Aaron and I spent the afternoon in Malmo, Sweden yesterday. It is about a forty minute drive from where we are currently living. We walked around the shopping district and got Aaron some soccer gear, as he will start playing soon. We ate lunch in this cute little cafe in the center of town.
Aaron and I stumbled upon a Marimekko fabric store, and I was in heaven. Marimekko fabric is from Finland, but is sold throughout Scandinavia. Aaron fell in love with this fabric for Baby Noodle's room. I bought a meter and am planning on making a quilt out of it. I want to add navy blue, orange, kelly green, and some other colors and unusual patterns in the quilt. We may check out Ikea today and see if they have any fabric that will work.
I also bought a meter of this Marimekko fabric with retro glasses and bowls. I might make place mats, although things will probably get spilled on them. Maybe a bag that is washable? Pillows?
This was our view on the drive home to Denmark. The road disappears and goes underwater!
