weekly stash report

My youngest son has an imaginary snake which is from Canada and has rabies. It doesn't seem to have a name -- he calls it "rabid snake from Canada." I would love to know how he came up with that one!

We've had a handful of nice days and althought I can't see anything around us blooming, the bees are coming back to the hive loaded down with pollen. They seem to have made it through the winter, but it's still too cold to do a hive inspection.

Charm About You

Have you seen the Fugly Fabric Party over at Charm About You? It's going on until Valentine's Day. A lot of cute fabric is being given away, and a lot of fabric that looks perfectly serviceable. There's a little bit of ugly stuff there, but nothing that competes with the gambling cartoon coyotes I found in one of my scrap bags. I really should've taken a picture of that stuff before I cut it into little bits and used it in baby quilts!

What do you do with your own ugly fabric -- use it? Or toss it? Or are you one of those quilters who carefully chooses every piece and doesn't wind up with these challenges?

Like you, I cut up ugly fabric until it is usable for its color. But then what is ugly fabric - LOL.

Haha! The above comment made me laugh -- I was just thinking that I have a hard time calling any fabric (in my possession) ugly! :)

I didn't know that we had any rabid snakes here in Canada. The imagination of kids is really something. Anyway, I do have some really ugly fabric in my stash and to this day when I look at it, I still think "What was I thinking?". I haven't cut it up yet and there's no hope it will ever be nice fabric. No one likes it!
