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.

Look what else came in the mail....


Another dear bloggy friend, Valerie from Fee le point has sent me another LHN design in the mail - this one is Strawberry House.  I am going to send her Strawberries when I finish with it - which will be soon.

She also sent me some lovely spotty red fabbie and some cute little buttons - lovely!




Of course, I couldn't wait to start it (even though I have so much other stitching to do)...


Doesn't look like much yet but it will get there!

Take care everyone,

hugs,

What a very pretty design and you are just coming into spring so very appropriate. I always think of strawberries in late spring or early summer depending on the local season. Enjoy!
