Now for our "ugly" fabric creations. A couple months ago we each brought some "ugly" fabric in a brown paper bag, a piece of fabric we always seemed to pass over and never use from our stash. We each randomly picked brown paper bags and took them home. Our mission was to make something beautiful from something "ugly" and bring it back wrapped for its original owner at our Christmas meeting. Here are the results. They are all so creative!! You'll have a hard time finding the "ugly" fabric.

Then we had a wonderful luncheon. Tracey made us French dip sandwiches and others brought salads and desserts. We also had great door prizes this month-there was something for everyone! Thank you Tracey for hosting. We had a fun time.
