One of Baby's first gifts

For lack of anything better to share with you, here's something that you may find interesting. You just have to love this book. I bought it many months ago for $5.00 brand new! What a deal. Anyway, it's all about a little panda bear named Ping-Ping who is searching for juicy bamboo to eat. Along the way she meets all kinds of little Asian friends, such as a red panda, a pika and some birds and butterflies. It's a pop up book and the pictures are just beautiful. It's so neat how it teaches kids about animals that live in Asia. I thought it was perfect for our little one.

That's all for now. I wish I could share some good news about referrals but it looks like it's going to be a long, long wait (as if it hasn't been already!). We'll keep you posted.

Fabric Find

Check it out! Can you believe this fabric? I came across it accidentally at Walmart yesterday. Really, I wasn't searching for Elvis fabric. Most of you are probably thinking, "okay, Karen, that's really ugly fabric" but for those of you who know Mike at all, you'll know what a huge Elvis fan he is. Sooooo. . . . even though he already has a piece of fabric picked out for the 100 Good Wishes Quilt, this one just has to be part of the quilt too.
