Vintage Sheet Swap

I participated in a vintage sheet swap recently.  I sent 27 of the VS FQ's I had at home and received 27 different  ones in return.  This is what I received.

I have been getting ready for our BIG Halloween party on Saturday. My sewing room has been totally picked up and everything put away. That took a long time! I will take a picture of it on the day of the party. I now have to go and finish the rest of the shopping for the party today too. I have already baked 8 dozen cookies! I hope it doesn't rain the night of the party.

A few weeks ago my DH came home with a little gift for me. I LOVE Halloween and he found the neatest Jack-o-Lantern.
It is painted pottery. Very unique, I love it!!  You put a candle inside so it will light up!!

I don't know if I will have anything to blog about until after the party so if not, have a great weekend and we will talk soon! ~XOP~

Lovely vintage sheets FQs you got!

Hard for me to get "into" the vintage sheet thing since I remember a lot of the printed sheets... still have a couple of pillow cases from the late 60s and early 70s.... they ain't "vintage" to me... *lol* ...mebbe b/c I'm vintage now?

I agree with Impera_Magna...I have to lolrof (Pam, you taught me this lettering!). I see these vintage sheets and I have to look in the mirror and "think" vintage! =D

Great pumpkin, btw =)

I think I was in that swap! I recognize some of these that I also got back, and a few of yours that were part of my stash. My head is spinning with ideas on new sewing projects. :)

Have a wonderful party, Pam, I love your new pumpkin, that is gorgeous!!

I must admit, I have fallen for vintage sheets--but not just as fabric. I've discovered, that some seem to feel softer and I'm using them!! Others, I'm collecting for a quilt. A swap is a great idea, because sheets give me way more of a fabric than I need.
