A well meaning friend has just passed on to me some ugly fat quarters that she found in a charity shop. There were two of each of the following ... upon seeing them I realised just why they were there!
|Perhaps my friend does not like me!|
So there are eight fat quarters of some fairly ugly fabrics up for grabs. (I will not be surprised to get little or no response to this particular post!)
I was thinking about dreadful gifts that I have received in the past and wonder just what awful gifts have you been given?
My most memorable (and disappointing) gift was given to me by my first husband when I had just passed my driving test. I adored 2CV Citroen Dyanes and always felt in my hippie days that I should be driving around in one ... an orange one!
|Isn't it cute?|
So ... he bought an old and decrepid grey one and unbeknown to me hand-painted it a bright and gorgeous orange and parked it right outside our house ... I was delighted and rushed out into the street and opened the drivers door - which promptly fell off into the road.
The car was undriveable, dangerous and rusty as hell and was immediately sent off to a friend whose parents owned a farm - where it became a chicken coop! I was desolate.
Now just what was your worst present?
Please give us all a laugh and earn yourself some ugly fat quarters by leaving the tale in my message box. We shall laugh at your responses until Sunday 12th and then you too could be the unlucky one to receive yet another ugly gift.
