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.

I am absolutely delighted with both of these.  I am loving the mag this year.

Up next for Christmas stitching, may possibly by these cute Sue Willis designs.  Don't you think that they are cute?



Now, I must say hello and welcome to my new followers, how lovely to have you come and visit with me.  I notice that I now have over 400 followers, so there may be a giveaway to celebrate coming up.  We shall see, I am so busy at the moment that I am struggling to keep up with my blog reading and emails.  So, I do apologise if I have not visited you for a while or not replied to your emails.

Love to you all,

hugs,
