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.

Sanctuary Cove


Well, I am back safe and sound from Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast, Queensland.  The conference was pretty full on but it was in beautiful surroundings.  I took some pics to share with you all:






These next few are of my room, which I had all to myself!





More photos of the lush gardens:







The Lagoon pool which I swam in early both mornings that I was there - magical!





On the Monday night, we had a Gala Dinner which is always fancy dress.  This year's theme was British Musicians/Musicals.  Can you guess what I am?  Hint:  Think Gilbert and Sullivan and I had forgotten to pack my pole.
These next photos are of some of my colleagues all dressed up.





Now, I must tell you that I have been busy fulfilling some of my stitching commitments.

I have posted my Love and Friendship Exchange package to the U.S.A.

I have posted my 12 Days of Christmas in Blogland to:  Jo, Veronica, Linda and Kim. So, ladies please watch the post and let me know when your gifts arrive.

I am still waiting to get an email from my winner of the Ladies who Lunch mini competition, Kate.  Kate, I have emailed you but if you read this please let me know your address.

Well, it is back to Cinderella for me.  I will post a pic of my progress tomorrow.

Hugs,
