My first wee tablecloth...Mandala style

I've finished my lil experiment & am pretty pleased with 
the result.....even though its no longer mine!!!
Lauren really felt the colors would look better in her place...
I agree, next one is gonna be more subtle to look like a 
match for my living room


Pinned & sprayed it Wednesday evening (can't for the life of me remember the 
correct term right now, bet it'll pop into my head as soon as I've finished the post)
Hold on a mo........I blocked it :D
And hey presto...one colorful table doiley/tablecloth.


I played around with stitches...what fun, its amazing how flexible crochet is..
A lot of fun, can't wait to do another for ME!!!!


Still it does look pretty in Lauren's place.
Time for some hot chocolate & crocheting of my blankie, slow....very slow ;o
Hope you all have a wonderful  creative fun lazy weekend
Lots of love Karen xxxxxx

  7. It's so beautiful, Karen! I've never blocked anything. I do love playing around with stithces, but on a much smaller scale (like the handtowel borders and rock/jar covers). :) Hope you have a fabulous day. Tammy
