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.

Elizabeth I "Lizzie", some more WIP illustrations and reading update

Hi everyone,

I thought that I should update you on my progress with Elizabeth I or as I affectionately call her "Lizzie".  The red part of her dress is starting to take shape:



Here are some more of the illustrations of my WIPs:

European Bistro

Jewels of the Orient

Kitty Litter
Napping Kitten
Each of these projects are quite different (except for maybe the two kitten ones) but I love them all.  It will be exciting to see them take shape.  As you can see, I do adore large projects.

I also have some new kitten photos to show you, these are all of Furio napping.



Cute, isn't he?

Now, for a reading update.  I am up to Book 7 of the Riley Jenson Guardian series by Keri Arthur.  I really like this series not only because it is about vampires and werewolves (one of my other reading passions after historical and crime fiction) but because it is set in Melbourne.  It is really nice to be reading about your own city in a novel.

Well, this is a long post, so time to finish.  I am off on my conference travels again tomorrow - Perth this time, so I might not get much blogging done this week because I will be gone most of the week.

Bye for now, Kaye xoxox

Love the colors in Lizzie and am looking forward to seeing your other WIPs take shape. :

Furio is adorable! :D

Hmm... I think I might have a new series to check out, thanks to you. Since you like the paranormal genre, have you checked out Nalini Singh (http://www.nalinisingh.com/)? She's great!

Safe travels!

Hi Ladies, Thank you for your kind comments. I am just waiting for the taxi to the airport so I thought I would do some blogging. I have Furio "helping" me by lying over my arm purring while I type!
Joysz, I will check out Nalini Singh. I hope that I can get her books on my kindle.

Demeter, thx, they are lovely aren't they and Furio is a sweetie.

Have a good week,

cheers, Kaye
