My grandson was born in April
and before he was born,
my daughter and son in law asked for a

to make the whale, but immediately knew
it was not what I wanted.
The fabric pull was going to be way to busy.

As a side note,
for some reason none of your comments are

I have looked to see if I can change a setting,
but have had no luck.
Does anyone have a suggestion on what to try?
I do appreciate all of your comments and feel badly
that I can't reply.
