Sunday Stash #3

It's been one fabric stash after another for me of late. I certainly haven't been holding back on that front.

I was in Ikea yesterday and picked up a couple more. They've a fantastic collection at the moment.

I really couldn't resist the linen and at £3.99/m I know I'll be back for more. It's ready hemmed for a 45cm wide table runner. I bought 2.5m for our kitchen table and have plans to embroider some patterns onto it.

This red one had literally just been put on the shelves - part of their new Christmas range. Isn't it fab?


I'm off now to sew some designs...I'll let you know how it turns out.

I love Ikea, if I can brave the crowds and have the patience to find staff to weigh my fabric, great to hear about their linen though, might have to pop along at the weekend. Bx
