Ambigrams

Found a really cool site that quilters and crafters might be interested in:

Ambigram Generator Site

You type in a word, and it will show you what that word would look like as an ambigram, a word that reads the same upside down. I typed in quilting, and here's the ambigram for quilting:



It also does two words... so that upside down one turns into the other. Can you read this set?



Might be fun for a table runner or something... where people would sit on either side... it'd be right side up to everyone. Or a fabric postcard - you wouldn't know which side was up! :)

And I'm wondering how Tonya would use this with her letters too - seems like you could get really creative with ambigrams.

I'm spending my morning catching up on all of the blogging that everyone's been doing the past few weeks. You've had some terrific posts, ForestJane! Hope you don't mind my combining:

Love the Halloween cats! They're very photogenic!

It's great seeing the kids in action at your school. Education need not be boring...and you've proved that very well!

Your Leaves quilt turned out delightful! Love that backing too!

And what a great spin on the chick pincushion! YOu're so clever. Did you come up with a name?!
