How is everyone?
Yes, that is a strawberry souffle that I made. I smashed it out the ball part. Thank you Kitchenaid.
Going to ikea solo with a baby and pram??? No problems
Push pram 1 metre, push trolley a metre and repeat till you are completely exhausted or reach car, whichever comes first.
I swear I promised myself that I would rid my house of ikea furniture, but I have gone back on that well and truly. Oh well.
This is what I purchased.
The state of my kitchen is bothering my husband. Funny that. He doesn’t even cook. But to make both of us feel better, I am in the process of organising and tidying it up and I bought this ikea hemnes cabinet. It is not ideal, but it will do.
I would love a proper wood cabinet with glass on 3 sides. But this is the perfect dimensions and well, the price.
But I have to say. I have I put a lot of ikea flat pack! A LOT
Long time readers may remember these picture from my apartment.
This is just a few items of flat pack I have put together and I have to say. This hemnes cabinet was VERY HARD to put together.
This is part of the hemnes range too, but this was no where near as difficult.
I put the majority of the cabinet together myself. I got to the part where I had to attach the glass doors to the cabinet with the hinges, I tried a few times and then it occurred to me that I have a husband and stuff it, he can do it. So I left it for him.
Turned into a saga that spanned 3 days.
I mean, I drove to ikea with a baby and I and walked through the maze and helped myself in the factory and pushed it to the car and lifted it into the car and brought it into the house and put 90% of it together. I only asked him for help to attach the hinges.
I’m going to be honest with you guys.
I considered divorce!
He had given up on attaching the hinges and I said to him, if you don’t mind I am going to give it a go. He was begging me not to waste my time.
I pull out the instructions again, with fresh eyes and explain to him, what I wasn’t able to do and show him the instructions. I leave to go to the bathroom and I come back and it’s completed!
He didn’t even read the instructions.
. . . . .
I could have murdered him.
Anyways, I didn’t. He is safe, no need to ring the police.
I went to the quilt expo with my mum yesterday.
Arghh I love whole cloth quilts. I would love to design and make one.
My mum bought Audrey this cute little dress. I am smitten with shirring smocks.
It is stunning. The hem is hand sewn and has hand embroidery and it was $40!!!
I bought this little singlet too for Audrey to wear in summer time.
I also bought this fabric for my stash! And a bias binder maker. I need this tool to for a hooded towel I want to make for Audrey.
The roll of fabric is hand dyed fabric that my mum is a big fan of.
She made this miniature quilt. She is calling it Dolly’s blanket. She just needs to make a dolly now to give to Audrey.
She showed the owner of the company and she asked if she could take a pic on put it on her facebook page. She received 174 likes! She is hugely anti facebook, but was quite chuffed with that!!
In other house news. My good for nothing husband (ha!) finally hung this frame
I purchased it to go into Audrey’s room, but it didn’t end up in there after the edit and I found this perfect area to put it.
In between the linen cupboard and the bathroom door. It is quite coastal looking in that little corner.
Wishing you a good rest of the weekend.
