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.

Another belated or catch up post from before my trip

As I am sure you all know by now, I am really behind on my blog "housekeeping", so this post is another attempt to catch up on my housework!

Just before I left I was lucky enough to win second prize in Margaret from A Sampler of Stitches 200 followers giveaway.  Here is the link to her giveaway post.

The lovely prize arrived just before I left for the States but I didn't have any time to post about it or to even thank Margaret properly.

So, I would like to thank Margaret very much for sending me this lovely present - a gorgeous hand stitched coin purse, and a needlebook and little calendar.   
And as you can see Furio helped me open my wonderful gift.

I am so lucky!  Thank you again, Margaret.

Nice prize. Great job of stitching too. Your cat seems to like it. He's so cute, he looks somewhat like my little cat. And like him, Saturn loves to get into my stitching.
