My husband recently returned from a trip to Dubai in the UAE.
Much to my delight he was able to make a quick visit to a nearby IKEA there and pick up some Britten Nummer fabric for me!
I've had my eye on this fabric for awhile, as I've heard it makes wonderful backing and it looks great too.
It is wide!
Wider than I was expecting it to be!
The nearest IKEA to my house is three hours away, and I always thought I'd make a trip there someday when we were passing by and get some Britten Nummer fabric to try out.
Little did I know that IKEA would stop selling it in the US. Oh no! What to do?
I did a little research and discovered that it was still available in other parts of the world, so my sweet husband got some for me when he had the chance.
He was certainly nice to carry a suitcase full of fabric around for me!
He loves his quilter!
On the 'never having been to an IKEA' subject, we plan to remedy that when we go on vacation this summer.
How can we have never tried their Swedish Meatballs?
Well we have tried to make them ourselves, with lots of success I might add!
My family loves this Almost Famous Swedish Meatball Recipe from Food Network Kitchens. Lingonberry Jam and all!
In fact, that's what my husband asked for for Father's Day! Nothing else! Just the Swedish Meatball dish.
That's why there is a trip to IKEA in our future.
Now the question is, how many of those aqua craft carts do you think he'll let me fit in the car while we drive around to different places while on vacation?
