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.

So close to a finish now ......

Well, I had to shift my Tudor Tuesday Stitching to Wednesday evening (due to social commitments, which you can read all about here) but that was okay as I managed to stitch heaps even while beating DD hands down in Scrabble!

I am thinking that maybe one more Tuesday may even do it! Yay!

hugs,  

P.S. I got up this morning in the dark and put my shoes on.  When I got downstairs to the kitchen, look what I found:


LOL!

Lovely work on Elizabeth and that's hilarious! I keep my shoes downstairs and I will admit to having 2 pairs of the same shoe in different colours as well.

Probably a totally ignorant question, but what is the "R" for after "Elizabeth"?

Hah, everything is grey in the dark! You're safe! :D

Elizabeth looks great. Can't imagine wearing dresses like that. Or getting through doors in dresses like that.

Sarah in Stitches said...

LOL! That's funny. I got completely dressed a week ago and had left my apartment when I realized I was still in my house slippers! Lovely stitching progress :D

Penny said...

Pretty stitching! Your shoes may not have matched but they sure look comfortable. It might have been interesting just to go with the combination and see if anyone would notice. :)

Hi Kaye! I've finally managed to find a way to read your blog and I was rewarded with a good giggle:)) Your stitching looks great!

Brigitte said...

LOL, it must have been veeeery dark, Kaye ;)
Oh my, Elizabeth is nearly done. I think we will soon see her finished here.

The "R" stands for "Regina" in this case ("Rex" is a male royal)
