A great giveaway

Jackie over at Canton Village Quilt Works is having a great give-away... It's a signed copy of "Quilts from the Selvage Edge" by Karen Griska ~ the selvage godess. If you haven't visited her blog (I've been lucky enough to be shown on it) you really should.  She has some amazing stuff on there.

I have been saving selvages for a while now ~ just waiting for the perfect project.   I'm thinking I may do my new clutch pattern and matching wallet with them but who knows.. if I manage to win this book (please please please let me win) I could come up with tons of selvage projects.
Don't be surprised if I come to your house and start cutting off all your selvages!

Thanks for posting about this, Barb - I've entered - good luck to both of us! (She has two copies, wouldn't it be funny if we both won? LOL!)

I've been saving selvages for a couple of months now - I don't have very many yet because I haven't been doing much sewing lately! 35 years of sewing ... imagine the selvages I could have had by now, LOLLLLLLLL!

Oh wow! I have always wanted to quilt. It just seems so relaxing and so much fun and I do keep all my left over pieces of material and old bits of ribbon, buttons etc.

sadly I don't get much time to do things like that although I do make cards, do scrap booking and make/fix jewellery when I do get the chance.

LOL.....its a disease you know, you will start by cutting them off and you'll end up begging in the streets...
