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.

Oh, how I love my postie....


.... because he brought me my three Scarlet Letter Kits for Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year SAL....





Now, it is decision time.... oh, which one do I choose to start on???

Well, I made my decision and started on The Faerie Queene, here are my progress pics:






At first I was really struggling with the 40 count linen but I have discovered if I stitch in the middle of the day I can see it really well.  Thank goodness it is holiday time!


hugs, 



P.S. Off to Mulwalah later today so I will be off air for a few days - looking forward to the R&R - no kids and no DFIL, just me and TraderVic and my DFs - Yay!

P.P.S.  Please check out Missy's scissors giveaway on her brand new blog.

Lovely projects. I especially like the colors in the 3rd project picture. Good luck stitching on 40ct. I would need a magnifying glass for that count!

Enjoy your time off.
