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.

It's Time ....

... for another Girl's Nest Giveaway (I have decided that I am going to try to have at least one Giveaway a month in 2017, if not even more frequently).

Why is it called a Girl's Nest Giveaway?  A very good question, my dear friends. Luckily, the answer is fairly simple.  The Girl's Nest is what my sewing room is affectionately referred to by TraderVic and my family and as I am on an eternal quest to tidy up,organise and streamline my what-seems-to-be-a-very VAST collection of sewing, quilting, stitching and knitting stuff goodies, I have decided that sharing the stuff love is one good way of doing this.

So, up for grabs this time around are two gorgeous items from my collection.....

Both of which were very excitedly bought online a few year's ago, after seeing them on, I think, dear Jo's blog (Jo, if you were not my enabler, I will happily delete "blaming" you) and I do love them.  #1 is so me, all medieval and historic, and #2 looks so useful and pretty but you know, apart from one pencilled entry in one of them (can't remember which one now as I have carefully rubbed it out), I have NOT USED them - hence the giveaway....

#1

"A Perpetually Engaging Diary from the Collection of Michael & Elizabeth Feller"










#2 
"Ackworth Memory Book"








Rules:

1. You must be a follower.

2. If you post about the Giveaway on your blog, you get an extra name in the hat.

3. Comment on this post only, be clear that you would like to be entered in the draw.

4. Open worldwide.

5. You may enter for either #1 or #2 or both prizes.

5. Giveaway closes on Midnight on Sunday 5th February 

6. Good luck!

Have a great day, everyone, 

hugs,

I love the name The Girl's Nest! Perfect. Your idea to have more giveaways is a lovely one. Please don't include me this time but someone will love these.

Rowyn said...

Please throw my name in the hat for your generous giveaway! I'd be happy to win either of them. :)

Mini said...

Ooh I like the name for your stitchy den-The Girl's nest. I agree the best way to reduce your stash is to pass on to someone who would make better use of it.

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

I do believe you are correct in naming me! Here's the evidence that I own both books but have not yet sullied them with pencil or pen.
