I was careful to not choose a fabric that is going crazy on my eyes, as I also would be very worried about getting sick of my choice. The colors are bright, but more in a warm manner, not neon-crazy. That is why I just fell in love with the fabric. And I always loved more bright colors. Now, my other big hobby however just is asking for screaming colors: Building and flying kites, two-string and one-string ones.
Throws and blankets would just never stay put, as I have a little critter around (my 4 year old daughter....).
