Ugly Fat 1/4 Not!

Isn't it incredible how one person can look at something and see nothing, and another person can look at it and see everything? I think that may have happened to both Christine and I when we did our ugly fat 1/4 swap!
Firstly, I'd like to thank Jenny and Fiona for such an unusual and fun blog swap! The idea was to send a fat quarter that you just couldn't seem to use, along with some buttons and trim, to your partner. They then added a fat quarter of their own, and made it all up into something beautiful! Kind of like the Ugly Duckling story!
So Christine sent this to me -And I sent this to Christine -This is what I made for her using her ugly fat 1/4 -And this is what she made for me using mine!!! -A gorgeous thread catcher with pincushion and a drawstring bag, both of which will be used till they're ragged!The thread catcher is reversible! How cool is that? Oh Christine, how could you know me so well when we haven't even met?! I love them, thank you a million times!!!

Oh Amanda, Just when I was oohing and ahhing over these amazing make-overs, I saw it with a capitol "S". Scrolling very quickly I enjoyed the beautiful butterflies and, OMG your Easter animals are beyond cute. They have the perfect Amanda touch to them. Sweet as can be in their tree. Thank goodness I will now take their image off to bed with me instead of the "S" one! Have a good week ahead! E
