Life must be getting back to normal. Recently I picked up my deserted crochet project that had been on the go months before little Tui came along. It was at an almost finished stage so I decided to finish it once and for all. It started out as a door mat using leftover bits of yarn from my stash. Then I realized that I had messed up the pattern and it was way too big for a door mat. I decided to call it a rug instead. Then I realized that it wasn't really going to be a great rug either. This is so typical of all my crocheting endeavors. Luckily my crafty sister in law Anna saw it and suggested making into a lumbar cushion. Perfect! A cushion it would become. It only took a few days to finish it off and once I did I discovered that it actually doesn't suit anywhere in our house. It temporarily is in the kids room on their little settee until I find someone to give it to or until the next time we move house (probably never) or redecorate (most likely not going to happen in this decade).
