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.

Margaret Sherry Christmas Ornament progress

Hello lovely bloggers,

Just a quick post for NaBloPoMo today, as I am still battling this sore throat and cough - I am so hoarse that I can barely speak!

Here is my progress on my Margaret Sherry freebie from World of Cross Stitching.  Now, I am must admit - sorry to all those Margaret Sherry fans out there - that I am not really enjoying this stitch.  I really don't like working on Aida anymore (that is the fabric which came with the freebie), the half stitches are a pain and I don't quite like the colours.  It is not quite my cup of tea, but I am determined to finish it as I want to put it in my stocking for the 2011 Stocking Giveaway.



Now, don't forget to comment on my 'Just Because' Giveaway, you can find it here.

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Hi Kaye, Ornament looks great. I can only see to stitch on 14ct aida. I like the stiffer fabric as I stitch in hand and its alot easier to hold.
Please give me another entry in your kit giveaway.

Let’s see, how do I start? You say that you can’t rely on Julie for a ride. Have you ever thought that you are your own person, not someone else’s responsibility? Why should she have to make up for your short comings? Why are you constantly trying to find someone to move close to, can you not take care of yourself? I hate to say this but, you act like a 16 year old (confused and misunderstood). Do you have kids, I do. It’s not that I don’t understand them, it’s that they don’t understand why I do the things I do. The things I do, I do to give them the chance for a better life. You complain so much about your mom; move out, I really feel for her. Here’s a tip (get a job, a car, and your own place); then you don’t have to DEPEND on other people, the People that you say let you down. You let yourself down. It sounds to me like you just wanted someone to mooch off of, Julie has her own life. Finally about killing yourself I hope you’re not that stupid, don’t stoop to that level. Do you believe in god? I hope you do, and that you realize that the rest of eternity would really suck in hell. If you don’t I’ll be praying for you. I want you to know I don’t hate you, and that I hope the best for you.
God Bless

P.S. MAYBE you should have some compassion for Julie, isn’t her mom in the hospital?
