Snow Day Sewing and Sweets

We are still experiencing snow and ice, so I am staying inside and stitching!
This little jumper, with its sweet heart design fabric, will be perfect not only for upcoming Valentine's Day, but also beyond.

I used Bonnie Blue's Jordan's Jumpers and Dresses for the pattern.
The fabric is from the Moda grouping Sent with Love.
I selected the flat front for the jumper, ruffles on the shoulder straps and cute little gathered pockets.

The slightly gathered back will allow more ease for an active little girl!
With our unpredictable Texas weather, it can be worn with a turtleneck or as a sundress.

Stitching was not the only thing going on here today.
There is something about cold and snowy weather that always makes me hungry for warm homemade bread.

I happened to have the ingredients for these, and they made me and my tummy very happy!

I followed the recipe from the blog,  StoneGable.
 I did find it better to reduce the cooking time to 10-12 minutes, instead of 15.

If you want to kick it up a notch, try the yummy version

Wishing all of you a sweet weekend!

What an adorable jumper. I love BB patterns but sadly my granddaughter is outgrowing them as most only go to size four.

Love the yummies

Mmmmm. I love the smell of yeast rolls baking. Especially Cinnamon rolls. They remind me of a particular snow storm in my childhood when my mother made them too. Must be something about snow storms and cinnamon rolls.

So good to see you are back to doing something you love "sewing". As always, each creation is perfectly crafted.

Arnt those cinny buns easy! You can freeze them too and then pop one out of the freezer into the microwave for afew seconds.

Have a wonderful day.

Thank you so much for linking this adorable dress to my blog party. I just love the fabric. Brings back memories of when our girls were little. They always loved dresses and the black shoes that made the "clicky" noise! Now they're in college.
Take care,
