I'm sorry that I seem so lax about posting here. In my defense, we have been doing a bit of traveling for birthdays and sporting events and the like.
"Froth and Buble" has been with me, and I have definitely made quite a lot of progress on it. As soon as we get back to NYC, (and my camera) I will show you how far I have gotten.
I've also been working on the Soldiers' Kiss Pillows -- they are small (about 5" square), and I can handle them easily on air planes and at basketball games, etc.
