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.

Happy Daaaannnceeee!

I am so thrilled, Cornflower finally arrived at my LNS and I was able to finish the "L" and half an "I" on "Liberty Lane"  Yay and Double Yay!

I so loved stitching on this piece.  So much so, that I would love to share the joy.  So, if you would like a chance to stitch "Liberty Lane" by Country Cottage Needlework, just comment on this post telling me that you would like to stitch it and I will send one of you the pattern.  I will keep this open until next Friday, 13th June.  (You do not have to be a follower, although it would be nice if you became one if you are not already and I will post worldwide).

Anyway, do you want to see some pics?







hugs,

As I am travelling to the States in July for the first time in my life I'd love to stitch this one at some point! If you mean this to be a travelling pattern though please do not count me in as I don't have time to stitch it now. If you mean to send it to someone to keep it then I'd love it!ariadnesky(at)hotmail(dot)com AriadnefromGreece!
