And A Free Form Life.
This is a journal of my Fiberart Stitching adventures, Miniature Dolls House work, Embroidery, Crochet, Knitting, Bobbin lace and other crafts as the whim takes me.
That is beautiful!!! Your stitch work is lovely.
Thank you Dianna.
Love the colors you're using, it's looking lovely already :)
Thank you Casey.
This is beautiful! Love the colours.
Thank you Sharon.
Gorgeous, I love your colour choices.
Thank you Lucy.
Stunning. Just stunning.
How large is it? It is quite pretty. The colors just flow together.
Thank you Marsha. It's approx. 26" (65cm) now.
Wow! Blown away with your make to be honest. It's very intricate and beautiful. You must have lots patience :) Leah x
Thank you Faith. Yes I have patience for things I love doing, lol.
Amazing work! Beautiful colors and what hook size do you use? Is it thread? The mandalas I see being made are like masterpieces! Congratulations!
Thank you Sam. I'm using a 1.25 hook with #10 & #12 perle cotton and some #20 mercerized crochet thread. I like the different textures I get when using different thicknesses of thread.
Oh, it's beautiful, Cyra. I love this in the soft colors you're using. I, too, am curious what you're using (thread, or small yarn?), and the size you anticipate it being.
Thank you Becki, 1.25 hook and a variety of threads (#10, #12 #20). It's approx. 26" now, and I anticipate it growing about another 6 to 12 inches.
Wow, great job. It's like a museum piece.
Thank you. After taking on this epic pattern I think you need to put ME in that museum.
Wow, beautiful! Will you be making it into a blanket? Or will it just be a round blanket? I love the colors you are using and how they are painting a beautiful work of art.
Thank you Donna. It is made with crochet cotton thread and will be a round table cloth for my 'special' round walnut dining table.
Absolutely gorgeous work. I love mandalas. This reminds me of a kaleidoscope.
Thank you Dorothy. Yes I love mandalas and kaleidoscopes too. I'm fascinated with patterns.
Your mandala is mesmerizing. I can't wait to see how it looks when it's complete.
Thank you Lisa, I'm looking forward to seeing it finished too. At the moment I have no idea what colour/s I shall use next, just playing it by ear (eye).
That is just so gorgeous, love the colours and stitch work!
Thank you Ruth. I'm rather pleased with how it's going too.
How pretty!!! I love it!
Thank you Karen. It's a mystery CAL that I'm very much enjoying.
Oh wow! How beautiful is that!! That is crochet? In the first photo it looked like a quilted piece to me. Such intricate work.xoxo
Thank you Kim, yes it is all crochet. Pattern designed by Helen Shrimpton.
Yet another great addition Cyra - it's looking so amazing. I, for one, am going to be sad when you finish this because it's been so much fun to watch it grow and wonder what the next addition might be.
Thank you MA. I might have to start another one in a completely different colour scheme haha. It has been a very interesting process, not knowing what the next Part will look like. But I'm a couple of weeks behind at the moment (it's a LOT of work each week). Hope to catch up soon though, as the very last final part is published this Thursday.
Wow, that's stunning! So many different stitches creating all those different textures! Really beautiful!
Thank you. It was a bit of big learning curve.
