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.

First post on blog!

Hi everyone,

This is my first post on my new blog.  I am a first time blogger so please be kind!  I did intend to add some photos of my stitching - I thought that I would show a finished piece and then something that I am working on but the camera battery is dead!  Next time I will try to be more organised.

I have been knitting, stitching and quilting for probably over 40 years now. Wow, that does make me seem old.  But I did start fairly young.  Despite nearly failing needlework in Year 7 at school I have actually gone onto develop a passion for craft.  At the moment I am really back into cross stitch but as a teenager and in my early 20s I knitted like a crazy woman.  Then it was cross stitch and long stitch, sewing (when the children were little) and then quilting and lastly, at the moment, as I said cross stitch again.

I also love to read, love history and love to travel.  So, I intend to post about those elements of my life on my blog, too.  Cooking is a great pastime, too, although nightly meals do become a bit of a drag!  Lastly, I love my TV and films, so they will probably get a spot in the blog as well.  I hope that it doesn't become too crowded.

I have called my blog "Kitten Stitching" after the two family kittens: Furio (ginger, half-Tongkinese) and Milo (grey tabby) - both males.  Unfortunately, Milo seems to have gone walkabout at  the moment (for the first time) so we are all a bit anxious about him.  Will keep you posted as to when he comes back.  In the meantime, here is a picture of the two of them:
Fingers crossed that Milo comes home soon, safely.

Bye for now, Kaye xoxox
