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.

Spooky! (and IHSW and TUSAL, too)

I must start by wishing a big Aussie G'Day to all my new followers - I have noticed a few new names added to my Google Connect.  Welcome, welcome, welcome!

I am so excited, despite having actually planned to stitch other projects, somehow SPOOKY by Lizzie Kate turned up in my hands and here it is all finished!



 This is what I had planned to work on:  Part II of A Very Scary SAL, also Lizzie Kate




.... and here is my TUSAL for this month:

 .... and, of course, a Furio pic - here is sitting snoozing on the top of my stitching chair - lucky for me, he lets me share it with him!

I hope that you all had a great IHSW, too.

hugs,

Spooky is a cute finish and the SAL is looking good. You're ahead of me by quite a bit!

Furio looks quite content with life. Isn't it nice that our cats are so generous with their space? LOL
