Stitch Group Sunday and Name for the Baby Panda

I love getting together with my stitch group!  They are finding out that it is hard to know when you are finished with a crazy quilt project, so we continue stitching.  

This is my bag.  It looks like it could be finished but it is not.  I want to add more stitches to the side and some beads on the flap.  It's hard to know when I am finished.  

Grapes and cheesecake and omiyage treats.

It was announced yesterday that the baby panda born on June 12th at Ueno Zoo has been named Xiang Xiang (Shan Shan in Japanese).  She weighs 6 kilograms and is 65 centimeters long (as of last Thursday).  She has been witnessed taking a few unsteady steps by zoo staff.
