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.

Friday Night with Friends....

.... only a small amount of stitching to show for this FnwF.  I was very tired, as I have not been sleeping well and DD was over for the evening to watch the footy with her Dad, so I found it a bit hard to get into it all, really.

However, I did manage to get a few stitches into my new start for September's Hallowe'en Ornament SAL.

Mixture of CC and DMC floss

I have also been busy setting up my new SAL blogs

If you want to know anything more about any of these SAL blogs, the links are below:

Christmas Ornie SAL

Prairie Schooler SAL

Americana SAL

Tudor Tuesdays SAL 

Can I please ask, that if you do wish to join that you send me an email with the email address you wish to use to join the SAL and with your blog address, too, please.

Also, it is taking me a bit of time to get everything organised and to set everyone up on the various SALs, so please be patient if you have already requested to join one or two or all of them! I will get there eventually (however, if in a week's time you have not been joined up, please do not hesitate to email me again!)

Have a good week, everyone, 

lots of love,  

Just settling down to watch Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, while I set up the Tudor Tuesdays SAL blog.  Such fun!

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers... that's a blast from the past! I won't be able to get to sleep tonight for singing.... 'bless your beautiful hide' and when I do sleep I'll be dreaming of Howard Keel! And I thought I was over all that! lol
Well done for stitching when you're sleep deprived... not easy that. xxxx

A nice start on the September Halloween piece. No wonder that you were tired after setting up 4 (!) SAL blogs, it must be a lot of work to get everything organized. Thank you for all the work and I really love being in three of them :)
