i ♥ katie jump rope

the 2 older kids had swim lessons last week, so each day i had a half hour to explore garnett, ks.  which is actually plenty of time, it's small!  we hit the arc thrift shop, and the country fabrics shop.  i found a pretty vintage sheet with lace trim to make pjs out of, and the fabric shop has a few designer prints from amy butler's lotus line, kaffe fassett florals, and denyse schmidt's katie jump rope line.  mostly country calicos and thimbleberries though.  all $4.99 a yard.  and all soon to be 20% off for their anniversary sale in august!  i may have to make a trip back to buy a few yards.  anyone else want some katie jump rope?  here's what they had:

floral in orange or brown

brown floral

or at my other local shop, she has these two prints for $4.99 a yard.

brown dot stripe

geometric print

let me know, i'd be happy to arrange something!  there's also a bolt of AMH's chocolate lollipop

in the kitchen, i've been trying to make stuff with all the goodies from my dad's garden.  so i made freezer bread & butter pickles, cole slaw, blackberry dump cake.  also, freezing corn on the cob and tomatoes, and i was meaning to make pepper jelly but my peppers are looking sad.  i also made some monkey banana jam with a pile of bananas that were 19 cents a pound.  it's pretty good but i think it'd be better with bananas less ripe.  it's got that overripe taste to it.
