I would love to just lie to you up front. Make you believe that this was in my plans. Dreams perhaps, but not plans. LOVE it!!! I will smock just about everything that doesn't move, but even I know I could never justify this. Not when there are a zillion other things I want to get smocked and can't sleep at night for planning.
Of course it doesn't hurt that it is in one of my favorite color schemes. Pink and green. A preference that was almost obliterated when youngest daughter was in college. Her sorority colors were pink and green. So there was a lot of it around. But I must really like it, because 4 years of saturation didn't turn me off.
This perhaps would be a time when even I would use :gasp: machine smocking. No, not going to happen. More than the reason that I am not a fan of machine smocking; I HATE, (did I say that loud enough?) home dec sewing. HATE, HATE, HATE! I would be one of those fools who would plunk down hard earned money for someone else to do it. Except that the price for someone else to do it, would far exceed the value needed for a port a crib at Mimi's house.
Sigh, it is beautiful though. A girl can dream.
