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.

Stash Empire Building

Well, there has been a bit of Stash Empire Building going on lately.  I have ordered lots of bits and pieces over the internet (boy, is that easy or what?) plus of course, I love to visit Wendy at my local, LNS, Lazy Daisy.  So, as I was in search of some Thread Heaven, which I had read about on Noni's blog, for when my threads get a bit frayed, I naturally had to buy some new LHN designs. I bought the Sheep Virtues 1 and 2, plus the button for Hope and Around the world in 80 days, plus some Cottage Garden Threads, I did also buy an Impie, Hattie and Bea Marking Pin Notebook to embellish with some stitching.












I am so bad (but loving it) as I have more than enough stash to last several lifetimes.

hugs,

P.S. I have just reached 300 followers - woo hoo!  Watch for a post soon about a 300 follower giveaway!
