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.

Summertime .....

.... and the living is easy....



This is one of my favourite songs and seemed appropriate for Jo's



However, as I live DownUnder and we are a rather contrary bunch down here, we are actually in the throes of deep Winter.

 So, instead of Summertime stitching, I give you instead my Happy Dance of my Magnificent Obsession....   

Winter Wonderland     (Well, it is a Shoe Horn Party! - lol)






I have had fun playing with some online photo editing programmes, the first photo has been created using Picmonkey and the second one using Fotojet.

... and here are the standard pics...






.... and just for dear Jo, in honour of The Tenuous Shoe Horn Blog Party - My Summer Holiday, today I started this design:


Have a fun Summer Blog Party everyone, 

hugs,
