    This Fabric spoke to me!

    I went to Wallmart the other day and this was on the clearance rack, well it said please help me become something beautiful so I took six yards with every intention of making a OBW, cut some triangles of course used the wrong templet and had to cut them a tad smaller with the right trangle 60 degree. after moving around some hexes I thought I would try to put spacers in ,my first time doing this and boy am I happy with what I have so far, I just had to share, Hope you like my own ugly challenge. I still have many more to cut and make but just wanted to share what I had so far.

    Wow, nice job on your challenge. It's really coming along nicely. Look forward to seeing it on completion.
    10-2-12, the lucky day I became a granny! I just love my Avatar photo. That is my grandson. He has his hands thrown up in childish abandon trying to catch bubbles. Even though you can't see his face clearly, the look on his face steals my heart. It's my favorite.

    I'm always amazed at how a fabric can change by just the way you cut it up and sew it back together. Your OBW is looking great!

    And making something very beautiful you are. The fabric knew all along its potential.
