Selvage Sunday

Auntie came over to help mom with a project yesterday. While Auntie was there, she discovered mom has lots of fabric with lots of selvage. Now, Auntie loves selvage with colored dots or printed words on it, so mom went through her entire stash and Auntie started cutting selvages off mom's fabrics.

If you're curious about the selvage bandwagon, here is one of Auntie's posts about it. Anyway, I think Auntie made out like a bandit, don't you?

She also wanted some of mom's fabric. Mom gave her some, but told her forget it on some of the others. ha ha

Auntie then made dinner. I didn't get any, but PlusOne ate one and a half chicken cutlets, and all the green beans mom put on his plate. I didn't even get any green beans. Phooey.


Then they watched Top Gear. One episode was about Communist cars, which apparently were and are still terrible, and the really thorough road test for the Ford Fiesta (this was hysterical). In the other episode the Top Gear crew go "caravaning" (this is even more hysterical). Mom thought of Pug Possessed on this one, because they have a camper and use it all summer. Unfortunately, the Top Gear crew are not very good at caravaning. They are, however, very good at starting fires.

Suffice to say, that everyone had a good time. Except for me. No chicken, no green beans and what do I care about selvages. Hmmmph!

You did get some good lap time with PlusOne, though, Roxy. It's a shame about not getting any chicken or green beans, though.
