I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this pattern. My mother used to sing this song to me when I was a little girl and I also sang it to my boys when they were babies. The minute I saw it I knew I had to have it.
Now, this had me wondering - Was this really a song? I only knew it as my mother sang it and thought she just made it up. With the wonders of the internet and Google I discovered that it is an old Doris Day song. Mom's version was shorter of course as I am sure it was sang to meet the attention span of young Myra. LOL
La-D-Da has another pattern Mares Eat Oats and my mother sang that song to me too! I Googled it and found it to be a bonafide childrens song. Check it out here. You will be tapping your toes and singing along just as sure as I will be stitching this design in the near future as well.
Memories....aren't they great?!
"I love you a bushel and a peck, a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck. A hug around the neck and a bushel and a peck. I. Love. You!" (This is how my mom sang it to me)
