The new Sew Beautiful Magazine has arrived and is full of wonderful ideas for winter sewing.
Not wanting to let the baby boys to be left out, I once again have something in the magazine especially for them. A long sleeve daygown made out of mint pima cotton with a sweet little train embroidered on the front yoke.
It had a couple of winter babies and this is just the type of gown that looked so sweet on them.

A turquoise corduroy dress for our girl. Smocked with an original snowman design and trimmed with red gingham piping. What do I love best about snowmen? They are appropriate all through the Winter!
Sorry, the snowman design is not quite ready to share.

I have stitched up several jumpers lately for our special someone to wear to preschool. Denim or corduroy, the jumpers sew up quickly and work great with a blouse or long sleeve shirt. The jumpers are also cute with machine applique' on the front yoke or front skirt.
I find my wooden point turner comes in very handy when turning the yokes and facings right side out.
Not quite enough fabric for a jumper? Why not use a contrasting fabric for the yoke, which is very stylish right now! :)

We are staying close to home these days as Rex recovers from a mild stroke, but the weather is much too lovely to stay inside. We have made it our goal to rediscover our area. Our roots run deep in North Alabama. My family moved back to the area in 1972, while both sides of Rex's family have been in the same town for over 150 years. I never get tired of the family stories that he tells on our drives.
A Sunday afternoon drive was just what we needed to appreciate God's creation.
