A little over four years ago Hubby Tony and I upgraded to a queen sized mattress. Since that time I've made the bed using the original sheets purchased at a thrift store (percale in the warm weather, and flannel when it turned cold). As you might imagine, they were getting a little threadbare.
This spring I invested in some lovely pima cotton sheets, which are soft, smooth, and luxurious. And as an added bonus, there are tags inside the fitted sheet that say "Long Side" and "Short Side" which help immensely when putting it on the bed. No more guessing which side goes where.
I hope I can find something similar when it's time to get a new set of flannels this fall.
