California Dreaming

Here's my Rocketry in Cotton EaseThis is for a California Baby, so I thought fruit to be appropriate for the buttons.
And really, not the most functional buttons- too many edges to catch- but it is for a brand new baby and cute out weighs everything else.

And did you know...
That the second Saturday in January (next Saturday) is Invite a Neighbor to Dinner Day here in Pennsylvania? Honest. It is.
There is an article in Cooking Light (Jan/Feb 08) about the family that petitioned to have the day created in 2002.
Anyway, the thing that most caught my attention was a quote by the Mother of the family, Mariette Danilo, "When people cook for you and entertain you, they tell you that they value you. They are saying that your relationship is important and that suddenly changes everything."
How true.
Community building- one neighbor at a time.
Here is their website. And Cooking Light has some menus to inspire you.
What's for dinner? Can I come?

I LOVE the sweater! It's so cute! And the buttons are fun for a little babe.

So are you havin' the neighbors over?
