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 dangerous precedent.....

Oh dear,  I have just discovered Patternmart - a site with thousands of cross stitch patterns you can buy via PayPal and instantly download.

So, as I sit here eating my early breakfast before heading off to the city to catch the Yarra Valley Winery tour bus with my friends and colleagues (on which I am sure to buy some delicious wine) what do I do?  Buy some Pineberry Lane patterns, of course!

A few clicks and these lovelies were safely downloaded and saved to my trusty Mac....


"Hurrah"

"Bringing home the tree"

"Fancey Blackett - Shoo"


Wendy has so many gorgeous patterns, so I can see that this is going to be very dangerous indeed!

Off to drink have fun and frolic in the vines, tell you all about it tomorrow,

hugs,
