My middle son, Ethan (who is 9) liked the crocodiles best. He wanted to know if Michelle had been to Darwin? I asked why? He said that She must have since she knows just what all the crocs look like lined up waiting for the slaughter house run off. They do look rather merry, don't they?
** When we lived in Australia, there was a slaughter house up in Darwin that dumped it's run off into the area waterways. Needless to say the rivers and ponds were rather dangerous places filled with saltwater crocs waiting for their meal delivery of cow hooves and legs. Well, the slaughter house shut down (maybe for it's unsavory practices??) and all these massive saltwater crocodiles were left without steady meals, so they had to disperse into the ranch land and find their own live cows to dine on. The Northern Territory News paper was always filled with stories of giant crocodiles eating people and animals.
I bound the quilt with fabric from the dragon print.
I just love how fun the fabric is! Giraffes at the waterhole. Dragons and bats frolicking among the wild flowers.
