Jodie Carleton's Selvage Parasol!

As you know, Jodie Carleton of Ballarat, Australia is passionate about selvages. She is the creator of that amazing selvage dress that I keep on the sidebar to inspire us (at right). This photo is her latest big selvage project, a selvage parasol!

She has written a hilarious post about the siren call of selvages, even when we have other pressing items on our "to-do" list. Boy, do I know exactly what she is talking about! Take a look at this post: http://vintagericrac.blogspot.com/2008/11/with-inner-fortitude-of-marshmallow.html
You'll be surprised to read what she thinks about this parasol project. See: http://vintagericrac.blogspot.com/2008/11/tweaking-hell.html
