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.

AN EXTRAORDINARY GIFTED GORGEOUSNESS POST....

EXTRAORDINARY
on two levels.

Firstly, because I just received the MOST AMAZING GIFTS FROM MY SSF, KIM from Wisdom with Needle and Thread  and secondly, because this is my second GG post for September.

So, as you have probably seen on various blogs around blogland, dear Kim has been gifting 60 different bloggers with the most wonderful RAKs in celebration of her 60th birthday.

... and today, it was my turn to be the lucky recipient!

All I can say is WOW! WOW! WOW!

Dear Kim, you are the most extraordinarily generous person and the most amazingly talented artist.  Everyone, please have a look at the wonderful gifts she sent me.

A gorgeous Tudor doll, a beautiful Anne Boleyn thimble, a Tudor kit and postcard and some extra gold and silver beads plus four Tudor panels for making a quilt (below).


Here is Anne with her dear husband, Henry...

... and here is the beautiful Tudor Lady....

Thank you again, dear Kim, you are certainly my SSF!  


hugs and all my love,

Gorgeous gifts..the Tudor era is my favourite of past Kings and Queens.HenryVII is most fascinating to me ,a man,as history tells it,of so many contradictions who altered our religious history in perpetuity whose heir Elizabeth wrote her own chapter...and the clothes!! beautiful.

First These are the best gifts ever, what is so impressive is Kim is taking so much time on each gift to make sure it is perfect for each person. 2nd I love your August pie chart - shared in the previous post, I love looking at those, and wonder if I should track my time on each project, that is a huge undertaking for me - and I what a great birth sampler on the previous, previous blog post - LOVE IT.

Thank you for taking part in GG again this month! Deja vu or what?
But oh my gosh - Kim sent you one of her ladies? I was struck breathless from my porcelain, I'd have been out cold on the floor for one of her miniature dolls! These are just incredible, I know you are a very close friend to Kim and you deserve a beautiful gift.
