Oh Sheet!

I love clean sheets, don't you?
In fact, if money was no object and I could pick one frivolous thing to do it would be fresh, clean sheets every day!

I have a new obsession with sheets...vintage and retro sheets.

I bought four great sets from a friend's yard sale. I have found oddballs at thrift stores and various yard sales. 

don't worry, I immediately wash them...the whole bedbug thing is sort of freaking me out!



How awesome are these all stacked up together?  

The colors!



The pretty florals


The wonderful stripes



The crisp, worn cotton


I'm on a quest for more.  

Why you ask?

Because I plan on making one of these lovely ruffly quilt. 
It will be my winter project and my goal is to make one in a queen size for my bed.
(I know, tis a lofty goal!)

Isn't it delightful???!!!  

I purchased the pattern on Etsy.  It's a pdf and very detailed and easy to follow.

What are your latest crafty/vintage obsessions??

PS for my local readers...have any of these - any size - you want to get rid of?

The brighter, gaudier, and crazier looking the better!

That will be so pretty, & yes, I'm sure it will take awhile to complete! If anyone can do it, though, it's you! :-)

OHMYGOODNESS! I love it! I want one! Only I want it all in one color, but I LOVE IT! And I want your scraps. :) I love old sheets...my MIL is giving me a bunch...I'll see if there's anything good in the stuff she gives me & maybe you'll get a treat in the mail...you know, once I can walk again with just a shoe on my foot.
