I'm in Switzerland!

As promised, I took a picture of my 4 month old granddaughter wearing the Ottobre jacket I made for her. As you can see, the size 68 jacket is big on her. But she'll grow. In the week since I've been here in Zurich she seems to have grown bigger right before my eyes.

I will be here in Switzerland for a total of three weeks, and I'm having a wonderful time with my daughter, granddaughter, and son-in-law. Zurich is beautiful! Switzerland is beautiful! We have kept busy every day, sightseeing, picnic-ing, shopping, and visiting castles, old churches, museums.... And of course, I am finding time to hug and kiss on the baby. Oh, she is so adorable, so sweet, so good natured, so absolutely precious! I am savoring every minute with her because I don't know when next I will see her.

If you care to see pictures of my travels in Switzerland, I have them here on Flickr.


p.s. I've not yet found a fabric store in Zurich, but my daughter promises me there is one or two that we'll visit.

  3. I love the jacket, and what fun to visit Switzerland! Have a great time and post some pictures of the fabric you find there! :)


  4. Gorgeous (and your grand-daughter isn't bad either :))... I've recently started collecting the Ottobre Design Magazines for women but I am now so tempted to start looking out for the kiddies ones too... even if I don't have any little ones right now it'll be a good investment :)


  5. It looks as though you are enjoying Switzerland! What a sweet-faced little one! I love the Ottobre designs, though I have never had the pleasure of owning a magazine. One day I will try it out. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.

  6. Your Grand-daughter is beautiful and that jacket is so cute!
