I have a friend who actually lives in woods in a little home made wood cabin and they are now a little family . A baby boy named Badger has now joined them .. I woke one morning with this epiphany ! All the ' ugly ' fabrics were mostly plaids and tartans .. I sat down at that machine at 6am and began , not knowing where I was going to end up .. This is how the ugly duckling fabrics grew into a beautiful swan lol !
                  Well ? What ya think ladies ?

                    That is really beautiful. You did a great job with all that "ugly" (not) fabric.
