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.

Quick update....

... and a Happy Dance before I go to work.

Here is my progress on Day 10 of Prairie Schooler's Santa's 12 Days of Christmas, the Sunday SAL I do with my dear friend, Linda, every Sunday.


My aim is to get this finished next Sunday, 31st so I can reach my goal of finishing it by end May.

Next up is a Happy Dance, a knitting one - some wrist warmers.



Just perfect for these cold mornings waiting for a train to work.

Well, not much else to report - I have been unwell all week (fluey, gastric buggy thing) and so off work for most of last week and so we had a quiet weekend.  Still not feeling 100% but I had better go back to work today or they won't remember who I am! lol!

Have a good week, everyone, hugs

Both projects look great. I had never heard of wrist warmers but they do look like they would keep you nice and warm. Sure hope you feel much better soon.

Hope you feel 100% very soon. Isn't it a nuisance having to be an adult and take care of our responsibilities? Great progress on Santa and love the wrist warmers. I hadn't heard of them either, but what a great idea!

Lovely leaping Lord!

My sister wears wrist warmers a lot but I never have. I do have some furry wrist covers which fill the gap between gloves and coat cuffs.

Renee said...

Great progress on your Santa! And the wrist warmers look so cozy!

What a sweet and happy santa! Those gloves are just what you need on these cold mornings. They have a beautiful textural pattern to them.
