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.

My birthday week.....

Hello lovely bloggers,

Well, this has been a busy week for me as it was my birthday on Tuesday (11th October).  But my birthday started early on Saturday with a birthday lunch with a GF whose birthday is the day after mine.

Then it continued on Tuesday with lots of phone calls, texts, email, Facebook and blogging Happy Birthday messages.  So, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone for your kind wishes.  We had a lovely family dinner at my favourite Spanish restaurant in Fitzroy. Then on Thursday there was a work birthday lunch at a great Japanese restaurant in Port Melbourne.

I was lucky enough to be given some lovely gifts, too.  So, thank you to everyone for the thoughtful presents.

Unfortunately now, I have come down with the cold/flu bug which has been going through the office.  It started off with a sore throat and runny nose but now I am all stuffed up and it has moved down to my chest and I can hardly breathe!  Yuk! Off to the doctor this afternoon to get some antibiotics!

Anyway I have managed to get some stitching done on Isabella's Garden and Christmas Eve Couriers this week and you can see my progress photos below. I have also included photos of my stitching chair  and, of course, a photo of my darling Furio.
Start of the week

Well, this week

Thank you for showing your stitching chair. You have actually given me a good idea. I see your lamp is sitting on top of something to give it more height. That is my exact problem. I like your style of lamp. I want something that will work but not be too big.
