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.

A Happy Dance and look what the postie brought......

I had a very Happy Dance last night as I finished stitching something for an exchange (just need to Finish it now) but all I can show you are little snippets - don't want to give away the surprise now do I?




... and the post bought me two great parcels this week....

The first one is a cute mug rug from the lovely Gaynor Ann from Stitchers Anon Cross stitch.   Just perfect for a coffee lover like me, she also sent a postcard and some yummy chocolate!
Thank you so much, Gaynor Ann - the mug rug is already on my desk at work.



Then,  I was lucky enough to win a giveaway hosted by Heather of Stitching Lotus.  She gifted me a very sweet LHN design (like so many others I adore LHN designs) plus some needles and some gorgeous threads - the colours are delicious!







Thank you so much, Heather.

I love my bloggy friends, don't you?

hugs,

Congratulations on the win and the lovely mug rug.
The finish looks interesting but I'm rubbish at playing Guess the Chart so I won't try!
