I'm Back - What I'm up to

I know it's been a while and there has been so much that has happened since I last blogged. Christmas, Brisbane flooded, my son started high school, there was a death in the family, I returned to TAFE, ticked of  couple of my day zero goals and we also have some very exciting news that I'm going to share with you all very soon.

So today I'm going to share with you all what I have been working on 
As some of you might remember we are currently making over my sons bedroom, if you didn't catch that post you can read about it here. Over the holidays I spotted a crochet rug on a website (I cant remember where, oops) my son loved it and wanted one like it for his new room. So here is my work in progress.  

It was only about 50cm across here and has grown since I took this pic. I'm making it using 180cm wide stretch jersey knit that I got from J.J's at Redcliffe for only $4 a mitre cut into strips and sewn together to make a very long cord. I don't have a pattern so I'm just winging it, I have had to undo a couple of rows a couple of times but I think I'm onto a formula now that is working.

Stay tuned for follow up pics, I will also be blogging some of the things that have happened since I last blogged.
