A double whammy of goodness from Robyn who sent me this great bag when I won a giveaway on her blog and also this scrumptious apron as part of my Pay-it-Forward gift. The attention to detail is amazing , and I love the covered button closure on the bag and of course being a collector of aprons , I really love this gift.
You know in blog land you often see posts where people say -"Oh there was also chocolate in the parcel but I ate it before I could take a photo" ...yes, well with me it is a bit like that with selvedges, so yes I did receive a parcel of selvedges from Christie as well but they have already been consumed by the big project.
I am thinking of just randomly hanging out at the two patchwork shops in town and approaching customers as they leave ....."pssst got any spare selvedge........?" I mean I have had the look down pat , disgusting bag-lady dressing gown worn over any odd assortment of clothes, hacking cough, questionable hygiene, breath of death.....
"come on, help a chick get back on her feet......anything you can spare....just to tide me over...I used to be like you , you know, I had it under control........c'mon , just a few inches.......
