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.

A very Old Happy Dance and check out this Giveaway...

I was going through my linen cupboard the other day and way down the bottom of the pile I found this very old stitched hand towel (sorry yet again about the lack of ironing).

One end has Scottie dogs on it and the other end hearts.  Guess when I stitched this forgotten beauty?




That's right - in 1991.  This hand towel has done a lot of service in 22 years!





Also, I just wanted to tell you that McKenna of Chic Crafting is giving away another cute little octopus, her giveaway closes March 31st.

Love to you all, hugs,
