Last week, we put all the items we wanted from IKEA on a list and actually bought them. We finally got the new bed we have been wanting. We got my little guy his big bed, as his third birthday present. And, I got a Kallax shelving unit to store my fabric in. The price of shipping is per delivery not per item, so it just made sense.
If you live without IKEA then you might not know about this marvelous piece of furniture. It is a box of cubic holes, that you can place storage bins into, or store books, or use their drawer insert and add a cat bed.
This is the one I bought:
And, of course, I picked up the cat bed for it.
So, the next order of business is to move the boxes and bins out of my sewing room, so I can put the shelving in to store them.
Progress is being made, but I need to move some more out. I am not showing you the mess that is still to be moved. At the same time, I am pulling fabric for some projects for my upcoming quilt retreat.On the couch, you can see the start of that. Not much sewing is being done, but I am hopeful that I will have some better organization soon.
I have been knitting.
One of a pair of baby socks, the yarn is leftover from an adult pair in Turtlepurl OM colourway. The pattern is Kate Atherley's baby sock, my favourite baby sock pattern. There might even be a hat from the leftovers.
It was garbage day on Tuesday, and you always see the most interesting things.
A crow (or possibly a raven) is inspecting the neighbours' garbage for items they were suppose to put into the organic composting bin. Obviously the city is getting serious about keeping organics out the landfill, and they have hired this guy to check our bins.
