I wasn't going to announce this, preferring instead to let the day roll on by like any other... BUT... as Lucy rudely chose today as the most fitting for her Fugly Fabric Party, due to it's own inherent ugliness, I couldn't sit idly by. You see, Tuesday 7th February 2012 is rather a special moment in the history of Erin - it is my 30th birthday. Yep, I am officially saying goodbye to my twenties and hello to terrific, fabulous, awesome thirty. Rather than dreading this moment, as I know so many do, I am actually super-excited about embracing this new chapter in my life. Bring it on, I say!
At this point it would've probably been the done thing to include a baby pic or the like (you know, to prove I was little and cute at some point in the past) but I can't find one anywhere (and that is saying something because I am currently at my parents'...). So, instead, this photo of me totally rocking that bonnet will have to suffice.

Anyway, to celebrate this not-so-fugly occassion I am giving one lucky reader a Happy Birthday present from me to you. Someone will receive not one but TWO charm packs made especially for the Fugly Fabric Party. Fun!
|Yes, that is DS - soooo not fugly!|
I would like to think that they are largely comprised of un-fugly fabric but each to their own, really. These things are a matter of personal taste afterall. Before you enter, though, just be warned that they are an eclectic mix of scraps and not a beautifully sorted arrangement. I may have spent hours rummaging, cutting and ironing but not a single second went into colour matching or the like. So, to give you a very rough idea, here is an example of a few of the fabrics -
Well there you have it. An opportunity to win eighty 5" squares of assorted fabric scraps, all of quilting-weight cotton, of course. It's really a once in a lifetime kind of deal. No, seriously, it is that
