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.

IHSW update...... and a Happy Dance

For IHSW I worked on a few different stitchery projects:


  1. Some Christmas projects 
     2. A new start - aaaaghhh! I must be mad! -  Another HAED start:"All the world's a stage"

     3. Day 1 of Santa's 12 Days of Christmas (my SAL with Linda and Debbie) - FINISHED! and

     4. Day 2 of Santa's 12 Days of Christmas  - progress made!

Here are some pics:










I hope that everyone has had a productive IHSW, too.
