blogtoberfest day 22

I had a little stop in Ikea today (do you know you can enter the Richmond store throughout the checkouts (illegally), hit the bargain corner FIRST, then back track? And that there is s shortcut from candles to textiles?)

I picked up this fabric (you cut your own fabric and weigh it at Ikea, I cheated and bought a precut piece someone had cut, weighed and rejected)

 
and by tonight, an A line skirt.


Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.

I wish a trip to Ikea over here could work the same way - although their fabrics are worth the drama especially if you end up with such a gorgeous skirt!
