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.

MIA....

.... that is what we call it at my work when we are out of the office for any length of time on business.

Well, I am going to be MIA from work, home and blogging to some degree for the next three weeks.

As you may remember, I am an educational publisher and here in Australia we are having a new Australian Curriculum implemented.  So, I am conducting Workshops around Australia to help teachers understand the new History Curriculum and to show them the fabulous resources we have published (both as hard copy books and as digital product) to help them implement the new curriculum.

Luckily for me I am not travelling on this Roadshow alone - I am going with a couple of my fabulous colleagues.

This week I am in Queensland for three days, next week it is Perth in WA for three days and the following week is Sydney, also for three days.

I will be home on the weekends in between but, that will be catch up time with all that I have missed at home during the week.

Of course, I am taking some stitching with me - haven't decided what exactly yet - and I have some pre-organised posts to upload whilst I am on the Road, but I may not have time to read and comment on all your lovely blogs and I will only be on my home email intermittently.

But please, do know, I will be thinking of you all whilst I am MIA.

Now, I cannot post without a pic or two - these are of Milo this time, I think that he thinks he is a Guard Cat!

Guarding the washing in the downstairs family/utility room:



Guarding my DMC threads (I am in the middle of putting them all on String Bows and into two big folders - my aim is to eventually have the entire DMC collection in my stash).



Have a good week everyone,

hugs,

P.S. Those ginger cakes I made last Sunday, see this post here, are still delicious a week later - so they keep well.

Hope you have a successful trips(s). I have tried putting my threads onto those string bows but never know how to deal with left over strands that have been cut but not used. They wrap quite easily onto the little cardboard holders. What do you do? (no need to answer till you get back)
