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.

Ballarat the Beautiful II: The Quilt Show

.... here is the next instalment of my Ballarat getaway.  On the Sunday afternoon, the fun continued.  My aunt and I went to see the Ballarat Quilters Quilt show.  So many gorgeous quilts on display. These are some of my favourites:





 Here is my aunt admiring yet another amazing quilt.











I hope that you enjoyed seeing them.

Blessing on you all, 
P.S. In the time that has past since I drafted this post and saved it for posting today, my DFIl has been hospitalised with a chest infection. It would mean so much to me if you could send your prayers and good wishes his way (it worked for my mother who, despite being at death's door six weeks ago, is still with us. 
Thank you and hugs, Kaye
