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.

A couple of progress pics.....

I am progressing nicely with both my JE RR Lavender Fairy and with my train stitching, Bienvenue.

She looks a bit like a Japanese Noh mask at the moment - lol!


I know that I said I was really unsure about my colour choices when I started my train piece but as it is taking shape I am really liking the way it looks.


hugs,

Your train WIP is looking great. Those colours work well together. I have to say Lavender Fairy is my favourite out of the Garden Fairy series. I love Lavender :) xxx
