Mandala Madness Part 10

I have finished Part 10 of the Mandala Madness CAL.
The popcorn and diamond motif was the part 10 addition and a bit of a challenge, but very enjoyable.
Love how this is turning out.

Only 8 more parts/weeks to go on this, lol. 
It should be a lovely tablecloth for my round Ercol walnut table when finished.

Mandala Madness part 9

Part 9 is complete. 

The 6 rounds of Part 9 starts above the long white stitches on my mandala.

And I am half way through Part 10. Up to round 66, which is quite labour intensive with all the changes of colours and multiple repeats, and is causing quite a stir with others who are in this CAL. Personally I quite enjoyed this challenging row, and hence was singing along to the song of a similar name. 

But I have a few rounds to go until Part 10 is complete, so on to it.

And Part 8 of Mandala Madness

Part 8 of Mandala Madness is complete.

And here's a close-up of the outside edge.
Those long 'spiky' stitches were a bit on the fiddly side to keep in place.

I have been in the garden a lot lately and have started a new wild-flower area that I hope will be a great show of colour in a couple of months.
Also, have been working on my vegie patch.

One other thing for this week.
We have been adopted by Billie. Her previous owner lived in this house, and Billie wants to stay here.
We renamed her Billie because her original name was Furry, which seems rather 'non-personal' to me. The name Billie came about from Billy Fury (hahaha).
