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.

OH NO! There is ....


MORE BAH HUMBUG...



Yep, Sue Hillis is feeding my addiction with a second book of  those quirky Bah Humbug designs.

So, of course I had to buy it!  Here  is my fun fabbie and my floss toss.



... and here is my first one:  String of Lights on the delightful "Waterfall Blue" evenweave fabric (sorry the colour leached out of this photo).



I am so hooked on these designs - they are just so much fun to stitch!

Well, off to work in a minute and so train stitching, here I come.  After work it is shopping for shoes to go with my dress for the wedding and then dinner at Pelligrini's in the city and off to see "Once".

Big day ahead!

You all have a great one,

hugs,

Love the start on your ornie! Have fun in the city and Once. Once is a great production and I really enjoyed watching it earlier this year. If you get there early, they invite patrons to go on stage and mingle with the cast before the show. At least they did that when I saw it here in San Francisco.
