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 9 - an ongoing post today

.... today's post will be an ongoing one, I think.  It is early morning here on what is promising to be a very hot day (40 degrees celsius) and I am just doing some quick blogging before I go on my early morning walk. Anyway, I have just found this great giveaway from Sarah at Craftymoo - she is de-stashing and has some wonderful items in her giveaway, you can check it out here.

Well, off to walk now, more later today .....

... home again, just watching Furio chasing a fly around the house - who needs Mortein when you have the might hunter Furio? ... and doing some blog stalking reading.

Someone asked me to show my progress on my Mary Wigham Sampler, so here goes:






... so, off to cut my fabric for UCJC Day Two's project... will show you a project pic from yesterday's project a bit later and then my DF, Marie is taking me out for a Japanese lunch as a very belated birthday present.


P.S. Don't forget to check out my two giveaways listed on my sidebar...

Oh, I love the colours you have chosen for the Mary Wigham Sampler. Perhaps this year I will start it myself, as I have always wanted to. Look forward to seeing your progress.

Happy Stitching
