted Pumpkin piece is looking adorable :)

Enjoy your weekend--hope it includes a lot of stitching time!

Sarah in Stitches said...

Beautiful stitching, Kaye! :D

Margaret said...

Everything looks great! Startitis is a dangerous thing. Watch out! lol!

Melinda Forbes said...

I love your blog and all your projects.

Brigitte said...

Startiris is one of the best conditions in our hobby, I love it, lol. And I love the growing number of WIPs. Of course, I sometimes think it's time to finish something and then I choose a WIP and stitch on it for several days - until I see a new chart in my stash that I have to start immediately, lol.
At least you worked on three of your 17 projects last month. I think that's OK.
