a smocked daygown

Fresh and brand-new she will be when she travels home from the hospital in this fresh and brand new smocked daygown made especially for her with love and prayers swimming around in every available space in my heart.
I used the Missy pattern by Children's Corner constructed in a white batiste.
The little miss will be adorned lovingly in her matching knitted pink sweater and bonnet  since she must travel home in style.

What a joy for you to go back to smocking and knitting small garments again! The thrill of expectation comes through your words. I am so happy for your whole family...and the clothes are so dear and beautiful.

You continue to amaze me. And, btw, my nickname from childhood is Missy, so the pattern is doubly sweet to me. :)

the 13th of October

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
