My little Secret...Ikea Love!

I have a secret I've been keeping from you the last few weeks. Yesterday I got a box of goodies...
from IKEA!!!
Ikea not only answered this post from me, but they went above and beyond in sending me some awesome items to try and reveal to you!
Christine from Ikea sent me several yards of 3 different fabrics (Evalena, Julita, and Berta Rand in red). As well as, some thread, a 15 piece sewing starter kit, and an AWESOME textiles book, called Love for Textiles!

Really! I was THRILLED, as you can imagine! It felt like Christmas morning opening this box! Cai was pretty excited too. The box became an instant slide for his cars...
And while I was loving running my hands over the fabrics, Cai was jumping up and down for joy on the bubble wrap, too.

I'm going to take a little bit of time to sew using all these goodies and starting in April, I plan to do an Ikea Collection for you to enjoy. I think you will like it, especially this book...
Actually... you might as well just go to your nearest store and get one for yourself, because it's already changed the way I view textiles. Pretty sure I'm ready to go hang some fabric from some trees... or a chair... haha!

Thank you, Ikea! Thank you Christine! And everybody... get excited! :)
