I'm back! From IKEA! Love that store! But more about that in a minute.
I have just finished cutting up lots of nine patch squares to "re-arrange" for a quilt - our third grandson is due in April, so I'm making him a Paddington Bear quilt - something that Susanne can use for changing him, or for just "lying around on" (baby, not Susanne!). It's all very exciting really.
Our trip to IKEA was most productive! Arrived before they opened. Those Vikings are very canny - restaurant opens early, so in we sailed with our IKEA Family card - free bottomless coffee and a couple of little cinnamon scrolly things.
Then it was shopping time. We wondered why everyone was walking towards us until we noticed that we were going in the opposite direction to the arrows on the floor!
As you can see, we bought the shelving for the workroom, and here it is ready to be put together. David couldn't make it any cheaper from scratch - clever marketing strategy of IKEA to flat pack everything.
But I wonder how many marriages are put at risk at the assembly stage?!?
Our wood heater is in place, but not installed yet - looking forward to those cosy Winter nights with my sewing! (Ignore the unfinished retaining wall and the pile of rubbish!)
By the way, I painted the floor to seal it before the carpet is laid.
The tin was marked "beige".
I don't think so!
It's baby poo yellow!
At least it will be unseen and out of sight!
P.S. We'll be going back to IKEA for a "gadget" trip - love their gadgets!
P.P.S. Found this at IGA - "a tempting little box of gorgeously indulgent pleasures for cheeky little devils to enjoy" (that's what it says on the box). So I bought one of each flavour. Lovely with coffee!!!!
