Have you ever had one of those shopping experiences
where you just want to scream jackpot at the top of your lungs?
Well today, I yelled KATIE JUMP ROPE!
Today, I spent some quality girl time with my mom and sister shopping. We had a few things on our list, prom dress fabric for my sister, a new camera for me (more on those later), and my mom needed to stop at a LQS. Once a month, her and a group of friends are involved in a monthly sewing club and she needed to catch up on the patterns. I had only been to the store once and it had been a few years, so I was very excited to go along. Ladies, I walked in and started hyperventilating. Literally. There was Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Far Far Away, Kona Solids, so much awesome fabric! I couldn't concentrate. And then, I met Katie Jump Rope. Eeeek. I am still shaking! Now I missed out on this line when it first came out and have awed over it ever since. They had yardage (pictured above) and I landed my hands on the last FQ set, which will made into a Single Girl Quilt soon. Ah!
When I found it I just wanted to scream and tell someone. My sister and mom had a hard time understanding my excitement. My boyfriend tried his best sharing my excitement when I called him. But it just wasn't the same. I wanted to rush home and blog about it, because you all can relate. You all know what it is like to find some great quilting fabric. And you all know how exciting it is when you hit the jackpot!
