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.

I am a winner!

Lucky, lucky, lucky me - I won one of Nancy's from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe wonderful patterns in her Grand Giveaway.  This is the design which I chose:

I really like it - I hope that you do, too. It is such an apt saying.

 I feel so blessed by this wonderful cross stitch community of which we are all a part.  Thank you to everyone who visits this little blog of mine.

Congratulations on your win! I was excited to see a name I recognize when I looked at the winners' list. You made a lovely choice!

I have to share with you what I first though when I saw your post title. I follow your blog on my sidebar, not in Google Reader. So I have the title of your blog and the title of the current post. And I looked and saw, "I'm a winner," and thought, "We already knew that, Kaye." It was too funny not to share!!! Grats on the win. I love that saying too.

Hi Kaye,

Good for you for winning that beautiful
chart ... (in red ... oh boy!!) ... it's a
wonderful design which will be lots of
fun to stitch I'm sure.

Noah's ark is very cute but I wonder
if stitching each of those little animals
wasn't a bit repetitive? Lots of fits and

Actually I live in Georgetown, Ontario
Canada ... not the Georgetown of
Washington, D.C. fame. We're a nice
place to visit too.
