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.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Tudor Tuesdays Coming!!

My Swapaway Friend, Kim (Wisdom with Needle and Thread), and I are Tudorphiles (aka, Tudor Crazy Ladies). Anything Tudor strikes our fancy. A few years ago, I started a “Tudor Tuesday” Facebook page so we could share any Tudor stitching-themed pieces with other Tudor-crazed fans.

Well, Kim and I always seem to be on the same wave-length (even though we live 9,517 miles apart). Whilst chatting on Gmail yesterday, Kim asked me if I thought a “Tudor Tuesday” blog would be a good idea, as some people LOVE the Tudors, as well, but don’t belong to Facebook. My exact response was

"Hi Kim, We are SSF - I just thought of that about five mins ago!  lol!”

So – we are launching a new blog called “Tudor Tuesdays”.  It will be for Tudor Fanatics to post about anything Tudor (on any Tuesday of the month). It can be about books, movies, TV shows, stitching, interesting Tudor history factoids….whatever you’d like to share with other Tudorphiles.

So – without any further adieu, let’s play! Please join us! Simply comment here or send either Kim or I a note you’d like to join us and discover more about everything Tudor!

P.S. You know you’re a Tudorphile when your husband and your children refuse to go on an overseas holiday to London with you because they just KNOW that you will drag them to see Hampton Court Palace AGAIN!                                                              OR

You know you're a Tudorphile whenever you mention Henry VIII and you get an 'eye roll' from your daughter and husband. They both sigh and say - in unison - "NOT AGAIN!"

Sounds like fun :-) I'm not much of a Tudorphile, but I know you'll have fun with it.

Yes please..... I still haven't stitched anything Tudor but I just Henry VIII! I watch anything slightly Tudor related on TV... just think I might just qualify as a Tudor Addict!! :o)

PS: I had a funny feeling that this might be what you two were cooking up!! :o)

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Another great idea! I'll follow this one but won't join in the posting.

I had to sort the History section at work recently. There were two shelves of Tudor books and then about six books for the whole of th period up to the Victorians! Seems like no one is interested in that period at all.

You seem to be overflowing with ideas for SALs, lol. But I will miss this one out. All the others I have been joining are nearly more than I can handle, lol.
