and we have a winner...

Thanks to everyone who made a comment regarding the name of my new etsy shop. Lots of good suggestions and feedback!

I added up all the comments left during the two days and gave that total to Random Number Generator to work its magic and the winner is Laurie, who said:

OK - I'll change my vote to Sewing on the Edge :)

And indeed, that is the name of the new shop, Sewing on the Edge. As much as I loved the name Selvaged, it came with its own problems and confusion. People simply have a hard time spelling it. American version (selvaged)? British version (selvedged)? And easy to confuse with Salvaged. When elpf pointed out that there was already an etsy seller with the name Selvedged, the decision was made.

Some people questioned the wisdom, or sanity, of using the word sanity as part of my etsy shop name.

However, Kristen had an excellent idea: to add a tag line. So, the etsy banner will read:

Sewing on the Edge
Selvaging my sanity, one stitch at a time

I thought that was the greatest solution. So, Kristen, you will also be finding a pincushion on its way to your mailbox. So will Becky, my niece, who came up with Sewing on the Edge in the first place.

Thanks so much to all of you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts and ideas. I hope you all have a happy and productive weekend. Me? I'll be selvaging my sanity, sewing on the edge, making items to stock the new etsy shop!

But first I'll leave you with this little visual. No matter what the question cream is the correct answer.

Yay! I'm glad that's settled! I like it! Looking forward to the new shop and its goodies.

I'm also glad I already have one of your cool pincushions, since I didn't win one. :)

P.S. Loved the ice cream pics! Levi's a lefty?

Woohoo! I won :) Thank you so much! I really do like the second line to the name - it seems to add your feelings just perfectly! Glad the dilemma is solved. And yes, ice cream can solve any problem - especially double chocolate with chocolate jimmies ;)

Great shop name! Soon you'll be open for business. Your grandchildren are adorable eating their ice cream. I love that Charlotte has an ice cream cone shirt on.

LOVE ice cream! And thanks again for my pincushion!

Well, I leave town and miss out on all the fun. I love the name you chose and the idea for the banner, incorporating the other idea. Good luck in this new adventure!
