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.

Jo's 500 Follower Blog Hop

Our darling Jo from Serendipitous Stitching has come up with a clever idea to celebrate achieving 500 followers.  Those of us who wished to take part have been assigned a fellow blogger to write a post about.  How cool is that?

I was given Rosey from Ishkabibble.

Rosey has a very sweet blog where she displays her equally sweet stitching.  She does not have a huge number of followers, yet, so please pop over to her blog and become one if you have not already done so.

As part of the Blog Hop we were also asked to choose a photo of a stitched piece which we thought suits our person.  I chose this very early stitched piece of mine, a cross stitched doll, which I made for my goddaughter many years ago.


Well, I hope that you have enjoyed this blog hop, don't forget to have a look out for all of the other Jo's 500 Follower Blog Hops happening around the blogosphere.

And, of course, congratulations to our dear Jo. 500 followers, how awesome!

hugs,

P.S. Don't forget to check out my Favourite Films of All Time Giveaway, here.
