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.

IHSW wrap up

As usual, I had quite a busy weekend (I did something very special on Sunday with my Dear Friend, Marie but I will tell you all about that in a post later in the week) but I did manage to be productive for IHSW this month as well.

On Saturday I framed "Friends" to give to my friend at work for her birthday today:



.... and now Medusa Lavender Fairy has all of her hair and if you look very closely you can see the start of her wing on the left hand side!



I hope that all of you had a successful IHSW - I look forward to checking out all of your blogs.

hugs,
