Happy Birthday, Flannel Friday!

It's hard to believe that Flannel Friday is 3 years old and that I started participating not quite 3 years ago (May 6, 2011). Making felt sets is one of my new favorite hobbies. I also love interacting with all the great children's librarians who are involved with Flannel Friday.

Anne at So Tomorrow is our host for the special birthday roundup and she's asked us to reflect on the past three years of Flannel Friday wonderfulness and share favorite posts. I really liked how Lisa laid out her birthday post so I'm taking my cue from her.

I honestly am still in shock that it's been three years! It feels like just yesterday that FF got rolling!
