Vintage sheets and lots of crafting

Can't believe I've been away so long again! ! Hey ho,life has its ups and downs and we had a fair few family difficulties over the summer including, not so good A level results and having a massive shock that a close member of our extended family had cancer, which was awful, but  luckily after surgery and radiotherapy, that beloved family member is still with us and hopefully fully recovered.
 I totally lost my blogging mojo.But for the past month I keep meaning to write a blog post and share what I've been up to!

I have been collecting vintage sheets for a few years but they are becoming harder to find but last week I was so lucky to find 4 at once with gorgeous and vibrant prints for their age!I nearly skipped out of the charity shop! So I have been busy making Reto Kittens..
I have lots of little nieces, so I thought they'd make cute  stocking fillers,( the kittens not the nieces, although they are lovely)This blue floral is my favourite at the mo!
There's my new Greengate teatowel (bought it at Girls Own in Bridport, our summer holiday) as a backdrop

I've been busy with my crochet too,making granny bunting and Peter Pan collars.

from this fabulous free pattern.It's a gorgeous blog too if you'd like to take a peek!

Will post pictures of the collars soon, just got to pop the buttons on.
Hey the Sun has just come out! Have a lovely day, I'll hopefully be catching up with you all soon!
