I just can't help myself...I think I have a problem....

This is a photo of a sunrise a few days ago - the camera didn't pick up on the most brilliant red/pink and for some reason I could look at it full on and not go blind, well, not straight away lol!


Firstly, my problem of op-shopping....been pretty good lately and not stopped the car at a screeching halt the first sign of ".....Op-......." out of the corner of my eye....

been pretty good lately at not getting just anything because, well, it was old and unloved and I wanted to give it a home once more.....

been pretty good lately at not adding to the pile of sheets in pretty colours, sitting in the upstairs hallway in full view of myself and family, reminding me to ''just do something with them"

been absolutely lousy in resisting one more swap.....what can I say?

Chaletgirl is determined to keep herself fit and healthy by walking to the post office every other hour (surely?) by running another swap - this time a Vintage Sheet Swap.

What else can I do, than sign my life away.... again!

Of course this means.....Op-Shop Hunting! No, I shall resist because the cute old suitcase I bought to hold my stuff can't hold my stuff no longer, no sir!

I shall think of the overbearing weight of the material on its poor old bones and DeStash!!!





I can't get my photo off my phone - but it looks like this one!
Lovely and very enjoyable girly chat over lunch with Janelle, Kylie, Jan, Katherine and her kidlets - crafty girly chat that is....fabric, material, sewing....you know...a little slice of heaven!
Boy, what lovely people they all are! Hope we can all catch up again soon! With Janelle on speaker phone!

I don't know how you find such gorgeous sheeting. I don't seem to have any luck in the linen departments when I op.

Kylie is lovely isn't she. You know our kids go to school together. Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

I'm so glad to see I am not the only one that becomes obsessed with things like old sheets. You already have a great haul there!

It was such a Joy to have lunch with you! I am home again, and I will keep you posted when more yummy fabric arrives at work.

Great sheets! The hard part will be picking just 40 FQ to send in to swap, or so is my experience...

Oh you must be the reason I can never find any old sheets when I go hunting, hehe.
