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.

Quick Stitchy update....

..... So sorry, no time this morning to catch you up on my lovely long weekend in Ballarat but I thought that I should prove that I have been stitching!


First up is Ladybird Fairy for my JE RR, now you might remember all of the trouble I had with Medusa  
Lavender Fairy last round?  Well, Ladybird Fairy is stitching up a dream!  This is less than a week's stitching with no stitching done over the long weekend as I was away!


This is my current train/car stitching - Silent Night, Holy Night by CCN.  This one is coming along quickly, too.

I also stitched on Mary Wigham over the weekend but I have no pics as of yet - I will give you an update on her soon.

Have a great day,

Blessings,

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Isn't it funny how some projects just flow away from your needle and others have to be prised out kicking and screaming?!!

I love Ladybird, can't wait to see her done.
