The last few weeks have been busy, busy, busy preparing for my eldest son’s wedding. My daughter in law entrusted me with mandela making for a Victorian Sweet cart and decorating a Wishing Well. I worried about every detail but I needn’t of fretted….
It’s been a busy few weeks but I have still managed to dip my toes and occasionally submerge myself in glorious colour.
Busy, busy week at work so I need my fix of crochet, colour and scrummy food. I am busy crocheting colourful mandalas for my son’s wedding in a month’s time. I am using an adapted pattern from Zooty owl’s blog. I have just made a yummy recipe from this month’s Vegetarian Living magazine, broad beans with garlic,dill and eggs bag halva ghatogh. I didn’t realise I liked broad beans until now. Now there must be time for just a quick stroll in the garden!
Woke early this morning with the challenges of a busy day at work racing through my mind. What was needed was a few minutes in the garden…quiet time just for me and of course a row of crochet. Happy and contented….
Just finished and blocked this Colourful Mandala published in Simply Crochet.The pattern is one of Wink’s weekly mandalas from her blog a creative being.
Really enjoying working with the colours for this project. However, I’ve realised that
I need to refine some of my techniques. I seem to be more of a freeform girl and sometimes struggle keeping to a pattern. Part of me thinks long live the freeform….
Just starting a new mandala….
