Today my husband and I went out for lunch to the beautiful Paragon in Katoomba. It is so unusual for us both to have the same day off it was lovely. I wanted to check out the dinning room as I am organising a dinner for Summer School, I already have a wonderful guest speaker (no it's not me) she will dazzle you with her quilts.
I think you will agree after seeing the photo's we will have to have our dinner here, the Queen came in 1954!
So here is the heritage listed Paragon established in 1916.
Old cash register.
Coffee shop in the front of the building.
Not that I was looking but chocolate counter.
Lunch was yummy.
I have also booked the Community hall for Summer School which is opposite the railway station has plenty of parking is adjacent to a park for lunch outside and a stroll to the shops plus has loads of room.
For those of you doing Hidcote garden block of the month the Dutch chintz fabric I used is being reprinted.
Lisbeth will let us know when it is back in stock. I used antique ecru Marken fabric border stripe which is the same colour as the Tree of Life panel.
Here are my side baskets.
Phew I have been busy! When you cut your borders for the baskets cut down the length of the fabric and add sides first then top and bottom, I had it the other way around on the pattern which is a very tight squeeze.
I will post some of the girls Folk Art homework Sunday as I think I have said enough!
