Christmas stitching and more

As mentionned last night I have been finding a bit of time when Hannah has gone down for the evening to get my stitching or knitting out. Last week I finished the first four of the Lizzie Kate Christmas Double Flips. The fabric I'm using is a mocha belfast linen.

One of the local fabric shops has started stocking wool so I found this really cute hooded jacket pattern to knit for Hannah. The wool is called Cuddles 4 Me and is so lovely and soft. So far I've completed the back, one of the fronts and the hood. It knits up fairly quickly.


I couldn't resist sharing this cute photo of Hannah with her big cousin Zoe, hanging out together.


With the lovely weather we've been having, Glenn decided to put up Hannah's outdoor swing on Saturday, she thinks its pretty cool!

The doubleflips are looking great. Are there 12 in this series too, so that you're 1/3 done now? The sweater will be lovely, what a beautiful soft pink. Cute pictures too, my DD loved to swing when she was little also.
