    @Craftykk I sent you a PM with my address to send the fabric to.

    I am home and didn't receive any more fabrics (we have locked mailboxes) just so any of you that have sent them out I didn't get anything.

    My mother has joined us in this also. She has a profile on here but she is brand new here. This should be fun to have her join us. This is her ugly fabric.

    One of the biggest joys for me in quilting is the challenge of creating....gives me a fun way to exercise my brain and make something beautiful. Conquering a "problem" is so much fun. I think that's why I resist buying quilt kits--little challenge for me. Maybe someday I'll buy one that involves challenging piecing in order to learn something new. Anyway, I can't wait to see what I get and what I can do with it!

    I completely agree with you. Gets those creative juices flowing.

    Melinda, Where did your Mom get that fabric! LOL, my Husband saw it and said he wants me to make him a table cover out of it! Poker night I guess! Although they don't do it here, because they know I would beat them!... We have board games once a month with my husbands family, it is really fun, a nice break from the computer or TV.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I think she said it came from a fabric lot she bought from a lady or she found it at a thrift store. I am attaching pictures of the name of the fabric and manufacturer.

    If marytodd wants that fabric badly enough to go BUY some, I would be fine with her getting that piece instead of a random piece.

    Ok Marytodd....I spoke with my mother and she has 29 inches of the fabric so she is sending it to me. I will add it with what I have and my mother is sending me another ugly fabric. I will put both pieces of this fabric in your envelope and it is yours to use as you please. Enjoy it.

    That's nice of you and your mother Nexxus.

    On another note, by accident, fabric.com sent me 1/2 yd. of ugly fabric that coordinates beautifull with the burnt sienna piece I sent for this swap! Why now! Ahhhh, ha, ha . I still have a very small piece of the burnt sienna piece, but, if whoever wants this other half yard, let me know!

    I sent my fabric yesterday - I would have taken a picture but I was afraid it would break the camera I can only plead temporary insanity or momentary color-blindness. Whatever I get back HAS to be better than what I sent!

    Will you post a group picture of all the uglies before you send them onto their new owners?

    Oh, not you don't what's the point of sending the ugly fabric out if it's going to find its way back to us when all is said and done? Shudder!
