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.

Two great giveaways and another quick stitchy update.....

Hi lovely bloggers,

Check out these two great giveaways:

Heather of Heather's Stitching Story is having a Blogaversary Giveaway - look at all of the great pressies.  You can enter here.

... and Nancy from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is also having a great giveaway of a sewing necessaire (this pic shows red and cream but there are several colourways to choose from. You can enter here.



......Oh dear, my blogging is getting so far behind at the moment.  I still have lots of Balllarat photos to show you but that will still have to be for another post.  For now, here is my progress on Mary Wigham and on another little Primitive Hare stitch I am doing as a Christmas stitch.


Before the weeekend:

Plus, I have stitched lots more of Ladybird Fairy but that will be for another post, too.

Blessings on you all,
