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.

Oh, how nice it is to win a Giveaway... or two!

Well, my life is on the improve, for as well as receiving Cheryll's lovely PIF the other day, I also won and received two giveaway gifts.  Lucky me!

But first I must say a BIG thank you to all of you for the lovely supporting comments you have made - it has made me feel so much better. I love my stitchy friends in blogland. Now, on to sharing my great pressies:

The first was from the lovely Rahenna, when I won her "Oops" giveaway:

Isn't this such a pretty pattern?  I love Little House Needlework designs.

The second gift was some absolutely gorgeous metallic threads which I won in the lovely Karen's giveaway.  I especially love the purples.

Now, just to finish, I have my very late TUSAL jar - it is really starting to fill up.  So, I must be getting some stitching done. lol!

Thanks for visiting,


P.S. Don't forget to enter your name in my PIF if you are interested on this post.http://kittenstitching.blogspot.com.au/2012/08/on-happier-note.html
