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.

Overwhelmed!

I must tell you how I have been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of one of my very best blogging buddies, Linda from Stitching with my furbabies.  We share a love of all things stitchy but particularly of LHN and Prairie Schooler designs and Bothy's Cut Thru designs - so Linda has kindly sent me lots of her finished patterns plus a number of other great goodies.  She has been so extremely generous that I do not know how to truly express my thanks!  I am planning to send her back a box of goodies, so hopefully I will be able to show my gratitude to her.

Would you like to see?

The Box arrives!


Pulling out some goodies...


Furio checking out "our" new lapghan.


Isn't this crocheted lapghan gorgeous?  A while back I won Linda's giveaway of a specially made lapghan - she has done a beautiful job.


She also crocheted a wash cloth...


.... amd a gorgeous scarf in deep pink, brown and cream.


Look at all these wonderful Cut Thru designs.....

.... and Linda kindly sent me 10 skeins of white and 10 skeins of black - always such useful colours to have.

Lots more to see here - lots of LHN designs plus a couple of bonus Lizzie Kate designs.


Take me out to the Ballgame and Robin Hood are my favourites, I think.



But then I cannot go past The Library either...



Then Linda kindly slipped in some fabric for me - you can never have enough spare in your stash, can you?

Then look at all these lovely Prairie Schooler designs...





How did Furio get into their designs?



 Furio felt the need to check out the huge pile of patterns....



Luckily, he approved!


Thank you again, Linda, you are a truly wonderful friend.  I am so lucky to have met you through the blogging world.  Love you, my dear.

hugs to you all,

Wonderful gift! That last pattern with the Furio lookalike would make a great ornament for Christmas (or all year round display) if you just stitch the kitty :) Might be a nice quick project to cheer you up!

Oh my giddy aunt!!! What an amazing package to receive from Linda! :)
Did you say that she had sent you some of the designs that she had already stitched? Wow! Just look at all those amazing designs :) The Cut Thru designs are gorgeous. Can't wait to see you start stitching them!
I love the crochet lapghan :) Good to note that Furio approved of the new additions to your stash pile.
Enjoy!!
