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.

Two winners announced...

Hello lovely bloggers,

Well, I have the winners of my Day 3 and Day 8 Giveaways for 12 Days of Christmas in Blogland to announce (Day 12 is still open until midnight on Sunday 8th January), but first I have a couple of other things to show you first:

1.  UCJC Day 5 start: New England Sampler by The Sampler Company (Brenda Keyes)

 I am sorry, I did not seem to be able to take a decent pic today despite my newish camera. The fabric is 28 count cream Lugana - which is a joy to stitch on.  I am going to really like working on this design this year.  I was sad to have to leave this little lady alone at the end of the day yesterday.  Here is a pic of what the design will look like one day:

This afternoon, imagine my surprise when the postman brought me this from Shirlee. I had forgotten that I had won a runners up prize in her Christmas giveaway.  See what she has so generously given me:

A gorgeous Christmas stocking to stitch.  I am so lucky, thank you, thank you, thank you, Shirlee.

Now, enough teasing - onto the winners:

Day 3 of 12 Days of Christmas in Blogland winner is:


Your prize is the Angel kit - here is a reminder pic:

Here is pic of what you have won:

Congratulations to both Veronica and Kimberly, if you could email me on KayeDeP@gmail.com with your snail mail addresses, I will post you your prizes.

Now, don't forget that my Day 12 Giveaway is still open until midnight, January 8th - you can comment on this post for a chance to win another great giveaway.

Well, off to do my laps now and then some more stitching on Day 6 of UCJC.

Hugs and love to all, 

Kaye xoxox
