Stitching In My Garden

I love stitching in my Garden!
This morning I had the best peach, my favorite muffin (wholewheat, bran, banana, blueberries and nuts) and Mocha coffee which was really half milk.
I read about Lydia from the Bible.  Acts 16:11
Did you know that Lydia was a seller of fine fabric?
My Graham Thomas rose was looking mighty fine this morning.
I am stitching a little white Daygown and trying out a new sleeve.
Using a beautiful cup!
I finished attaching the entredeux to the neck of the Daygown.
Using the old fashioned method that I love.
And peeked at the latest Sew Beautiful magazine.  
I have an article featuring three different designs using the same pattern - my Best Embroidered Baby Clothes One!

I love coming to your blog and reading it and looking at your serene pictures. For a few minutes I let my mind drift from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and dream of one day having a garden like yours to sit and sew in serenity.

What a lovely post! You are so brave to drink coffee and sew white fabric at the same time. I wouldn't dare for fear of spilling. I love the new article.

I love your 3 little dresses in the new SB! Makes me want to hurry up and cut out 3 just like them. I adore the two classic dresses, but the little pink kitty dress is just too cute!!

I love that Lydia was a seller of fabric. Beautiful.
Your little day dress is going to be beautiful.
