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.

IHSW_October....

... well, for IHSW, I thought that I should continue on with my PS 12 Days of Santa as I am finally getting so near to finishing the series.  Yay!

So, here is Day 12 so far....



... here are some of the lovely roses from my garden (I had a play around with the special effects on the Aviary app on my iphone to get the photo looking like this).


I hope that you all had a great IHSW, 

I don't think that dear Joyce has put up the October link yet but check out her blog anyway, 


hugs,

Great progress on your last day of the series. Doesn't it feel great to get so near to the total finish?
One of our rose bushes still has lots of roses an rose buds but I doubt that they will get to bloom. When I went out into the garden this morning it was so very cold and I saw that all the meadows behind the house were frosted and so was my rose bush. It's just a pity ...

You're doing so well on this series, Kaye! Love seeing your roses--everything here is brown and dreary after a hard frost Sunday night!
