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.

It's starting to feel a bit like Christmas....

Hello lovely bloggers,

Well, I have taken the jump and decided to do NaBloPoMo and blog every day for November!  Not sure if I can do it or if you will get too bored - lol! So, with this post I will be 3 for 3.

Today, I couldn't resist, I just had to buy some fruit mince pies - the first I have seen this year.  They are one of my favourite Christmas foods.  Yum!  So, here they are - I was even inspired to dig out one of my Christmas plates to put them on.

... And just to continue the Christmas theme, I bought Issue 181 of The world of Cross stitch today (although last week I bought 182 and 183 - it is such a nuisance trying to get them here in Australia) and the free gift was the Margaret Sherry Christmas Kisses card kit.  Now, I have been wanting to a) try a Margaret Sherry design and b) start on a Christmas ornie (Christmas Eve Couriers doesn't count as it is far too elaborate to get finished this year) - so I am really happy.  I will post my progress on it in another blog, but here is a pic of the design.

Now, lovely bloggers, don't forget to let me know if you want an extra entry in my Olga Gostin kit Giveaway to make a further comment letting me know on this post, but, of course, any sweet purrs are welcome.

Off to watch 'The Amazing Race' and work on Christmas Kisses,

Hugs, Kaye xoxoxox

Hi Kaye, I've been planning to get my Christmas dishes out, too! How nice that you have a Margaret Sherry Christmas kit to stitch at just the right time!

Please give me another entry for your drawing. Thank you!
