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.

Thought I would show a quilted bag which I mad a few years ago on this post. I hope that you like it.  I am very fond of it.

The Front

The Back

Next I have some more Kitten photos  If you look carefully at the rumpled quilt underneath the kittens you can see it is a flannel quilt which I made several years back.





Well, planning to do some more stitching on Holbein's Henry.

Bye for now, Kaye
