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.

PIF news....

..... .... and the three stitchers chosen to be a recipient of some handmade gifts by me sometime within the next 12 months are:

  • Rahenna

  • Emma
  • Mouse
Congratulation, Ladies, please send me your snailmail addresses and then watch out for the postman for the next 12 months!  Because you never know when he will bring you a surprise!


Please remember that part of the PIF deal is that you in turn need to Pay It Forward to three other stitchers in the future.
I have a stitchy update, too:
Ta Da....Lizzie Kate Mystery SAL, Part One finished!!








See those three pesky acorns in the bottom left - the Frog King visited twice before I got these done right!

This evening, TraderVic and I went to see a fabulous Aussie movie "The Sapphires".  It was really great and is based upon a true story, apparently at Cannes earlier this year it had a ten minute standing ovation when it was shown.  It is the story of four Aboriginal girls from a mission in the Outback who in 1968 performed as a girl group in Vietnam for the troops.  Here is a link to an article about it from The Age newspaper and below is a video clip showing a trailer from the film. If you get the chance to see it, I can highly recommend it.



Have a good week, everyone,



hugs,
