I’m in heaven or have been or can a Sunday be better? 😊

Jag har under en veckas tid gett min man smĂ„ hintar om att vi borde göra en liten utflykt . Man fĂ„r göra sĂ„ sĂ„ att det Ă€r han som kommer med idĂ©en annars sĂ„ blir det bara nej 😊 Jag ville nĂ€mligen Ă„ka till Stoff &  Stil – ett paradis för sy och tygnördar som jag. IgĂ„r föreslog min man att vi skulle Ă„ka dit sĂ„ idag var vi dĂ€r och jag tycker att jag varit i himmelriket (bokstavligen talat) 😊. Det var sĂ„ fint och de hade byggt om sĂ„ det sĂ„g ut som man var I en godisaffĂ€r.
NĂ„gra smĂ„ inköp blev det. Men först fick jag tillbringa en halvtimme pĂ„ ett annat favoritstĂ€lle – IKEA – i vĂ€ntan pĂ„ att Stoff & Stil skulle öppna. DĂ€r hittade jag nĂ„gra tygkassar för 9 kronor styck – jag kan inte en köpa tyg för den summan 😊
I have in a week's time given my husband little hints that we should do a little excursion. You must do so which means that he comes with the idea otherwise it will only be no 😊 I wanted to go to Stoff & Stil - a paradise for sewing and fabric nerds like me. Yesterday my husband suggested we should go there and today we were there and I think I was in heaven (literally) 😊. It was so nice and they had rebuilt so it looked like you were in a candy shop.
Some small purchases were made. But first I had to spend half an hour at another favorite place - IKEA - waiting for Stoff & Stil to open. There I found some bags for 9 SEK - I can not buy a fabric for that sum 😊
Det fanns visa saker jag bestÀmt att jag skulle köpa pÄ Stoff & Stil sÄsom en ny quiltlinjal. Min förra hade gÄtt av pÄ tvÄ stÀllen och det var svÄrt att se och skÀra pga lim och tejp.
There were things I had decided I would buy at Stoff & Stil like a new quilt ruler. My former had broken to two places and it was hard to see and cut due to glue and tape.

Sedan hade jag bestÀmt att jag skulle köpa lite olika vadd och mellanlÀgg.
Then I decided that I would buy some different batting and interfacing.
Samt lite resÄr och kantband..
As well as a little elasticity and bias binding.
Men sedan var det det som jag sÄg och tyckte jag behövde sÄsom nÄgra beiga Fatquarters.
But then it were some other things I saw and thought I needed like some beige Fatquarters.
Wondertejp och en fingerborg i lÀder.
Wondertape and a thimble in leather.
JerseynÄlar, flower pins och nÄgra stora Wonderclips.
Jersey needles, flower pins and some large Wonderclips.
En magnetnÄldyna och nÄgra smÄ magnetar.
A magnet pinholder and some small magnets.
Lite trĂ„d – samt nĂ„gra ekologiska bomullstrĂ„dar. JĂ€ttevackra trĂ€spolar.
Some thread - as well as some organic cotton threads. Really nice wooden spools.
Lite jerseytyger.
Some jersey fabrics.
