Brown Bear Finished-almost

Well, I actually finished putting on the binding of Brown Bear, Brown Bear. This has been a long day but I'm still very excited about finishing something. I'll work on hand-sewing the binding this week.

Here's a photo of the finished block. I still need to do the embroidery of the eyes and mouth. But I've gone ahead and sewn the strip that's next to it.

Pteranodon Appliqued

We are also making pillow shams, a wall hanging and two valances for his room.

So, back to my dilemma...what now?

Here's some fabrics to start:

Country Cottages - Block One

I decided to join the Shabby Fabrics Mystery BOM. I didn't seem to have much in suitable fabric, so I ordered their program.

Got the house finished today, sans the roof!!!
