I just had to have it. And I couldn’t decide which ones, so I bought them all.
Yes, I am talking about Katie Jump Rope, the new line by Denyse Schmidt. Now, before you think I went all crazy (you are thinking that, aren’t you?), I bought fat quarters of every print. See? Not as bad as you thought. You were thinking I bought yardage, weren’t you? They came to me via Cia’s Palette and they came super fast too. I ordered on Saturday and they were on my doorstep Monday at noon. No special mailing either – the good ol’ USPS Priority Mail.
I’ve had my eye on these prints since last fall when I saw a peek of them on someone’s blog (not sure whose, sorry.) Sally has made some nice things using them and she gave me a little insight as to the exact hues since it is so hard to tell on the computer. I hemmed and hawed about which ones to buy. You know I like green so those were a given and blue is always good. Orange is a new favorite and who doesn’t like brown and… well, you get the picture. I just couldn’t choose.
They are beautiful in person – I am especially in love with the greens and blues. I wish there were a few more red prints, but I am going to make do. I have a number of projects in mind, but I don’t think I can make everything with just a fat quarter. No way. I am going to have to buy yardage. Of some of them, at least. Yes, you knew it, didn’t you?
