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.

Weekend Roundup....

This weekend I:
  1. Helped my niece choose a dress for her first formal
     2.  Excercised hard at Water Aerobics (I hadn't been for a week and boy, did I miss it!)

     3. Had a nice catch up with DS2 (she made a quick and easy chicken and corn soup for our lunch - yum!)

     4.  Caught up on lots of TV shows recorded on my Foxtel IQ and on lots of stitching whilst TraderVic, DS1, DD and DS2 were at the footy on Saturday night.

     5. Started packing for my business trip to Qld

     6.  Went to a great 60th birthday party for Sunday lunch (the catering was organic and sustainable = delicious) and caught up with lots of people

     7.  Had lots of great cuddling time with Furio - natch!

     8.  Made home-made hommus - yum! yum! yum!  

     9.  .... and, of course, squeezed in as much stitching as I could!!!!!!!

How was all of your weekends?

Now, of course, here are some pics....

Cuddles with Furio:

Milo guarding some more washing!!!!!

A new start for the Halloween Ornament SAL 2013.  This is actually next month's stitch - the choice being Mummies or tombstones.  (No, I haven't finished May's stitch yet - don't ask!!!)

The design is called Halloween Alley from "Angelic Stitches by Velda".  It is another freebie from here.  The fabbie is actually quite a deep denim blue but the flash on the camera has washed it out.  ...and yes, I am using WDW Fiesta for the moon again - just loving that floss!  Altogether I am just using colours that go with the fabbie rather than the suggested floss colours.

... and lastly, still working on Day 3 of Santa's 12 Days of Christmas which is my Sunday SAL with Debbie and Linda.

Well, have a good week everyone and don't forget that during the week I will be MIA, see this post here if you want to know more.
