I'm giving away some horrid fabric!

I was browsing an opshop the other day and came across what I think, is some very hidious fabric.... and then I bought it! What made me do this you may ask? Well.. I just thought that maybe somebody, anybody, might just like it! So here it is.. in all it's ugliness......
Who wants it?
When I first grabbed it, it looked like terry towelling through the plastic bag, but when I opened it at home, I discovered it was good ol' corduroy!

So, this awful piece of fabric has now become my giveaway. Mention in a comment what you would do with it.. and I'll pick the best one. If nobody has any use for it, I'll be dumping it! I can't stand the sight of it anymore!
Oh yes, it measures approximately 100cm x 30cm

and while you're at it.. take a look at this fab "girls dress patterns" giveaway!

Cheers, Raewyn

table tents... a smashing idea!

Don't you think this is the most smashing idea ever? I don't know why nobody thought of this idea ages ago... but nobody did, until these people did. I made this one for my kids the other day. I know it still needs some major work done on it, but thought I'd share the idea anyway. Thinking of jazzing it up with flowers and butterflies... and then my son wants a duck pond with fish and frogs and ducks frolicking in it - so that's the plan!

The kids love it! Only problem is... I sew on this table.. so it's causing me major grief! I'll have to make up a roster... giving us all a bit of table time!

Have a happy weekend everybody! xox
