HAPPY NEW YEAR
To make the New Year bright, I thought of making something bright and colourful.I created a `Mandala'.
I saw a lot of crocheted mandalas on the internet. I was surprised to learn from SANGEETHA sometime ago that madala is a Sanskrit word meaning a circle. Is doily and mandala the same?
I zeroed down on Barbara's Spring Mandala She has beautifully put up a tutorial which is very clear. I Learnt two new crochet stitches
The surface stitch which look like a chain of hearts... the second pink circle and the interlocking stitch... The one next to it in blue and green. Such an easy stitch and looks stunning.
Happy that I could complete the mandala quite fast... thats like starting on a positive note in the New Year. Onto a second one now :) Mandalas are addictive. I'd gift this one to a friend.
There's a crochet crazy world out there. Lets make it bright and work out new projects. To those who love crocheting. Does it not give so much of pleasure?
Oh! how could I forget the Brownie!
I baked a cake... a no hassles cake. Will share the recipe the next time
Signing off for now. Wish you all a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and a Rocking year ahead :)
