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.

IHSW update

Hello lovely bloggers,

I would like to welcome all my new followers.  I really love reading all of your comments and checking out your blogs, as well.  The online cross-stitching community is an awesome one.

Well, I can tell you - one upside of having a cold and not being able to do much all weekend is that I got lots of stitching done for IHSW. See my great progress on Isabella's Garden:

BEFORE IHSW

AS I WENT TO BED LAST NIGHT, TIRED BUT SATISFIED AFTER IHSW
Off to do some more stitching, whilst DH and I watch Underbelly:Razor - an Aussie TV programme all about the 1920/1930s razor gang wars in Darlinghurst, Sydney.  The rival gangs fought so viciously with cut throat razors that Darlinghurst became known as Razorhurst for a time.  The interesting thing is that the two gang leaders were women  - Kate Leigh who was a sly grog runner and Tilly Devine, who was referred to as a 'chaperone of magdalenes'.  Now, isn't that a lovely turn of phrase to describe a brothel madam?

That's all for me now,

Hugs, Kaye xoxox
