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.

On a happier note ......

.... I have been lucky enough to receive a Pay It Forward (PIF) from Cheryll of Gone Stitchin'.

A PIF is when someone sends you an unexpected handmade gift.  Well,  I was lucky enough to be one of three people chosen by Cheryll and the other day I received this in the mail:







Aren't I lucky - I have been using all of the pieces like mad - so useful and so beautifully made.  I love the scissors - so me!

Now, part of the PIF scenario is that I in turn PIF  three of my wonderful bloggy, crafty friends.

So, if you would like to receive a handmade gift made by me, which will be sent sometime during the next twelve months, then please just leave me a comment on this post and I would love to make you something special.

Then, if you feel so inclined you can do the same for three more wonderful friends.

If I have more than three takers than I will pull names out of a hat - in the time-honoured way.



Lots of stitchy hugs,


P.S. I will keep the PIF open for at least a week.

Beautiful gifts! This is such a nice idea. I'm not sure I could keep my end of the deal with my wacky work schedule though.
Someday I would like to try it.

Ooh, that sounds lovely! The folding heart needlebook is so pretty, I've seen them before but... wow!

I love making and giving smalls and goodies, so I'd like to be considered. :)

This sounds like fun - I think even I can manage to get something done in 12 months! Count me in!
