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.

More prayers please

Dear lovely, fellow stitchers and bloggers,


Sorry, I won't be in blogland much for a few days.  My Dear Mother has been taken to hospital for the fourth time this year.  She is very ill, my Dear Father is currently staying with me and we are spending long days at the hospital.

Once again, if I could ask for your prayers and good wishes.  My Dear Father is devastated - they have been married 67 years and if she survives this weekend they will still be parted as the doctors have told him that he can no longer care for her and that she will have to go into a high care nursing home.  I do not know how he is going to cope without her whatever happens.

Talk to you all soon,

love Kaye

My parents were married 64 years when my dad passed. I've seen the elders in my family lose a life spouse and it's heartbreaking. I wish him and your family comfort and peace.

Embracing you and yours in prayer
that peace and courage sustain you through this difficult time.
Hold on to each other and make each moment count....67 years together builds a strong foundation and although your Dad might feel lost, he has those years
of good memories to carry him through.
Blessings, Kaye
