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.

White Night...Holiday Post #3 - Singapore #3 + Awesome Giveaway.

Oh my goodness!  I am onto my third post about my holiday and I am only on Day 2 - not sure any of us will last the distance as we were away for a month!!!!! lol!

My second visit to Raffles was for the Welcome Dinner for the conference delegates and their partners. We had all been told to wear white and what a sight that was - 500 or 600 people partying together at the beautiful white Raffles all wearing white.  It was just like being in a movie, really!

Being greeted by the doorman.


Having a Singapore Sling.


The party....






These girls were helping hand out the dress ups for the fun photo (next pic). Aren't they beautiful?



Having fun playing dress ups!



It was a memorable night, I can tell you.

Now, just to finish, I am blazing along with Liberty Lane!






Lastly, the wonderful Nancy at the Victorian Motto Shoppe is having a customised Sampler Chart Giveaway, you can enter here.  Tell Nancy I sent you, please.


hugs,
