Have a wonderful Christmas and a safe and happy New Year, to all of you, my dear friends.
I have to tell you all how much I appreciate all of your love, support and kind advice over this year and all of these past years of my blogging. The online blogging community is indeed full of wonderful warm and caring people.
You are all the most wonderful people I know.
On the stitchy front, last night I thought it was time to pick up this old WIP, Quaker Christmas II Songs of the Season, appropriate for Christmas Eve, I thought.
This is a Wednesday SAL I am doing with Amanda and Evalina, although it is a long time since I have picked this up or checked their progress on this design.
Anyway, it is early morning Christmas Day here in Oz and I am enjoying the pre-festivities quiet but soon my lovely family will all gather for our traditional breakfast of croissants, pastries and fresh berries. It will be a rather bittersweet Christmas as by mid-January DS1 and my brand new DIL will be moving to Roma, Queensland for DS1's new teaching job and my DD is moving out to a share house and lastly, DS2 will be moving to Sydney for two years to take join the Graduate programme at a large finance company. So for 2015 it will be just TraderVic, my FIL, me and one or maybe two cats (DD is not sure if she is going to take Milo with her to the share house or not).
So, lots of time to get my stitching my mojo into top speed, I hope!
Have a great day, everyone,
- 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.
