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.

12 Days of Christmas in Blogland - Day 6 - Stash Empire Building

Not a lot of stitching done so far today but I have had a good day:


  1. Had a sleep in
  2. Organised our visas for our March U.S. trip
  3. Had a very nice lunch out with friends
  4. Watched some Dr Who episodes in the afternoon
  5. Spent a couple of hours blogging and doing some online ordering of cross stitch stash (will post about it when they arrive)
  6. Finalised my UCJC projects
  7. Went for a swim and swam my 20 laps
  8. Cooked a yummy dinner - Linguini with Veal Stroganoff
  9. Now, I am just chilling out with DH and writing this post ... then I think that I will do some stitching on Mary Wigham - I haven't done any on her for a while
  10. But before I go, I must show you my latest stash items which arrived from 123 stitch yesterday:










I am doing a SAL with the 6 Fat men in March - so I am getting organised and the others I chose just because I like them,

Well, off to stitch now.

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Six Fat Men look so cute! You will have fun stitching them. I looked at your UCJC list and it's a great idea to list them in size. Happy Stitching in 2012!
