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.

Fabric, Fabric, Fabric .......

Well, I seem to have managed two Fabric buying expeditions this week!

The first was at Eureka Patchwork in Ballarat, Elizabeth could not have been more helpful. I ended up buying a range of fabbies but for some strange reason, most of them are cats! Now, I wonder why that is?  lol!

Some lovely Xmas FQs:


 Cat fabbie - there is a lot more in this range which I may just have to buy at some stage!



This is actually very black and just perfect for finishing off Halloween pieces!


I couldn't resist this pretty Japanese-inspired fabbie.


.... and I bought this one for Autumn and Halloween finishing.


.... and more cats....

The second expedition was with my dear friend, Anna, to L'uccello in the city.  Oh, my goodness! It must be one of Melbourne's best kept secrets!  Apparently it has been there four years and I had never heard of it - if you ever get the chance to go, please take it. She has the most divine fabrics and notions.  Heaven on a stick!

Even the bag she gives you your goodies in is divine!


... and look at the cute paper bags she uses...



... and here are my goodies....


I am going to make some covered measuring tapes, using the lilacy strawberry thief fabric from Liberty (top left corner).

Oh, everything was just too delicious, I also bought some Sajou stranded cotton which I am currently stitching a small project on - lovely to use.




Well, that is me for now, thanks for visiting,

hugs,

Lovely purchases, Kaye. L'uccello is just the most gorgeous places to visit. I took Noel there when we had a wedding in the city and even he was impressed!
