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.

Very quick update...

Just wanted to let you all know that I am still here!  I am so far behind on my blogging and commenting and everything as I have been starting work at 7.30 am so that I can get all my work done and still fit in dealing with hospital visits and numerous family phone calls..... so I am exhausted and feel so far behind on the important stuff - cross stitching and chatting with all of you guys!  I do miss you and I am trying to keep up!

Not sure how it will go with my Mum- her condition is chronic and life threatening - she is going home from hospital tomorrow, against her doctor's wishes but she has fretted so much about wanting to be home with Dad that they are sending her home.  I hope that she finds some ease soon.

On a brighter note, I have just been given a promotion at work (I have been working toward this promotion for a while now) - so that is good news.

I do want to thank you all again for your kind thoughts, wishes and prayers - you guys are awesome!


So much to tell you all and catch up (as usual) - Giveaway and Travelling Pattern winners to announce,  surprise gifts to show off and I am catching up with two fellow bloggers and stitchers for a quick lunch today (I will tell you who when I blog next) and some stitchy updates to come, too (my RR geisha now has some bling!)

But, I will leave you with some Furio pics.....

Where is he going?





Ah, there he is!


hugs,
