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.

Trixie von Purl......

.... this post is for my knitting friends out there...

The other day I stumbled across Trixie von Purl ... one of my colleagues at work had been given one of her knitting books for Christmas - "Pride and Preju Knits". It is full of gorgeous Jane Austen figures, scenes and objects to knit.


BUT, this author also has a slightly naughty side, as her earlier knitting book is called "Knit your own Kama Sutra" - what a hoot!



If you want to learn more about Trixie (she is the alter ego of Geraldine Warner), you can read all about her in her blog post here.

Have a great weekend, 

hugs, 

P.S. Last night was Friday Frolics, so if you want to see what I and all the other Frolickers have been up to,  you can check the SAL blog out here.

What fun! The church did knitted bible stories last year as a display. I don't think they'd go for the second book at all!

Great little clips - and very innovative (??) knitting ideas.

So much fun to view the videos with the charming knitted people. And very interesting to get to know their creator's blog. Thanks for sharing.
