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.

Lots to report and a Happy Dance (Take 2)

Hello lovely bloggers,

Well, I have lots to report this post.

My Happy Dance (Take 2) is because I picked up Baboushka from the framers the other day.  Here she is, I am really pleased with her (please ignore the shadow on the right hand side.  I have decided to give her to my Dear Sister for Christmas.  The green matt is sueded - it looks really great in the flesh, so to speak.


I also have a couple of progress pics:





Some progress on Isabella's Garden

September TUSAL - the purple on the top is from Isabella's garden
 A new start:  Mirabilia's Christmas Courier by Nora Corbett,  now I did not buy the pattern all chewed up like this - that was my naughty cats - Milo and Furio.  I cam home from work one day and found the outer envelope and one page of the chart (luckily it was a photocopy) all shredded up!



And here are the two of them - looking like butter wouldn't melt in their mouths!


First progress on Christmas Couriers - the greens look really vibrant in real life.
 Lastly, I wanted to show off my new doona cover set - pretty isn't it?

Well, that's all for me now - off to do some stitching.

Bye for now,

Love, Kaye xoxox

P.S. I also meant to tell you about the storm that we had in Melbourne yesterday - a month's rain in one day!  The most rain in September since 1955.  All of the planes were grounded because of the thunder, lightning, rain and hail.  It is now really cold - only 9 degrees celsius - Brrrrr!!!!

Congratulations on Babushka, she is looking gorgeous on her frame, your sister will love it.
From the piture you sent of your two kitties I would never thought they would be naughty enough to chew your charts, at least they didn't do any real damage and they let you start such a lovely project :)

Hi Kaye! I can't believe how naughty your beautiful babies have been eating your pattern! What a gorgeous design to stitch - look forward to seeing another update soon :o)

I saw on the news about Melbourne's storm the other day! Fingers crossed you don't get too many more of those too close together!
