You can find fabulous recipes for tantalising dishes, sure to please even the toughest critics from page 89 – 94. On Page 111 you can find directions to turn everyone’s favourite Anzac biscuits into a delicious slice, filled with caramel, and topped with cream, banana and passionfruit! Mouthwatering!

Do you enjoy patchwork quilting? Pages 44 – 50, have quilts to take you right through to winter.  Start now and choose from rugs done in hearts and check material, a bargello quilt done from a jelly roll, or a large star quilt using half triangles and square pieces- simple enough for beginners.

If your garden needs a lift, try planting some variegated plants to replace the flowers that are starting to fade and die.  Speckled, streaked or colored foliage leaves in pots, bring the outside inside to brighten your home for the winter months.

Take a look at page 82 for some “Potty Ideas” for a fantastic feature piece on your patio.  Use bright colored petunias, ferns or succulents and paint the planter any color that you like. Follow the instructions to create your very own masterpiece.
