I made it out alive (just)

…from my first trip to Ikea.

I made it out!
I made it out!

I had to go along in person because the things I wanted weren’t available to buy online. And, despite having checked stock levels online before I went, one of the items I wanted wasn’t available. I was told they’d have stock at the end of January. Luckily, there was an alternate colour available that could work with my existing stuff.
Anyway …
Before my “experience” I had finished the border for the 12 Days cross-stitch, and started on the boxes.

I just need to print out the symbols key and off I go on week one. Week 2 is released tomorrow!
Here’s progress on the Re-Wrapped cardigan
