I miss-numbered the weeks and I don't really know what week I am on and I am a day late too. Oh well. As long as it is finished by Christmas, right?
I have been working on a rag t-shirt quilt for Brown Bear. I have had the hardest time thinking of something for him and this seemed perfect. He is building new beds for his room and what better to go with that then a new blanket for his bed. ( i mean all he has asked for is a fedora. what?) I had someone help me get started and then I finished on my own. It turned out nicely, but not quite how I had pictured it at first. I wanted it to be a little bigger and with a flannel edge. The fabric store didn't have any nice flannel (unless I wanted Thomas the Train) so I went with a fleece back with brown bears on it. (appropriate, right? Yeah, I didn't even get the connection until my friend pointed it out to me.)(I don't have a picture of the quilt and it is wrapped so I will take one after Christmas. and please ignore the dirty socks!)
I also have been working on pettiskirts for the little girls. I don't think that I would EVER do it again. Ruffling 1080 inches of chiffon wasn't fun. I finished Koala's today. She wasn't happy about it at first, then kept saying "Pretty!Pretty!". It helped that we bribed her with cherry sours too. :)
