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.

The Alphabet Club - Saturday Detention for E and F.....

Well, as usual, I am a little late for my Saturday detention - I missed both December and January!  Aaaggh!

So, I have two letters to make up for, right now!

For those of you who do not know what I am talking about:

What is the Alphabet Club, I hear you ask?  Well, it is the brainchild of Chiara from The Grey Tail and Jo from Serendipitous Stitching and is loosely based on the premise of the movie "The Breakfast Club" - you can see the button for The Alphabet Club on my right sidebar.

On the first Saturday of each month, members of the club have "detention" and have to post about something that will enlighten others about their culture (as blogland is so diverse).  Of course, there should be something stitchy in there, if possible. Each month will be a different letter of the alphabet - hence the club's name - and, of course, we started with "A" and now we are up to "F"

You can see the link up of the posts of the other detainees for this month, here.

Now, I am going to be sneaky this month as my E and F make one post as they stand for ....

Errol Flynn 


Such a handsome man (and born in Tasmania) and a great Hollywood swashbuckling hero. Who could forget him as Robin Hood!



One of the many great Aussie imports into Hollywood.

So, that is all from me, 

hugs,

Sneaky! :D
But I honestly didn't know he was an Aussie! So I've learnt something :)

Sneaky but clever. Loved him as Robin Hood, but I think Captain Blood ranks just a titch higher.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Haha, great way to cover both letters! Fantastic choice of clip too.

That's such a clever double-post, Kaye. And I'm old enough ;)) to know Errol Flynn from many of his movies. A very handsome actor indeed.
