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.

Even more spoilt...



.... oh, that lovely bloggy friend, Chiara from The Grey Tail has done it again, as you might remember in my last post I showed you a cute cross stitch pattern postcard she sent me, but then yesterday this arrived from Italy:



Containing lots and lots of goodies:

Look at this gorgeous toile paper.


Inside the box was:

Chiara's favourite Italian cooking magazine, lucky for me TraderVic is fluent in Italian!


Some cat toys for Milo and Furio, a beautiful card (reminds me a bit of a Gorjuss design) and a cute little Xmas ornie which lights up.



A really super cute pincushion:


Some fruit tea which smells heavenly.



And a sweet kit of "Under the Pear Tree" from The Snowflower Diaries":







I am indeed blessed in my friends, thank you my dear Chiara.

hugs,
