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.

Some Stash Empire Building ....

..... Quilting Fabbie-style:


I had to spend some time in Mount Waverley yesterday, helping out my elderly parents with the visit of the  Chronic Heart Failure Nurse from Cabrini Hospital (sounds very ominous doesn't it?) and then with a doctor's visit to care for the open wound on my DM's leg (she knocked her swollen calf on the hospital bed and caused an enormous haematoma on her leg (about 2 inches long by over 1 inch wide!).  So, after I finally dropped them off home I went to have a very late lunch right next door to the Quilt shop, Somerset Patchwork and Quilting, in Mount Waverley - Natch!

I just couldn't resist these 19th century reproduction fabrics:





and the gorgeous colours of these variegated threads from DMC.

I pray that your parents will be well & that your DM's leg heals quickly. What beautiful fabrics! I always had a soft spot for 19th century reproductions ... also the 1930s reproductions.
