Selvage Misprint and Winners Announced

Linda from Iowa (and the Flourishing Palms blog) sent me this photo of a selvage misprint. At first glance you might guess that it was a Bostonian using his phonics skills to spell "Garden," but then the whole name would be "Gaden Paddy," so that can't be it. Haha. Thanks, Linda.

A friend once told me that she and her husband were not up for pizza and beer because they were watching their "cobbs." Wha? You know, short for carbohydrates. Well duh.

I doubt it is uncommon since much of our fabric is printed in non-English speaking countries.

I made a selvage check book cover yesterday with an Alexander Henry cobweb fabric that is printed as "on the weds" :)

Congratulations to the winners!
I am inspired to try something with selvedges, so after I get finished with the gifts I started, I can try my idea.
