Do pop over to Jenny's blog and take a look at the ANZAC quilt she has featured there today.
The NZ Government guide to ANZAC Day has lots of information about the traditions and background to ANZAC Day so you might like to go over there too. 
Here's a basic recipe for Anzac Biscuits from the site. It gives a chewy, moderately sweet version. Various things may be added to the mixture for variety: dried fruit, nuts, or spices such as ginger.
Melt 115g butter and 1.5 tablespoons of golden syrup.
Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in 2 tablespoons of boiling water.
Mix in: 1 cup of rolled oats, 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of coconut, ½ cup of sugar.
Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto baking paper,
and bake until a pale golden colour (about 15 minutes) at 180°C.

And as it's ANZAC Day it's time to select the winner of my First Blogiversary Giveaway.
A big  
to everybody who follows my blog and for all the comments you take the time to write, it's great to be part of this lovely online community. 

So, the winner is.....

rather embarrassingly, but that's random number generating at it's best,


who just happens to be my sister!  I did consider generating another number but that wouldn't be fair to Jane who is a bona fide follower after all!  And it'll save me the postage!  Congratulations Sis, I'll be bringing you some quilting goodies home.

  4. Hi Lis
    You've had such a lovely time in NZ since you left New Plymouth.Can't wait to see you quilt from the mini symposium. The NZ quilting world is a very small place. Yvonne, who looked after you in Picton took a class here in New Plymouth which I attended about 18 months ago! Ian and I are hoping to see you and Al when we come over, only 1 more sleep!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Take care and safe journey home. Debbie & Ian


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
