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.

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas...

.... in July.

I was lucky enough to have Tracee from Quiltkittyloveslife as my "Santa" in Cheryll's Xmas in July swap.  I was so blown away by the wonderful, wonderful Christmas gifts I received:

Here are the parcels, all waiting to be unwrapped.

Yummy chocolates from Darrell Lea (definitely for sharing, I think)

What can be inside this starry bag?

A starry swag of course!

Oooh, chocolate bon bons within a stitched bon bon.  I stitched one of these bon bons for the Santa Sack swap last year so I am very happy to receive this gorgeous one from Tracee.

Lastly, but definitely not least, a table runner but not just any old table runner - one which has my two kitty cats - Milo and Furio - stitched on it.  Thank you so much, Tracee, such a thoughtful gift.  I and the furbabies love it!

Tracee was bemoaning her QAYG technique but it looks perfect to me.

Sweet Robin fabric.

I feel so lucky and blessed.

Thank you so much, Tracee.
