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.

Just a little something to add to the empire... and another two great Giveaways

Well, while I am confessing all of my latest Stash Empire building - lol! - I saw this pattern on sale on the internet and just had to buy it to add to the Empire.  Do you like it?



Isn't she pretty?


... and she came with her own beads and gold thread.


Now I just have to find some perfect fabric for her,  oh dear, that may mean some more Stash Empire building! lol!



I must just tell you about Lija's 100 follower Giveaway, she is giving away a whole swag of lovely goodies to celebrate reaching the 100 followers milestone.  You can join in the fun here.  Closes, July 31st.



Also, the redoubtable Nancy of Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is having another floss giveaway, this time though, you nominate one of your stitchy friends to win the gift!  Neat idea, hey?

I entered and although it was a hard decision to make as to who to nominate, I decided upon my DF Linda from Stitching with my Furbabies, who also kindly nominated me to win - lovely!

You can enter Nancy's Giveaway, here.


hugs,
