For My Friend Susan

Even though I am an only child, my parents did teach me to share, so I've given this bag filled with selvages to Susan in order to keep her from embarrassing herself while going through the trash cans on Main Street in Wellsboro (see her post here). Our town is too pretty to have a crazy quilter running around town mumbling something about needing the scraps that others throw away...We want to make sure that the tourists don't see something like that, so I feel like I've done my civic duty. Hopefully this will keep her away from the trash cans for a while...

My quilting friends have been very generous to me and before she realizes it, Susan may be knee deep in selvages soon...

What a great friend you are keeping her out of the trash!!

Susan said...

All I can say is thank God for good friends! The last thing anyone wants to see in Wellsboro is my backside sticking out of the dumpster behind Needles Quilt Shop! This nice little selvage stash should keep me off the streets for awhile longer. Thanks again!

It is great to have friends... especially a friend that keeps one away from *dumpster diving*!! This blog entry made me smile..you did good Anya (sharing selvages and bringing smiles)! Have a great evening!

How nice of you. My sister went through all my new fabric & ripped off the selvedges when I wasn't looking.. Good thing I'm crazy about her! :-).

Anya, did you see the ENTIRE jacket made from selvage edges in Bell Amoir magazine? I know I spelled that incorrectly! It's inone of the older issues. So cool!

Can't have any "dumpster diving" quilters running around Main St. ;-)
