Pretty Uglies

Elyte has received her parcel, it's my creation from her "ugly" piece of fabric for the Ugly swap hosted by Fiona and Jen. Not sure if I've made it any better but it's fun to be challenged and use colours I don't normally use. Elyte says she likes it (I think she's be super nice!). My parcel from Elyte has arrived too but unfortunately my DH has taken my camera for a couple of days to the Gemboree in Devonport (It's an annual rock and mineral show held in Australia). Elyte has the talent for this, she has made me a gorgeous zippered pouch and accessories plus my first ever tea cosy. So give me a couple of days and I'll post a pic because they're worth seeing!! Thank-you Elyte for being a marvellous swap partner! Thanks also to Fiona and Jen for being great swap mummas!

I really am over the moon about my ugly. Although it was not an attractive piece of cloth, it was given to me by my sister from the US who I really miss and it reminds me of her. So thank you for making it pretty and useful and it was beautifully made. And thanks for making me sound good! Hee hee!

I think you completely de-uglified that fabric. What a great little gift. I really liked the large polka-dot accent you added. It really draws out the black and white dots on the focus fabric. Nice!
