North to Wintersun

The last few weeks of May sees Top Gear and myself off to a car rally meeting in Queensland. Last year it was held on the Gold Coast, this year it is in and around Kingaroy.....the peanut capital of Australia.
First stop was meant to be Armidale, but we only got as far as Scone.....oh dear!

Never mind, car repairs in Armidale meant I got time to find the patchwork shop ( and the dress shop and the shoe shop.....).
Next stop was Warwick. There are three or four patchwork shops in town, and one especially lovely one just on the outskirts of town. Glenrose Patchwork is situated in a lovely country home on acreage and also does B&B cottage accommodation. what more could a girl want!
From this overnight .....

To this in the morning........

Kingaroy was the hub for the rally and the organisers did well finding those secret spots you just don't find without local knowledge, like......
antique shops/ lavender farm/ coffee stops

and wineries with panoramic views of the area,

and picnic spots where you share with the wildlife!

Top Gear was in his element, lots of lovely Lancias to admire,

and still more to go.
Happy stitching!
