Oh my what a month! If you follow me on twitter (@MaryEmmens) or on facebook you may well have already seen these photographs.
bundle mountain were all from one charity shop last Friday morning. I had just been to the post office to drop off some Etsy orders and the children had asked if we could go in the charity shops on the way home. So I had to check out the linens and I saw a bit of purple sheet peeking out of a box which normally only contains solid colour sheets. Imagine my delight and surprise when I pulled out sheet after sheet! There were 11 in total!
On Saturday I was meeting up with a bunch of lovely sewing ladies, Kerry, Fiona, Vivienne, Jo, Laurel and Sara. Walking past the charity shop I thought I’d better have a quick look in and what did I find? Yes you’ve guessed it there were more:
5 sheets and 11 pillowcases! I didn’t want to carry them all the way back and forth to our meet-up so a quick call to my wonderful husband and he agreed he would walk up with the children and pick them up for me!
So here’s a summary of fabric I ‘found’ in July, boosted by the last weekends finds! There are a couple of Ikea pieces in there so not vintage but I’m sure the cot duvet cover will be great for something, backing baby quilts maybe?
As a result of all this excess I’m thinking about putting fat quarter bundles in my Etsy shop. What would you prefer to see, bundles of one colour or a mix?
I would love to know what you think.
I don’t think that any of this means that I’ll stop searching though!
