The quilting isn't quite finished, but I was in the mood to add the binding. After a brief visit to Patchwork on Central Park on Sunday, I purchased some new Liberty for the binding for calico & linen . I haven't been fabric shopping in a while and it was nice to see 'new' fabrics in store - so much Liberty. I love the detail and colour in this one and of coarse the texture and feel.
A little splurge on Liberty for the binding will add a nice bit of life to this quilt. There is a little left over for the stash, Liberty would never go to waste.
Now for more hand stitching...
I'm already thinking about what to do next, it's always a little depressing when a quilt comes to an end. I don't know if I'm up for another quilt right now, I don't need another...

Last week at my kiddies school they had a day where they could dress in red & white and donate a gold coin to aid those in Japan. Bells didn't have any red & white clothes so I made a simple skirt for her with a little red trim, she's still at an age where the elasticised waist is ok, so I went with that. She was very happy.

After admiring one of Leslie's pochee magazines on a week-end away I went in search of them and found this one here (excellent speedy service). It's a linen & cotton special with some beautiful creations and lovely photography. Here's just a few pics of some of my favorites.

I've just come back home from a holiday at Pambula Beach, I miss being there already. We went with our family, my sister, her hubby, my nephew, my brother & his wife. A great time was had by all. Anyway the photo below is from Bournda back beach - so beautiful, no one else was there.
This great little shop called Bowerbird was in the main street of Pambula, so many beautiful things - a mix of antiques, second hand & vintage.
Whilst on holiday I picked up a few things from the op shops in Pambula, Merimbula & Eden.
I just liked the cover & title of this novel, I haven't read it yet.
why oh why do holidays have to end...
