  10. Gorgeous! At the moment I am working on a yoyo/suffolk puff quilt (very slowly!), and some little bags and soft toys to give to my nieces and nephews at christmas time. I'm also about to start knitting a vest for my son, but my last knitting project kinda bombed so I'm not holding my breath about finishing this one!

  21. Hi,I'm from Brazil and I have you on my favorites list. I take a look at your blog almost every day, especially because you are a crafter and you speak English :), things that I love. I paint on fabric and I'm working with patchwork appliquées now. I made a lipstick case by hand (because I don't have a machine) yesterday and it turned great!! I'll keep trying fabric projects.

  22. Wow! Was just turned on to this site from a tweet from Amanda! :) I loooove "vintage sheets," and these prints are great! :)

    Right now I'm working on the Little Woo top (Patterns by Figgy) for my daughter. I was actually using knit fabric from a knit sheet, but grrrrr, last night I cut the fabric wrong, so now the project is on hold until I get can more knit fabric! *sigh*

    I can't wait to take a look around this blog! :) Pyrex! Oooh! I have a couple that I've collected, but I'm trying to resist great urge to start a collecting them! I have to force myself to leave them on the shelf at the thrift stores. Especially pink ones! gaaaah!

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! :)

  29. ooooh lovely sheets.....I haven't yet started quilting as am fairly new at sewing, but I just made my sister a laptop sleeve and a few cute lil phone pouches for my girlfriends.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ooo, they are gorgeous vintage sheets - I can see how they'd be your favourites!! I'd love to add these to my vintage sheet collection.

    ReplyDelete
  31. What a great giveaway! I never have much luck finding vintage sheets and I just LOVE them! I've actually been thinking about making a vintage sheet quilt using your plus quilt tutorial, once I add a bit more to my collection :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great giveaway!
    I've been busy busy busy getting ready for my first ever trunk show! I don't normally carry inventory, so I've been sewing my little fingers off for months! No fun quilting for me until the season is over :(

  33. I've been putting up apples from the neighbors' trees for winter pies. Making a log cabin quilt from scraps of any print with animals or animals' skins for my little girl who is enthralled with the idea of growing up to be a zookeeper. And, the thriftstore had a UFO of feedsack flowers appliqued by hand on 5" muslin squares that needed me to finish it. I feel so priviledged to finish these and add a few of my own...like I made some history! LOL!

    OH...my little zookeeper wants a bunny too!

  34. You find the coolest vintage sheets! The ones I seem to run across are usually pretty ratty looking.

    I haven't been sewing much lately because of a home improvement project going on, but last night I made baked apples. Then the doorbell rang unexpectedly and I had company to help me eat them--even better! Yum!

  35. Right now I'm sewing a big bunch of bib/burp cloths and crayon roll-ups for a friend.

    And I want to bake some snickerdoodle cupcakes.

  36. Oooh! That is a lovely give-away!!
    I have been working on some bee blocks today, but my son wants me to get on with the quilt I'm making for him. Let's see what I can do tomorrow...

  37. I just finished up 3 quilt tops and am trying to figure out what I want to do for the backs. So while my brain is working on that I figured I would cut out a billion squares for a quilt-along, lol. Thanks for the chance to enter! =)

  38. I'm busy making a quilt to snuggle under in the winter.

  39. You've turned me on to vintage sheets. I've had a Lone Star quilt center (the star) I did a hundred years ago that I haven't finished and a couple of weeks ago I found the nicest vintage sheet that will so make the field so I can put it on the guest bed. Keep up the inspiration.

  40. I'd love to win! I had the pink ones of these when I was a kid (they were old then, this was the eighties) and I may have also had the blue, but my mother can't find them now, which is saying something considering she never gets rid of anything! I'm working on Denyse Schmidt's Big Zig quilt--the hand quilting is taking forever!

  41. Aw, how lovely! I read your blog everyday...but I usually have a nursing baby in my arms which makes it hard to comment...so I usually only read. I've used your pyrex cleaning tips, as I am also an addict. I'm currently making cloth baby wipes when I have the time to sew. I hope to make some napkins & place-mats in the near future...along with a quilt. Figuring out when to sew with a new little one around is a challenge. I've been cooking a lot of casseroles lately, my favorite being Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole. :) Thanks for all you do! Definitely one of my favorite blogs. (& flickr accounts!)

  44. I am currently making a quilt tote and have the front piecing done, and half-way done on the back. However, I love the colors and fabrics so much, I can't decide if I want to make an entire quilt!

  45. I am currently sewing together some blocks for a quilt using the "Beyond The Sea" fabric. It's getting cooler in the Midwest, so I'm looking at fixing some soup soon. :D

  46. So, I finally decided to comment, and not just to win pretty vintage sheets :) I found you on flickr and subscribed to your blog a few months ago or so. You have such a great eye! I enjoy your photos and all the color in your posts!

    I'm currently working on my kid's Halloween costume. It involves a lot of hand sewing. It is not as fun as I thought it would be. However, he'll be cute cute cute when he's wearing it for that one day this year!

    you can find me here:

  64. I bought a box full of old sheets and pillowcases at an auction a few weeks ago, but they arent nearly as pretty as what you find!
    Question: Do you wash your sheets in anything special to make them stiffer, or to get the old lady smell out of them? Id appreciate any tips you might have!
