An Evening Out!!!

DD came home from work last night and announced that we were off to Ikea. I didn't argue....lol......I love Ikea.
I fell in love with three kitchens, two bedrooms, four living rooms and a couple of spaces set out as work/craft rooms...lol.
I shocked myself with the fabrics I bought to make the Beatrice apron/dress. One plain but two......well let's just say....you will need your sunglasses when I show the finished garments.
There was also a purchase of a gorgeous set of little red steps for the kitchen to help with reaching the top of the cupboards and the windows when they need cleaning.
DD was over the moon to find the perfect curtains for her bedroom which has a definite New York theme going on in greys and blacks.
They will be way too long for her window (they only sell them in one size) but I will alter them and have enough fabric left to make her a quilted rug.

The new sewing machine was set up and tried when we got back....oh my days....it is really great and I am loving that top loading bobbin.
No plans to go anywhere tonight so I will get on with the quilt after tea and see how we go.

Tea will be quick and easy. Andy fancies chips so I will do a mushroom omelette with them and some peas and that should finish off the bargain mushrooms I got the other day. They have made two large boxes of mushroom soup, three portions of creamy garlic mushrooms and today will make omelettes for three of us.
Bargainous indeed.

Just a bit of fluffing and tidying to do now and then I really need to find somewhere to put all this new fabric as the drawer set is rather full.
The sun is trying to come out here but not quite making it.
Hope it is where you are.

  1. It did make me smile when you said about the rooms you loved.....an Ikea house is needed! No Ikea anywhere near us so never been to one.

  2. You could get seriously lost in Ikea if you didn't follow the arrows. Have a little time to kill as have come shopping to Booker for toilet rolls without my purse! Off to see a new learner in a while so not a wasted journey thankfully. x

    1. Oh no....how many times have I done that. My worst trick though is getting to the checkout and finding I have left my purse in the car and Roz has to go and fetch it. Luckily we do self scan in T***o so I am not holding anybody up.
      Glad your journey isn't totally wasted.
      Have a lovely day.
      Hugs-x-

  5. Very foggy here again today but it was the same yesterday and only lasted the morning. Then the sun came out and it was beautiful! We're off to Ikea this afternoon. Just a 12 minute drive down the highway from us. Lots of fun to browse and get ideas. Today, I have a small list of items to pick up. Can't wait! Have a great day. X Chy

    1. I feel so lucky that ours isn't a million miles away and doesn't require a whole day trip to go.
      They have lots of new stuff and new room settings that are well worth a look-x-
