Some of the summer travels have ended for now - can you tell?

This first week back has put is at the beach in three different states on three different days, but then, here I am, relaxing on the patio where we started in June. With a drink.

The Rose is still a big favorite around here - I also have a bottle of Pink Truck in the fridge (as recommended by Sarah), but this is the one we opened for a little family birthday on Thursday.

And speaking of family birthdays....

Here's a little number I've been working on for my little cousin Ailee's first birthday. She's already gotten a few hats and a dress from me in her short lifetime, but her Mom loves the knits, so I'm a sucker when it comes to projects for her.

I was a little afraid I was shooting the whole button wad at once, but now that it's done, I can't imagine a better use for all my little white flowers (and yes, i still do have a bunch left).

I tried to take shots of all the different flowers, so excuse the obvious photo overload.

Can't wait to give it to Ailee tomorrow at her party!

Those are really cute flower buttons and you used them very cleverly. Colors are really nice as well! Cute!

Absolutely adorable. You always seem to find a way to stick at least a couple of buttons on a project and make it work. Nice talent.
