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.

Lizzie is crowned and ...

Measure of a Year is back from the framers - Happy Dances all around.

First up, here is Measure of a Year all framed - it is actually lying on the bed in this pic as I have not yet decided where to hang it.


... and here is Lizzie in all her glory!

 Happy Dance all over the house!

     Isn't she gorgeous?  I am so thrilled with her.






The Queen's Sampler
Plum Street Samplers
28 ct Flax linen
Suggested DMC floss

She has been taken straight to the framers, so there will be one last update pic in a couple of weeks.

Hmm!  What Tudor design to concentrate on next for my Tudor Tuesday SAL is my big question now.

Off to bookclub shortly - where Emma Viskic , the author of this month's novel, Resurrection Bay, is coming along to talk to us - how cool is that?


Have a good evening, everyone, 

hugs, 

By the way, I really enjoyed the novel, so I am really looking forward to meeting the author.

Measure of the Year looks gorgeous in its frame. And wow, the Queen is finished. Must give you a great feeling.
Having the author of one of your book club books speak to you must be very exciting. Enjoy!

Well chosen on the framing for Year - it looks wonderful. And YAY for another finish! She looks beautiful and I can't wait to see what comes next.

Kaye, you have a beautiful 4 seasons and great Tudor Elizabeth!

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

Two great pieces there. I'm glad that Elizabeth has gone straight to the framers. You don't want to keep a Queen waiting!
It's always exciting to meet an author. We mainly have local one but Erica James is coming to Norwich next month.
