Fabric Salad

Green goodness for quilters and sewists

Can you can?

I do try to eat local, and know that I could stretch my local foods by learning how to can. People say it’s easy, but I think I would end up putting up a whole batch of botulism.


Guess I’ll just stick with eating corn and tomatoes when they’re fresh…and maybe calling in a few favors on my friends who cook up sauce by the quart.

Or, I could live vicariously through this adorable print from Samantha Cotterill. Charming, isn’t it? If you want to get a closer look at Samantha’s enchanting illustrations check out her blog Mummy Sam. To purchase a yard or two of her organic knit fabric, visit her etsy shop.

    Beautiful blog Janice! I do the same thing…think about canning — sometimes even buy supplies and then I don’t do it. A can of corn or tomatoes is just so CHEAP! I do dry apples from our backyard trees though, so that counts as something, right?? 😉

      Thanks, Amy. Dried apples absolutely count…especially when the tree is in your backyard!
