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.

Look what arrived in the mail.....

.... a Travelling Pattern from Penny of Larkspur Lane, which originated with Sarah from Sarah in Stitches.  I will now stitch it and then who knows where it will go next?  Maybe to you?


The TP is Land of Liberty by Bent Creek and as well as the pattern, I was sent gifts which spelt out FLAG.












So, I received:

F = Fabbie         
L = Linen          
A = Accessoriex
G = Glass Ornie

So, I have spent three nights stitching on it so far, here are my progress pics:







It is coming up really well, I think. Thank you so much Penny (and Sarah), I am thrilled to be stitching this and Penny, I love all of my gifts.

So, if you think you might like to be the next lucky stitcher, to stitch this - keep an eye out, as soon as I am finished I will post about it and you will have a chance to enter.

Have a good day, everyone,

hugs,
