My January Ornie

Hi Everyone, 

How much fun is this SAL going to be?  Thanks, Elaine for organising it and also the Christmas SAL which I am also participating in. I am going great guns on Halloween so far now!

My name is Kaye (or Kaisievic on the net sometimes) and my blog is Kitten Stitching, please come by and visit with me a while when you get the chance.  I am a fifty something educational book publisher (mainly of History books) and I live in the gorgeous leafy suburb of Eaglemont in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia with TraderVic (DH), my two youngest Dchildren and my DFIL.  I have been on blogger about 18 months now and have found that I have become quite addicted to it although I try hard not to let it get in the way of my other addictions passions, which are, of course, cross stitch, reading, travel, my family..... You get the picture.

I chose this cute design from Glory Bee featuring a pumpkin from the 2012 JCS Halloween mag.  

... and here is my progress so far:

I am using my own fabric - 32 ct overdyed Cocoa linen and I am substituting the Gentle Arts Sampler Threads with mainly Weeks Dye Works as they are the colours which I have!  I am pleased with my progress so far - this is what I managed to stitch in just one day and that was with an awful lot going on in the home yesterday (tradesmen on my doorstep at 7 am to install a new air conditioner - thank goodness as it was 41 (106 F) degrees yesterday! then the new dishwasher had to be installed and on it went!)


  1. Kaye your Ornie looks gorgeous, can;t wait to see more. Hugs!

    1. Thanks, Elaine - I hope to finish the stitching on it today - fingers crossed!

  2. Kaye,
    You did a wonderful stitching job.
