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.

So sorry.....


I am so sorry that it has been over 11 days since I posted!!!!  I am so far behind on all my news and events which I wish to post about.  However, my Dear Mum who has just turned 91 was taken to emergency last week with a chest infection so all of my time has been taken up with hospital visits, looking after my 93 year old father and, of course, work and looking after my own family plus my 86 year old DFIL who lives with us!  I have been stitching (it is amazing what stitching you can get done at 3am whilst waiting in Emergency) but have had not the time or energy to blog, I am so sorry.

My Mum  is on the improve, thank goodness and is looking forward to going home either today or tomorrow (we hope!).

Anyway, I wished to share with you the lovely gifts I received from Sarah in Stitches. Such a lovely giveaway.

It is always exciting to receive that parcel from overseas:


 .... and look at all the gooodies!










Thank you so much, Sarah, I feel very lucky to have received such great gifts from you.

... and just to finish - here is Furio who thinks he needs to go shopping with me!


Love to you all,

hugs,

Furio looks quite cozy in the bag. My cats love to jump in my shopping bags when I come home, too.
