In Which the World/ a Large Swedish Furniture Retailer Conspire Against Me

1 Nov

So every once in a while, when I have something else to do that is much more important, I check out the Ikea website to see if they have any new and awesome fabric.  Yesterday I found this.

How many eons have I wanted old fashioned sailing ship fabric?  And it’s $8.99 a meter, and 60″ wide, and it’s a neutral color and being upholstery fabric perfect to make a new bag.  Good day for Tassie right?  No.  It’s not available in the lower mainland, or online, and no one is selling it on Ebay.  Or Etsy.  Oh Ikea, why must you mock me with your fabricy perfection.  I thought we were friends, I thought after all of those years of treating me to $2 breakfast, awesome meatball platters, happy Scandinavian prints at affordable prices, that you cared for me.  Why hast thou forsaken me?  Fall to knees, shake fist at setting sun.  Ok that’s out of my system.  Look, Doors!

Oh Ikea, I can’t be mad at you.
