    What a coincidence! The fabric I ALMOST chose was nearly identical to the rust one! I sent something else since I didn't have quite enough of it, but it's funny how they almost match!
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here.

    Moonrise, maybe I should send that piece to you so you have two that go together, LOL! Actually, the mustard and rust go together quite well, but with nothing else...I tried it to see if I could maybe make a nice fall walling hanging or something. I don't like those colors, so that's probably why they don't go with anything else in my stash but each other! So, two votes for the rust. Actually, I think it would make a nice barn (suggestion for anybody who might get it if I send it) I originally had over 2 yards of the mustard and have managed to give way most of it to gals who like mustard color fabric. I've also used it to make rice bags and then covered it with pretty fabric. Why waste nice plain muslin when I could use that up! No other pictures folks?

    I would like to join, I have some really ugly fabric, my sister goes to yard sales and sends me fabric when ever she sees it! Most of the time it is pretty nice, but sometimes I have to wonder "what was she thinking?"

    Now if someone had a swap for ugly polyester!!! LOL, why do I keep it? My husband can't use it for rags and even the cats won't sleep on it!

    Marybeth, you definitely need to through the polyester away....or donate it to someone else. It's taking up space that could be occupied by cotton and wool! Just think of it as fat and yourself as the cosmetic surgeon.....liposuction here we come......vroooooommmmmm.

    Weathervanes! I think that's kinda cool. One woman's ugly is another woman's cool!

    I like the weathervanes, at least the part we can see! Marybeth, those trees are actually ugly!! Good choice, now I'm going to go see if I have an ugly enough piece and I'll join with you all!
