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.

Lots of stitch progress on lots of projects...

I have been rather a busy bee stitching around my rotation.  Do you want to see what I have been up to?

Before and After photos of The Faerie Queene (Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year SAL project)



 A New Year Start (I began this on our Mulwala trip) - Autumn in New York by Primrose Needleworks.


For my Christmas Ornie SAL, I decided not to go with my first choice when I saw this quartet of nutcrackers.  I am stitching the Soldier for this month's Christmas Ornie.



I am doing a Heart swap for Valentine's day (organised by the lovely Cheryll) - here is a sneak peek.  Lovely colours but I don't think that these photos give too much away!



Lastly, still stitching the Travelling Pattern - Summer Garden - whilst on the train to work - here are my Before and After photos - as you can see, a lot of progress is happening here.


What are you all up to?

hugs,

Great progress, Kaye! Everything looks incredible. I'm intrigued by the "Autumn in New York" one, I might have to look that up! :P

Great stitching! I've joined the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL having failed at the Christmas one last year!
I do like those nutcrackers, Kathy A is a big fan.
I'm trying to get my 4 BAPS progressed this year. That's my main goal. NB I said "progressed" and not "finished" LOL.
