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.

Weekend stitching....

This weekend I worked mainly on:

1. Day 4 of 12 Days of Santa (my SAL with Linda and Debbie):


You can just see one boot and the outline of his body taking shape.

2. The Faerie Queene - I am still working on the petit point section, so it is slow going but the first pic is  where I started on Saturday afternoon and the other two show where I finished on Sunday.




 Still a few letters in the dark brown to go.....  but there is definite progress happening!

Have a good Monday,

hugs,
