Stitching By The Fire.

I love to sit and stitch by my fire as much as I like to stitch in my Garden.  Well, almost as much.
I have tea to keep me warm.  In a  pretty Teacup.

I am smocking on a dress from Baby's Smocked Layette pattern.
This "loveliness to be" is what I'm stitching.
I'm using a new fabric. It's Bear Threads new dimity fabric in a soft, beautiful blue.
I'll show you more later.

I have ear phones in my sewing basket so I can listen to a book on tape.

My brown dog is so nosy!
Really, he just wants to be wherever I am.

The flowers have gone to bed.
They will sleep all winter.
The snow will come and cover them.
It will keep them warm.

Pretty fabric! What book are you listening to? I do that all the time, too. But I don't have such a gorgeous dog.
