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 and I have a new toy.....



Hello lovely bloggers, 

Well, after a great night's sleep and a really productive working at home day I am ready to post a proper post.  Blogger is finally picking up my IHSW progress pic - not sure what happened there, but here it is, La Belle Etoile SAL - I actually have done a little more on it last night - I have started the vine on the right hand side.  Sorry it is not ironed (me being lazy) and for some reason, every time I take a photo of this design the fabric colour comes out differently - Go figure!






Now, for the exciting news - a new camera!  I bought a Panasonic Lumix FH2 with two 8GB memory cards.  It is a really pretty blue colour - I can't wait to take some photos with it.  But, here are a couple of pics of it taken with my old camera:


Furio would like to take some pretty pictures, too.

Off to stitch and blog watch now, have a good evening/day everyone.

Hugs, Kaye xoxox
