in other exciting news, i joined a swap, and you should too!
Jen at Rosey Little Things is organizing a Vintage Sheet Fat Quarter Swap, signups end June 12th - or when the number of participants hits 50. click on the image below to check it out!
i love vintage sheets so much. i've been buying them for quite a while now (it just occurred to me that i don't think i ever posted the patchwork vintage sheet duvet cover i made my friend kate...) and using them for various small projects, like the Pillowcase Apron.
after i saw the swap and signed up, i decided to go thrifting on wednesday looking for more! i went a leeetle bit overboard with the thrifting (pyrex!! fabric!! hankies!!), but i did manage to find a bunch more sheets. multiple washing machine loads later, they were ready to be cut out. i started cutting them out last night, but after accidentally cutting 4 pillowcases (stacked on top of each other) 20" instead of 21", i decided it was time for bed!
i woke up really early this morning for some odd reason, so i decided to cut the rest out - correctly this time! i mailed them off when i mailed the giveaway prizes, the earliest i've EVER been for a swap!!
aren't they pretty?

i have all these delicious scraps sitting next to my cutting board, calling to me.... i have so many other things to sew, but oh, they're so pretty!!
i'm really excited about this! if anyone's into a personal swap in addition to the rosey little things swap, let me know! i'd love to get more shades of green and blue in my collection.
