It's crisp and cool out, but the skies are clear, and the sun is shining. It doesn't seem like a January day. I don't know if it was subliminal messaging, or what, but over a breakfast of toast slathered in freezer strawberry jam, I ordered this fabric to make into a new robe for myself. I need something light-weight, and liked this cute print....so cheery and fresh. The fact that it was on a clearance sale, didn't hurt my feelings any, either.
