Once upon a time (sometime this past Winter), I met a lovely woman at a craft show. She and I started talking and laughing like old friends in a matter of minutes. She made these Cuddle Babies - soft fleece guys that looked like gingerbread men. The babies had a velcro flap that held a linen pillow of fragrant brown rice that you heated up in the microwave, put in the baby, and then cuddled with it.
I LOVE this thing. It's awesome, I put it in my bed on cold nights to warm up the blankets. Sometimes I use it as a neck pillow to relax my muscles. I love it.
Today I was the victim of shameless pilferage of my Cuddle Baby - The minute I turned around, someone took it. And here's the culprit!
