No trade show preparations are quite complete without the necessary trip to Ikea, King of storage and accessories solutions. I headed there this morning to purchase these, but obviously a trip to Ikea is equally never complete without a visit to the fabric department.

Boy was I in for a treat today. I needed some more white cotton for show makes and Lenda is my fabric of choice. Not only did I pick up metres (yes, metres) of this, but my timing was perfect as today saw the re-arrival of Aina, the linen that Ikea used to stock and hasn't been available for a long time. I picked up some of this in white and was over the moon to see that they are also stocking it in grey.

The most perfect grey linen EVER. I've been after a good grey linen and haven't been able to find one that works for me and I think I may just have found it.

I'd almost walked away, when this beautiful grey rose caught my eye and it seemed rude to walk on by. It's even more gorgeous in the flesh and is going to be turned into some lovely summer cushions for our bed just as soon as BCTF is over.

It seemed equally rude to walk past Kajsastina, this lovely daisy.

Most of the pile of beauties will have to stay untouched for the next couple of weeks, put out of temptations way. They aren't right for the show, but they sure are right for me.

Ooh, Ikea has linen back?! I was praying they'd get it in again one day. I'm definitely going to go nab me some of that grey. How weird would my local Ikea think I was if I phoned before visiting to check their fabric stocks...?

Gorgeous fabrics! I'm addicted to grey and white in almost anything.

Oooh, wondering if they do it in my local Ikea? They've usually got a rubbish fabric selection. I see gorgeous fabrics on other people's blogs that they've bought in Ikea and I just can't find it in mine! How much do they charge for the linen?

ooo, I just bought some of the gray linen yesterday. It totally is the perfect gray (and I've been searching,too!). :)
