Putting Things Together

My company left Sunday and so I've begun putting together my Borgasmord.  I have 5 of the 8 rows assembled and in person it looked more chaotic, I was afraid that if anyone asked I'd have to point out stars, but in the picture I can see the stars more readily, I like how pictures can give you more prospective on things. 

I'm starting to hope believe that scrappy delight could win out over mishmash nightmare in the finished product.

My niece and I made our trip to Ikea while she was here.  She hadn't been before and of course neither had her kids, but they all loved it.  While we did the upper floor the three girls stayed in the children's center, then we got them out, had a delicious lunch and did the bottom floor.  The kids wanted to return to the children's center, but it was too crowded and they had lost their spot.   I got this chair, some seat cushions, a bit of fabric and a couple of other small items.  My niece and the kids all got some goodies, too.  I put this chair together myself, I was pleased with the chair and with myself.   My DH has had more issues than usual the past few months and so I'm having to do things that he would have done in the past.  I could have asked one of my grandsons or waited for a visit from my brothers, but I decided that "I am woman".   Now it is on to replacing a shower head and a toilet seat and I know that I can do it, lol.
PS  I even sat in it to sew together my Borgasmord and it didn't fall down.

Anniversary, Ikea, and Mail

Yesterday was my DH and my anniversary, but he wasn't feeling too well, so we decided to celebrate today instead. First we went and had lunch at Bahama Breeze, which was delicious as always and then we went to Ikea, as they were having their first sale ever since they opened in Orlando. The sale was a disappointment, but I did make a few purchases. The sale things that I got were the potholders 2 for .99 cents, and the fabric. Has anyone used the cotton fabric from Ikea. I hope that it is good, as I got 10 yards. it is 59 inches wide, and was on sale for 1.99 and I thought that it would make a nice backing on girly quilts. The little clock was 2.99, and I needed one in front of my sewing machine, so far so good it has run for about 3 hours, and the wooden box is for my paper storage by my printer.

When I got back home I had finally gotten my package from Connecting Thread. I have heard good things about their thread so I'm going to give it a try, and I got the yellow gingham for a baby quilt.
I haven't given up on my Orange Crush. I haven't exactly been keeping my shoulder to the wheel, but I have gotten my borders cut out, and my little extra blocks almost finished sewing together to use in the border. I'm almost ready to sew the borders on.
