Parcels in the Post and Beautiful Blogs......

 
I LOVE Parcels in the Post, don't you? Especially when they arrive in polka dots! Would you like to have a look inside? Of course you do, you're as nosy as I am!
 
 
Some lovely yarny goods from Lisa at Bobo Bun, when I saw she had a sale in her Etsy shop I thought, why not.......a few days later a little pin cushion, that looks good enough to eat (might give me indigestion though!) and the sweetest little hat for boiled eggs, arrived!
Most of you will already know her Beautiful Blog but if you don't it's well worth a visit! Thank you Lisa for these little lovelies!
 
Now, I'm getting a bit of a taste for Liberty Prints at the moment, remember these?
 
 
Well I also noticed Messy Jessy had a sale on....so what's a girl to do?
 
 
Order some more of course! I'm going to enjoy putting these with my vintage sheets! They are delicious aren't they!
 
I've also had a little parcel from Oooh Betty, no I'm not being greedy, this one is a pressie so I can't show at the moment, but will reveal soon (little clue, it's something in a box!)....But I can show you these that came with it, little peg dolls...
 
 
Little Bea nabbed these.....
 
Now as you know, I'm getting into this.......
 
 
And, as I had a little free time yesterday, I decided to have my Bunny Mummy Day! It was actually only a couple of hours, but what lovely hours they were.........
 
 
Plenty of tea, bit of music, and lots of crochet inspiration! Jackie truly has a Beautiful Blog! There's not just crochet, as lovely as that is, but nature, crafts, camping (I love camping!), gardening, cooking....the list goes on! I read it right from the beginning, it's great to see how someone's blog grows and develops. Please visit and see for yourself!
 
Hello to all of those who have just found Vintage Sheet Addict, thank you for visiting!
 
Don't forget I'm having a Winter sale in my Etsy shop, 15% off, just put WINTER15 at checkout, if you mention you read my blog, I'll pop a bit extra in! I've listed my vintage sheets and pillowcases. If put a 'Pick Your Own' fabric bundle listing on too! You pick, I mix!
 
Bye for now, it's snowing here.........keep safe and warm all of you in the snow! Thanks for popping by, and thank you so much for leaving me your thoughts!

  14. Ooh you are doing brilliant, are you enjoying your crochet? I thought starting with one big thing rather than individual squares might help with my motivation!! Your goodies are gorgeous - I didn't realise Lisa had a sale on! Off to go check it out xx

  19. Hello Ada! Thank you so much for stopping by Creative Breathing. What a pleasure to visit your blog. A vintage sheet addict, oh my gosh, wonderful! Your beginning afghan colors are so pretty. May I ask what type of yarn you like to use? I'm looking to begin an afghan and am not at all happy with the 4ply from the craft store. Thank you again so much for your kind comment. Elizabeth

  28. What beautiful parcels to get in the post. What a lucky lady you are!! I love Liberty material too. The colours are always so enticing, it's often hard to resist.
    I had mentioned a few crochet books for beginners that I used to learn. If would wish I could send them on to you. They were very helpful to me when I started and you are more than welcome to them. Just mail me on your address, and i'll Zoom them off to you.
