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.

Crazy January Cross Stitch Challenge 2014 update.......

Day 4 Start: Ravenmoon Hall by Praiseworthy Stitches. Stitched on 32ct Haunted Linen using suggested threads.



Day 5 Start: "Home at Last" by JBW Designs.  This will be finished as a small pail.


Day 6 Start: Merry Cat'smas by Terri Carl.  Stitched on 29ct Charles Craft white linen, using various floss from my stash.

I am really having fun with this.  Off to stitch some more on Day 7's start and a bit on my Joan Elliott RR piece.

hugs,
