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 - It must be a record!

I think it must be a record - I have two, count them, two Happy Dances today.  In one day, I stitched these two sweet kittycat designs, which was a freebie from The Sampler Girl. (Thank you).  I made one for Furio and one for Milo.  I have tried to make the stitcheries look like each of my kittycats.  What do you think?

Hugs, Kaye xoxox
