Part 6 - with a pink blush

Mandala Madness - Part 6 added

Complete with a 'blush' of peachy-pink and with an orange glowing edge as the sun sets once more on another beautiful day.

We are told that the 'points' will curl a bit at this point in the proceedings.

And another MM round

Another round on the Mandala Madness CAL bites the dust.
Part 5 complete.

I'm calling it 'Summers End' because that is where we are in this part of the world (NZ) at the moment, and my colours, so far, resemble the glow of the sun on the lower arc as it rises from behind Mt. Egmont every morning, and then sets over the beautiful white surf sea in the eve. 

Not sure where I want to go with my colours next though. Will ponder on it some more.

Mandala Madness Part 3

I'm still playing catch-up with the Mandala Madness CAL.
Here it is with Part 3 added. 

Love the yellow addition to my neutrals here. I wasn't sure if yellow would work with the other colours, but I needn't have worried.

Onwards and outwards - part 4 awaits me.

Mandala Madness CAL part 2

The next couple rounds are complete now, and I am about to start with Part 3 soon.
Catching up slowly. I don't know how so many of the other CAL crafters are managing to get two or even three of these mandalas done each week.
I expect that things will get even slower when the 'rounds' get larger as it will take an awfully long time to complete just one round.
But for now, we are given a few rounds to complete each week.

Did I mention that this is a mystery CAL too, so we don't know what the finished Mandala will look like.

Here is mine so far -
  Coffee, Cream & White Chocolate

And I made a Ruffled Hexagon before I began on the mandala, and I am thinking about what border I want on it.
It needs blocking yet but I can't find which of the million packing boxes my pins are in 
(I may have to buy more pins)
Here it is -

Mandala Madness Crochet Along

I've joined in on the Mandala Madness CAL (Crochet-A-Long)

I'm a bit late starting it. I only managed to get rows 1 - 10 done so far, which is only about half way through Part One. 

Part Two and Part Three have already been posted.
Here is the link to the CAL.

Not a great deal of stitching has been done in the Lewis residence as the gardens have been taking up most of my time,
