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.

Some Great Giveaways and the Brownlow Medal Tally

Hello lovely bloggers,

First of all I hope that your week has started well after a great stitching weekend.

Second, I would like to tell you about some great giveaways:


  1. Barbara at "To Stitch or not to Stitch" is having a wonderful Halloween Giveaway.  You can check it out here.  You have until next Friday night to enter - she is giving away some gorgeous Halloweeny items - so go check it out.
     
      2. Debbie of Debbie's cross stitch is having a giveaway of a $10 voucher at 123 stitch to celebrate her first blogaversary.  Congratulations, Debbie on a year of blogging.


      3. Cyndy at Crafty Stitchers is also having a Halloween Giveaway of a very cute Raggedy Bagholder.


Lastly, I would like to share with you that I am blogging whilst watching the Brownlow Medal Count with my family.  This is basically the best player award for the great game of Aussie Rules football.  Now, DH loves watching the count - where every point awarded is read out - it takes all night!  I much prefer to watch the Blue Carpet where we get to ooh and ahh over the WAGS (Wives and Girlfriends) gowns.  Now, somehow, many footballers seem to go out with models!  Makes them look really good on the blue carpet.

Anyway, going to check out some more blogs and will post my weekend round up and stitching progress tomorrow,

Bye for now,

love Kaye xoxox
