Yesterday I took my ex mother in law in to the op shop to look at a lampshade we thought might be suitable for her standard lamp. The lampshade wasn't to her taste so we browsed for a few minutes and she found some books to buy. I showed her one of the lovelies I had seen the day before and she said she would buy it for me! Yayyyyy for my lovely ex mother in law.
The item in question was a gorgeous vintage sheet.
- Keep it as is and use it on a bed in the spare room matched with a plain white sheet. Alas it is only a single bed size.
- Keep it whole and use as backing for a quilt
- Cut it up and make cushions out of it. If i choose this option do I just use this fabric and get fancy with piping or ruffles or do I seek out matching/complementary fabrics and make some patchwork?
Since my ex mother in law paid for the lovely sheet I scrounged enough change from my purse to buy two other items that had caught my eye.
I found a pair of lovely white pillow cases for just $2.99. They are machine embroidered but wonderful quality and oh so white!
The other item was this adorable doiley/tray cloth.
wishing you sunshine in your shadows
