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.

More Baking and HAED

Hi everyone,

First of all I wanted to share with you my latest baking effort.  On the weekend, we had some dear friends over for dinner and I baked this Apple-Raspberry Pie, I was particularly pleased with the lattice on the top.

The other item I wanted to share was Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED) which I have just discovered by reading some other cross-stitcher blogs - their designs are just amazing!  If you haven't heard of them, check them out at http://heavenandearthdesigns.com

I will post some more WIP and Kitten pics tomorrow.

Bye for now, Kaye xoxox

Raspberry pie and your looks delicious!

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

Why can't we have smelloblog or tasty-blogs so we can really appreciate the cooking?
I can follow you now, it seems it was a problem with Blogger (another one!) which can be worked round.
I love the HAEDs but I'm not a fan of that way of stitching. I prefer my Mirabilias! Good Luck if you do start one, I love to see someone else stitching them!

Thanks, Gracie, it was yummy!
@Jo, glad that you can now follow me! yes, smell or taste o vision would be great - then we could really share. Mirabilias are gorgeous, too, I think. But i am really tempted by some of these designs - especially the Hans Holbein portrait of Henry VIII.

If I do start one, you will certainly see it on my blog.

cheers, Kaye xoxox

@Gill, it is just warm and waiting for you - only a 18 hour or so flight (maybe more, I am not sure) from where you are to Melbourne, Australia. lol

Your pie looks scrummy! Aren't the HAED designs fantastic.. They are super addictive, although I am yet to tackle one myself I have a couple in my stash and drool over the website on a regular basis! One day....


Kaisievic said...

@Noni, thanks - the pie was delish! Yes, HAED is addictive - so many beautiful designs to choose from. Which one do you have in your stash?

Kaisievic said...

@Iowa gardening woman, why did you stop? I have checked out your blog and your photos are amazing!
