Black, White, and Red Top...Done! Ikea Furniture Up!

I have had and extremely busy 4 days! First things first. My hubby and I worked hard all weekend emptying a portion of my studio and then building 2 Ikea units, from the VARDE collection. We also put up 2 shelves from the LACK collection. I moved everything back in and I am completely organized and loving it. Here is a picture with the pieces in place....I spent Sunday placing everything back in and organizing. I love, love, love it..oh wait I said that already.

Then the rest of Sunday was spent on completing the black, white, and red quilt top for my friend. Here is a picture of my cat Beanie modeling it for you.I will actually have a picture of it quilted in just a few days. I am going to put it on my Gammill tomorrow night to quilt it. The pattern is called Twisted Sister by Ami Simms. It was really easy to do. I am thinking of making another in brights!

I also just have to leave you with one more picture of my Rolo just for laughs!! He is such a character!! Have a great night!

Ohh I love the furniture! (but not as much as I LOVED all that delicious CT candy, thanks) so what did you put in the drawers?

Your cats crack me up.

Ikea is so practical. I love the look you greated and all those drawers, wow. They will be full quickly I expect.
Enjoy your new room! Happy quilting.

I have that same IKEA drawer unit. It is in my kitchen right now, but as soon as we move back to the US, it graduates to the sewing room. Your fabric stacks look so neat and orderly. It is beautiful to look at.

This sewing room furniture is perfect! I could use some shelves like that and the ruler hanger upper thing...where do I find one of those?

Jen said...

Love those drawers! I've had my eye on them myself. I was at IKEA this weekend myself...grabbed some fabric.

I almost bought that same drawer unit from Ikea! It looks awesome... maybe there's another trip to Ikea in store for me.
