Thing-a-Day 6  

Mmmmm... Linen sheets. They're hella expensive to buy, but oh so lovely. I made the slate blue set below - one flat, one fitted, and two pillowcases. The white pillowcases are also linen, but purchased.

For the record, this is why I adore TaD. This was another project that had been in the to do queue for at least three years! It's not a huge project, just one I needed to commit to doing.

We'll see how these sheets work and if it goes well, I also have some light blue.

Where the heck did you get linen wide enough for sheets? That is sinful! And another sin - envy...

I have my magical sources... :)

One of said sources had a limited-time availability of 90" wide linen a few years ago. I bought enough to make a few sets, but this was the first one I actually completed. I have some light blue and cream linen for additional sets.

Come to think of it, I could probably be convinced to part with the cream piece, if you wanted to try your hand at it too... I have enough for a Queen bed.

I was going to ask the same thing...where'd you find linen wide enough?
Linen sheets... I slept on linen at WW last year and it was sooooo lovely.

I have not heard back from R, and you were the second to express admiration... I have a cream piece I'm willing to part with, if you wanted to try your hand at it too... I have enough for a Queen bed (top and fitted sheet plus 2 pillow cases).

Niiiice! That was one of the first project you'd ever told me about. It's very neat to see its culmination! :) Sleep well!

Yoiks... I guess it has been that long. *sigh* Well, like I said, one major reason to love the TaD challenge.
