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.

DAY 6 of 11 Days of Kaisievic's Birthday Giveaway

Well, here we are at Day 6 - only 5 more days of Giftgiving to go after this.....  (Update:  Sorry this is a little late but blogger was playing up last night! - Day 7 will be posted later today)

Don't forget to check out Days 1 to 5 Gifts on my earlier posts - you can enter for any or all of my Gifts (but you can only win one)

Here is my DAY 6 GIFT to you all......

It is an Alphabet Sampler Kit by a Dutch Designer - Thea Gouverneur - it contains the design, black Aida and the thread that you need to complete the design.  Rather stunning, don't you think?





Well, my birthday celebrations go on and on - isn't that fun?
Last Sunday night two of my dear friends (pic below) took me to the St Kilda Sea Baths where we had a great swim in the heated pools and then onto a yummy dinner at the restaurant next door where we had a great view of the setting sun over Port Philip Bay.
Whilst we were there this brightly lit vehicle came along and a Michael Jackson look alike did a dance for us.

Here is this month's TUSAL jar:  Filling up nicely!
