A thrifty find!

While browsing through my local charity shop yesterday, I found these brilliant purple retro daisy single bed sheets for a measly six dollars! Yay! They will make perfect backing fabric for my vintage squares quilts and save me heaps, another thrifty bargain. One is a little faded, but I don't think that is going to worry me at all. I am about a third of the way through quilt top number two, it will be similar, but not the same as the first.

I am loving this rediscovery of my sewing hobby which has been lying dormant for a couple of years. Scrap booking took over, because I love the instant results of a 12 x 12 inch page, where a quilt can take months, even years, to complete. So patchwork is back in vogue at Summerleigh, although scrapping will still be ongoing.

Watch this space.

Oooh, patchwork has started in this house here too, lord knows if I'm actually going to get anything actually made but hey, I've done a bit of playing so far and love it. Good for you though, crafting is great isn't it.
