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.

I had my bi-annual dental check up and clean today and as I was wandering back to my car I happened to wander into this very cute shop full of lots of little crafty gifts and this is what I found:

Some skeins of hand-dyed thread @ $2 a skein - a real bargain in Australia.  Usually I would pay about $6 or $7 per skein
There were 51 skeins on a ring and I bought them all!  Aren't the colours gorgeous?


I also bought these very cute button @5 for $2
Not sure what I will use them for yet but I am sure that I will think of something special.

This next pic is of my latest work toy.  It is a tablet which allows me to write on page proofs by hand but electronically.  It is really cool to use.


 ...and just to finish a couple of pics of my darling Furio helping me blog tonight:



Also,don;t forget to check out the fantastic giveaways on the sidebar of my blog.  Some great prizes to be won.

Merry Christmas everyone,

Kaye xoxox

How nice, to go to the dentist and come home with cross-stitch goodies! I'm sure you will enjoy using the floss and find something cute that you can make even cuter with those adorable buttons!
