It’s been a while since I posted.

This is what I’ve been doing.

I ♥ these fabrics!

Today I found some prequilted red fabric that I’ll use with the Brown Bear fabric. I can’t wait to get started on that project for my children…but it will have to wait until I get my other projects done first.

Although I started my Christmas projects earlier this year, I still find myself feeling rushed. I can’t believe it’s already December! What happened to November?

Can’t Get Enough of Brown Bear November 9, 2009

My children love the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle. They enjoy reading it and having it read to them.

Before naps and at night, Baby picks up her Brown Bear board book and takes it to her room.

The girls also enjoy reading and retelling the story with their Brown Bear flannel board animals.

Then I found this!

Aren’t these fabrics cute? Well, I decided to use them to make a blanket and pillow for both girls. I’m so excited and I hope they will be too!

I’ll post some pictures when I’m done with the pillows and blankets.
