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.

Christmas is coming, 2016 .... Part Eight

Well, here we are and it is Christmas Eve, here in Eaglemont, Victoria, Australia.

Are you ready for the big day tomorrow?  I think that I just about am, although I do need to make one final trip to the supermarket - oh no!

Last night, we had a lovely Christmas celebration at my best friend, Kim's home.  I made a Christmas trifle for dessert.


Both families came together to celebrate our long friendship and the kids young adults relived childhood holidays by playing some very noisy games of 500.  It was lovely to see them reconnecting at this special time of year.

While this was happening, a few of us wandered down to a neighbour's house to see their Christmas display - it was amazing, to say the least.











... and then this morning I rose early to finish my heart quilt for my dear younger sister as her Christmas present.  It obviously has the Milo tick of approval now (Furio approved it in this post).



I used this gorgeous repeating sheep fabric on the back.

Isn't Christmastime so much fun?

Wow! Great light display. We have a somewhat nearby house that rivals that one. Beautiful quilt too, and love the look of the trifle!

So great to start this blog post with a picture of your trifle. It looks delicious to say the least :) A wonderful quilt that you made for your sister with great fabrics.

Fantastic lights display at your neighbour's house, what a great way to round the evening off.
The quilt you have made for your sister looks lovely, I am sure she appreciated all the work and the cat approval too.
