Tonight, on February 29

Ikea had a sale, to celebrate February 29th. (It doesn't come around that often you know. One of my friends here in Melbourne has a son celebrating his 11th birthday today. Well, he's 44 really.) I had already planned to buy a table at Ikea today and then they were having a sale! My table ($150 worth) was not on sale. However, one I had hankered after, but given up on, was on sale. It was $100 more than the planned table, but also $100 less than its usual price. So you see, I couldn't lose. I did spend $100 more than I planned, but I also saved $100 so I came out even. (Don't ask me to explain this again. It's gets all fuzzy the more I explain it!)

So I got a table AND I worked on the blouses some more. They are all finished except for buttons now. So tomorrow I will be sewing buttons!

Nice work....I love that you were able to justify your purchase so "simply" - your little red club quilt looks nice on the table....is it finished? Mine isn't....

That's the same table we have in our dining room! I got ours off eBay for $90! I just wish ours was the chocolate colour not the brown/black.
