1 Xmas item a month - Lunch - and Daffodils

Today is 1 Xmas item a month day  hosted by Nell's Notions.

Straight after last month I ran upstairs and made two little sewing kit things. Someone said the pattern was in a Homespun magazine I think but I didn't have it. So I tried to make it up sticking bits of paper together to get the folds right. 

I love them but I haven't really worked out how to do the string closure. I might try to make a tassel.

The weather was so nice here yesterday we decided to go for a drive. We crossed the state line and a time zone to have lunch at Tumbulgum Tavern. It takes a bit over an hours drive to get there and the setting is so pleasant by the river.
The area is famous for Mt Warning a huge volcanic plug in the centre of a ring of mountains that form the caldera or eroded cone of the volcano. You can see the mountains behind Mt Warning in the photo I took from the car and imagine how big the volcano must have been!

The fields in the foreground are sugar cane farms.

I collect boutique coffee too. This one is at

And lastly, I was reminded of how much I loved the daffodils in England by the beautiful daffodil at Suz Place. I remember being amazed at the wilderness garden at Hampton Court Palace.

Happy Quilting,
