THANK YOU EASTER BUNNY! (Reality check here -- thank you, thank you, thank you Mom for the lovely Easter time gift)
These fabrics are NOT my usual style at all -- but I am really looking forward to playing with them. Why? As my dh said -- not your usual retinal burn fabrics are they? Well -- no, but dd LOVES Dick and Jane. One of dh's aunts sent her the book this past Christmas and I have spent HOURS reading it to her since then. Of course, I could wish she would say the whole title rather than shouting "Dick!" when she wants me to read it to her. The first time she did that in front of my mil I almost choked on my drink trying to explain what she was asking for. Luckily I "won" in the in-laws lottery and mil laughed and did NOT think I had been teaching dd bad habits with my own language. It also turns out dd had already shouted it out and shoved the book at her at the same time when mil was watching her earlier that week. So, the bunny's (aka my wonderful mother's) gift to me will become a quilt I can "read" to dd and I am thrilled!
