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.

Wonderful Wool, Wool, Wool ....

.... yes, I have gone Wool mad this winter!  Since rediscovering my passion for knitting - which, don't worry, is fitting in quite nicely with my cross stitching - I have been enjoying sourcing some wonderful yarn.

This pile of beauties is going to make three scarves and some wrist warmers.





Not all for me, a couple of the scarves will be for friends.  I can't wait to get started!

hugs,

Purples and light pinks, those would be my colours too. I hope that you will stay with stitchin g now that you have re-started knitting. Some of my stitching friends have given up on cross stitch and are selling their stitching stuff. Bad sign, huh?

Enjoy all your lovely yarn. I am going to be crocheting baby blankets this summer. I did one for a little girl. I need to do at least 3 blankets more for little boys.
