Kathleen Connors Donates Selvage Items

Kathleen Connors of Torrington, CT made this pretty selvage pot-holder, inspired by the work of Martina Odenthal of Germany. (See recent post.) Here's what she had to say:

"I found that a pot holder is a good way to practice my beginner machine quilting skills. I'll donate this to a holiday sale to benefit the Harwinton Public Library, along with my selvage pincushions and other stitched items."

Nice job, Kathleen! I live so close to Harwinton, I'm going to check out the event and see what else you're making.

Very, very nice! I agree with you, that Kathleen's done a good job. Can't believe,she's a beginner ;-)
Yours, Martina

Thank you so much, Karen, for your kind comments. I've made selvage pincushions for the Library Sale and lots of things without selvages. Yesterday my daughter suggested coffee cup cuffs made with selvages, but my time is running short!
I look forward to seeing you at the sale; I'll be manning the cashier's table. Sewing and donating to a holiday sale is the best way to get in the holiday mood; our library patrons donate nearly everything that we sell at the Sale.

Martina, thanks for you comment. I loved the color combo of your pot holders and the layout of your photo. I wondered if photography is one of your talents, too.
