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.

Feeling much better and a shopping success...

Thank you yet again everyone for your support and kind wishes.  I am feeling so much better this evening as I relax with DH and watch "our" Lleyton playing really well against Raonic in the Australian Open.

The shopping expedition was very successful today - my DS and I managed Nonagerian wrangling around the huge Chadstone shopping mall most successfully.  It was decided that a new bed was not necessary after all - just some big European pillows and a new doona set to cover up the possibly "dangerous" corners of their existing bedhead.

This is the design which they chose - it is very nice and subtle colours - my mother really likes cream and gold (and there is little bit of pink in there for me - lol!)


More hot weather coming our way here in Melbourne:


At least the Australian Open is on - Hot Weather + Tennis = Lots of Stitching Time - Yay!


My Love and Friendship Exchange piece is coming along well this IHSW but you will have to wait until it has been sent and received to see a pic of it.

Last thing - check out the new Giveaways I have listed on my sidebar - a new one from Linsueray of a gorgeous bag and Nancy from the Victorian Motto Shoppe continues to be be oh so generous!

Update:  Lleyton looks like he is going to win the match - Come on, Lleyton!

Hugs,

Sounds like what I do on Sunday, except with football. (American football, that is!!) Lovely that you got some good stitchy time, Kaye, and glad that you've managed to survive the heat. We had an ice storm last night, so I'm wishing for some of that heat to come this way!! Hope I eventually get to see your pic!!
