edgy post

selvedge sewing in full these done just yesterday...

after sewing a while, was pleasantly surprised to see that the shoebox was now only half full...

thought i might have to rethink my goal of 40 potholders but, as luck would have it, there is a veritable goldmine of selvedges very close onward to 40!   ***  recently at guild meeting, a quilty pal gifted me with this; it's a left-handed cutter by martelli...i have no collaboration with this company other than to say this is one nifty cutter for us lefties...i find that there is less strain on my shoulder with this than even my olfa ergonomic cutter.

it's something i wouldn't have bought for myself, but have expressed my thanks to the giver....**** enjoying the last hot weather of summer i think...have to keep telling myself it's almost mid-october.   with the winding down of farmer's market, retooling my veggie options for winter.  it's been a year of doctors, drugs and diet that has sometimes been overwhelming but always thankful for the huge treat received last halloween...


  1. I just “got” your title you witty girl! I worked with selvedge for the first time this year. They could be addicting!

  2. :)...gotta do something with that english degree...and i agree they DO become addictive

  3. Great selvedge blocks! Too nice to just be potholders!

  4. Wow, that is a lot of selvedges! I have one of those cutters and I love it now, but it took me a while to get used to it.

  5. What a great way to use those selvedges, Grace. I cut 'em off and toss 'em into a bag. When that bag is full it goes into the deep stash. (Don't worry, I won't send them to you.)
