Ikea gets its craft on

A recent trip to Ikea found me impressed by (and not a little bit expectant of) the range of crafty nods throughout the store…
The powers that be have noticed, it seems, that their various storage solutions are perfect for the home crafter – and have also increased their stock of specific craft supplies too…

Raskog kitchen storage repurposed for craft materials…

A budget sewing machine – not for the major stitcher but a fun tryer-outer for little people, perhaps – SY for £45

Mock craft room in a bureau – Hemnes storage combination

Tastrup rug with buttons on!
Decorative crochet patches applied to a plain cushion…

Me, I wasn’t alone, then in my quest for crafty bits and bobs, and came away with two lots of mini drawers to sort out my craft cess pit *ahem* room, and a little something to have a go at re-crafting soon, too….

RSI of the Wrist

Realise stash increasing
Reduce stitch inventory
Reading Stories instead

No hooking/knitting/hand sewing around these parts for six weeks. 

Rather sorry individual.
