Vintage Sheets......

Here are a pile of vintage sheets

Oh & here are some more...


and some more

Yep here comes another pile...


& look here is a wardrobe full of them

Aren't they lovely!

This is what I spent some of my time on the weekend sorting. It used to be bigger, but out of love for Mr Spunky who started to think I was having some sort of affair with my fabric :) I downsized to a neater size - well something that the wardrobe can actually contain!

I have usually used my vintage linen for clothing, but have an itching to do a few patchwork quilts..I have however started with something a little smaller & will hopefully post a pic soon.

Oh my..I have vintage sheet envy. These are fantatsic. It must have been hard to downsize?

Sam, you must come & visit & pinch from it sometime!
Kelly it was very hard to get rid of some of them - esp as they are not easy to come across.

OK Need your address, flloor plan, key and a time when your house will be empty so I can back the trailer in without anyone see me load that pile of gorgeousness into it and then run as fast as I can.
