So it's 30-something degrees, a public holiday,and you have no air-con....what do you do? Go to Ikea! I originally wanted to look at their fabrics; I need 9 yards for a quilt back and had heard of other bloggers using Ikea fabrics for their backings. I'd seen one online that I liked the look of, so the hot afternoon was the perfect excuse!
Instead I found a few other goodies that I'd love to bring home. I really love this turquoise trolley! It can be used in the kitchen, to store books, or even as a bedside table. I think it'd look great full of fabric...if only I had somewhere for it!
I also found this cute rug; I love a paisley print and this one is quite eye-catching.
I finally found my way to the fabric department, and discovered the fabric I'd been eyeing off was a larger print than expected. So no luck there. But I did buy a couple of meters of stripey decorator-weight fabric which I'll stash away until I find the perfect use for it.
I still need to choose a backing for my I Heart You quilt; any suggestions?
