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.

Summer Postcard Blog Hop

The utterly marvellous, wonderful stitcher and blog hop organiser extraordinaire, Jo from Serendipitous Stitching has done it again!

This time it is a Summer Postcard Blog Hop which is all about our beloved pets! Lovely!

My postcard is from Narita and I love her postcard because it is a gorgeous kitty cat!

This is what Narita had to say about her preference for dogs or cats:

Are you a Cat Person or a Dog Person?

I've always been a Cat Person.
I have plenty. Cats are soft and snuggly and independent.
And every one of them is different.

Lately though, I've started to question myself because now I have a DOG that I really really love.
Her name is Ruby and she's 10 months old. A red Doberman.
I used to be scared of Dobermans when I was younger.
I was QUITE SURPRISED when I  did several of those online quizzes about which breed would be the perfect breed for me and DOBERMAN kept coming up.
Go figure.

Well, I must confess, our girl is WONDERFUL. She's funny and sweet (loves to sit behind me in my computer chair--I'm sitting closer and closer to the edge...) and she likes to put her head on my shoulder-- her way of telling me she would like something to eat. She SUCH a character. And run. Does she EVER love to run. And can she EVER run FAST! 
Oh and did I mention that she sleeps with us (in the middle, of course) AND THE CATS?  Perfect. 
(Except for when she's like a toddler and stretches out her legs or kicks us in the night)

So now I'm starting to wonder...
Am I a Cat Person still? Or am I a Dog Person now?

You can check out all of the other Summer Postcards at Jo's blog, Serendipitous Stitching.  I wonder who will get my postcard?

I love that! So cute! I don't even know if I'm a cat or dog person. At the moment, I would say cat, but I grew up with dogs. So yeah. lol!

Cute Kitty!

Sandra die Puppenhexe said...

Eine zuckersüße Katzen-Karte. Ich bevorzuge auch Katzen, selbst habe ich zwei Nelson und Funny. Obwohl ich auch Hunde mag liebe ich doch die freiheitsliebenden und unabhängigeren Katzen deutlich mehr.
Wünsche dir ein schönes Wochenende
Liebe Grüße Sandra

Kate said...

Such a pretty kitty she stitched! I like her answers. It depends on the day whether I am a cat person or dog person, depending on whether my cats and dogs behave!

Bea said...

What a cute piece of stitching. Cats all the way for me.
