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.

A lovely surprise!


I had such a lovely surprise when I arrived home from work tonight.  I found that lovely postman of mine had brought me those lovely parcels.  It was another PIF - one which I had totally forgotten that I was going to be a recipient of - from Cathy Moore from Bits n' Bobs.  Look at the wonderful presents she made and gave me, she knows me so well - they are all kitten-related!   I feel so blessed to have such lovely bloggy friends.  Thank you so much, Cathy! You are so lovely!  ... and such a talented stitcher.











Now, having received this PIF - I now need three more "volunteers" to be recipients of PIFs from me.
So, who would like to receive a special handmade gift from me sometime over the next 12 months??????

Remember,  the PIF only works if the recipients are then willing to PIF to three other stitchers each, once they have received their gifts.
If you are interested, please write a comment on this post letting me know and then I will have a drawing of names if I have lots of victims willing volunteers.  I will  keep the PIF open for about a week and I will post anywhere in the world.


I also had another Halloween Happy Dance this weekend:


Alphabet Cat from JCS Halloween 2012.  I think that it is so cute. I have made it for a friend at work who has two cats who could be twins of Furio and Milo.


See you later,
