You know how it is always nice to spel words properly when other people will be reading your stuff? (ok, I tricked you I totally misspelled the word 'spell'=)
Anyhoo.... I know that is not a word, but it seemed fitting. Wow, I am really digressing this morning, that is what happens when I don't have my jumbo cup of coffee! Remember how I forgot to show you what a normal cup looks like compared to my new BIG cup? I took a pic so you could see. I do still like my little cup because it has dots on it!
My post today is about selvages, or selvedges. When I looked up the spelling, it said that 'selvage' is the US English version and 'selvedge' is the British English. Hello, where is the Canadian English version of the word? I thought this might be a good time to create one for all fellow Canadians. How about we spell it 'selvej'? Just as it sounds. I am pretty sure Webster's Dictionary people are going to be calling me shortly as I have just created a new word for Canada.
Oh my goodness I really need to focus. I decided to work on the latest challenge of Quilting Arts magazine... mostly because I felt like being humbled again by another rejection from them.
The theme for this one is 'Passages'. I considered doing a quilt with this question written across, 'Why do you keep passing me by?' but figured that may not be the best way to get into their magazine.
That is when I thought of my funky Riley Blake selvejs (selvedges, in case you just started reading here).
Now I have to turn this into something eye catching, but first I need to fill up my coffee cup!
Cecilia won the book-lucky girl!
J, Jennifer and Janet all won pins. Congrats ladies.
