One of my favourite blogs to read is that of the lovely Lucy at Attic24. She is a very busy lady, who puts a lot of effort into her posts that are extremely well written and inspirational. She and a number of other ladies from Skipton in North Yorkshire are organising a wool themed weekend called Yarndale. Lucy asked her readers to create a mandala for display at the fair. She was inundated with the response - 1182 mandalas from 49 countries (including one from me).
Lucy unbelievably photographed every one and you can see them on Pinterest under Yarndale.
After completing my first one I liked the idea of doing some more to hang on the wall. So I tried the Sunny Flower Mini Mandala design on Zootyowlcards blog and this was the result
It again was quite an easy pattern and quick to do. I tried to iron it flat, not a good idea when you are using acrylic yarn, because it takes all the definition out of the texture of the stitches - live and learn!
I think I will investigate some more patterns, so I have more of a display - better get pattern hunting ......
