missing in action

So I've been missing in action these last few weeks .

A week of family birthdays spent at the beach

where I  spent a good deal of time gazing at & floating in this 

There was sewing too ... the Liberty cross quilt is coming along & I managed to finish the cutting of my Single Girl quilt & pieced the first arcs .
I have decided to use a Bella solids in white as my background .
I was tempted to use a pale grey ... the picture is my grey kitchen bench . So I have been checking out everyones progress on the flickr group & love this one  which looks so good on white .

There was also shopping !! 

Little Peach at Bangalow use vintage kimonos to make these pretty  covered buttons . 

Simple way to brighten up a cardie methinks .

 red and blue

Some dotty bowls for the cats  

& a tumbler for me 

Beautiful bright beads also for me  , yes for me !!

This baby boy quilt came back from Leone the quilter , big round stipples again , they work so well on 

the square design . this one goes to London .

phew that's a post & a half  , not accustomed to this much concentration lately

happy Sunday

the colors on the baby quilt are scrumptious, the simple block design lets the cute elephant pattern breathe; lovely quilt!
