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.

The Silver Lining 2....

The second silver lining of being sick for over a week was that I got lots of stitching done!

And of course, I finished this for my GIVEAWAY:

Now, please don't forget to enter my 1st BLOGOVERSARY GIVEAWAY on this POST HERE.

Off to do some stitching now,

Edit:  I managed to get Blogger to allow me to post my most recent photo of Cindy's progress, as you can see I have started the castle in the background.

PS Sorry, I have not sent the chart yet. My hands and now my arm are getting itchy bad again. I promise, I won't forget.

I like your silver lining of being sick. Your WIPs look great. Well done ;0). I hope your kitties kept you nice & warm while you weren't feeling well! Hugs xx

Kaisievic said...

yes, they did. I have perfected the art of stitching with Furio on my knee. I have trained him not to play with the thread as I pull it through the fabric.

Linda said...
