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.

Halloween Ornament SAL update

.... I have been having so much fun stitching this free design from Barbara Ana (just scroll down the page a little) for my May Halloween Ornament for the SAL.  Actually this website - Cyberstitch.com/free_patterns -  is a virtual cornucopia of wonderful free designs by some wonderful designers - well worth checking out.

I now have almost two houses and a pussy cat (looking a bit like a scaredy cat).  The moon is about halfway done now, too.




hugs,

I love Barbara Ana's designs, doing a SAL on her latest design in the July issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework Magazine on my blog now.

Oh, what fiber did you use for the moon. It's awesome. I am gonna have to print up this pattern and stitch it, too.

Wishing you a lovely day and weekend, too.
