Whew, what a whirlwind weekend. A friend and I made a quick trip to the closest Ikea on Friday evening. Now I couldn't wait until the one was finished in Charlotte in 2009, plus my friend is re-doing her house, and heck, I've always thought some of the furniture there was really cool and afordable to me. Plus, I wanted to get outta town for the day! We had a pretty good trip both up and back. Only 1 small slow traffic area. Gosh, glad I wasn't leaving DC on Friday, very backed up. The way home there was like no one on 95!
So, yes, we spent all day Saturday there. It is an amazing place, one could get lost in there. We took our time, sat on chairs and sofas, checked out what would fit in the back of the truck (darn should have taken a picture of our mad packing skillz), and ate lunch there. We had to load it all ourselves..hmm they advertised helpers...but we didn't see any.
Sadly, I wanted the Expedit shelving system but it wasn't to be, there is just no room for in the my future craft/rec/son's bedroom when he visits for it. This will be his new bed, and my place to relax and knit.
So you can see a few things there...some I'll post about when they are put together and/or hung. The rest, will be in August when I occupy the room. This isn't everything, the rest is in the garage patiently waiting.
A little food came home with me.
And some plates. I've never had black plates before, and these were a great deal. Sadly, I chipped one already :(
Not much knitting or sewing accomplished on Sunday, spent it resting since I got home about 1:30 am. That'll change this evening....massive sewing going on this week!
Oh and yeah, I'm a bit excited to have the furniture ready for my new room...athough it is masking my great fear of just how much I'll miss my little man when I drop him off...in 3 months...I'll need lots of cheering up then.
