I know all of you people out there in blogland have been dying to know what I got for Christmas. Well, your wait is finally over. First of all, on Christmas morning I opened the front door to my lovely home and felt gratitude for one of the best presents I’ve ever received. I also received a few other fun little quilty things that are very handy to have on hand. (Somewhat telling that it’s the seam-ripper that is already out of it’s packaging.)
As you’re admiring this picture I know what you’re thinking. “Sure those are some great notions, but what is that wonderful vintage fabric underneath them??”
Well, let me show you what my wonderful mother-in-law sent me. Vintage sheets! Not only was I excited to receive such beauties, but I was so touched by the personalized gift. I am quite sure no one else on her shopping list wanted old, thrift-store bed sheets. But she knew that I did and she spent the time to track some beauties down and send them all the way from Maryland just for me!
(Sorry you can’t see more.
I had to preserve it’s authenticity – I didn’t even want to unfold it all the way.)
The nice thing about no one else really being as excited about this particular gift
is that no one in my family has tried to steal them (unlike my chocolate orange which my
8-year-old ate with out telling me. But my nice husband let me have his, so I’m okay.)
Thank you again Rosemary!
